I got a DWI. My ticket says I'm to appear in court at 4:00 A.M. which is wrong. Can I get the charge thrown out because of this?
I got a DWI. My ticket says I'm to appear in court at 4:00 A.M. which is wrong. Can I get the charge thrown out because of this?
I do not think that the summons stating the wrong time to appear in court is a critical error that will lead to a dismissal.
CPL 30.30 question. Can anyone shed some light on why i wouldn't get the charges dismissed or why I should take the plea offer?
I was charged with unsafe lane change and dwi 1192(3) in July 2015. I was never issued the additional charge of 1192(2) even after they received my chemical blood BAC of .14. My lawyer and I have since attended court five times which the fifth being when we asked for a bench trial. They scheduled trial for 1/7/2016, the judge then postponed due to scheduling conflict and rescheduled for 2/11/2016. On February 2nd we were notified of another postponement, which 'the people' could not give a reason for postponement nor did they give a reschedule date. My lawyer did not consent to this adjournment. Since then, We have had no contact with the ADA or court since. My lawyer filed a motion to dismiss based on CPL 30.30 yesterday. The ADA has just contacted him with a plea offer of DWAI. I am not sure what to do. Can anyone shed some light on why we wouldn't get the charges dismissed or why I should take the offer? I don't want to cut myself short if it could get dropped all together. Thank you. I am not sure what to do. Can anyone shed some light on why we wouldn't get the charges dismissed or why I should take the offer? I don't want to cut myself short if it could get dropped.
