Can a defendants statement be used against him if he was obviously and knowingly intoxicated upon writing the statement?
The accused is initially being charged with a felony sex crime, and four misdemeanors.He spent a month incarcerated and was R.O.R, scentencing was postponed pending a PSI and R.O.R was granted based upon agreement of reduction of all charges to a Sex abuse 2nd charge. However, according to the public defender the major reasoning for the charges Is the DA has a statement the defendant wrote against himself, but the defendant was intoxicated and upon mental evaluation, was found to be suicidal when the statement was written, is this legal? Also the defendant unknowingly agreed to the plea deal for the sex abuse second, can that guilty plea be retracted? and is there grounds for dismissal?
In order to determine whether the statement is admissible the Court would have to hold a Dunaway-Huntley hearing....

Conditional license from DMV?
I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested. After the hearing, the DMV took my license away for a year based on my refusal. Can I get a conditional license? The woman judge hearing the case was really mean.
You can apply for the conditional license in light of the plea.
Not guilty for DUI
I was arrested in the US by the tribal police for supposedly being under the influence of drugs, which I wasn't. I passed the breathalyser, I didn't do great on the field test (walking in a straight line thing) but it was obviously sober and not under the influence. The copy took me to a hospital to take a blood test, I took it and he said it will be back in 3-6 months. My first hearing is in a few days. I took a test in Canada and it was (unsurprisingly) negative. What should I expect at the first hearing? Will I be arrested? Do I really need a lawyer if the results are obviously negative. Thanks
You were arrested and it sounds as if you are facing criminal charges. Yes, you need a lawyer. As far as what to...
Question about probable cause on a DWI?
I unfortunately was arrested for a DWI. I was followed late at night, by an off duty cop who was driving his own personal vehicle, a Jeep, with off road auxiliary lights on super high. He followed me all the way to my home. I felt extremely scared and didn't know who he was. He also was tailgating me extremely close. My security camera at my home captured him doing this. He apparently made a call (I don't know to whom as I never recd the reports or if there was a 911 call) and I subsequently was arrested for DWI by another cop. I wanted to find out if this would still constitute probable cause? He claimed that I was driving erratic, which I was definitely was because I was frightened out of my mind. I am female and live alone. He never identified himself so I was terrified. Thank you.
i would have to read the complaint. If it says that the arresting officer was informed by the other off duty cop that...
Will an arrest for DWI in NYS with a court date for July 8th - prohibit my husband & I from Montreal, Quebec on July 2?
About three weeks ago we had a scary situation occur that landed me in the hospital. I had pulled over in a parking lot with chest pain and 911 was eventually called. The next thing I could remember was being taken to a hospital. The officers that arrived at the scene ended up arresting me and charging me with DWI once I was at the hospital - I was shocked, to say the least. I was never taken to a station, I was not fingerprinted and I had no mug shots - because I was in the hospital. My husband and I were married earlier this month and have a get-a-way planned for July 2 - July 6 in Montreal, Quebec. I am not scheduled to appear in court until July 8th. So, there is no conviction, etc. Are we doing to be turned away at the border? I have no idea how any of this works and am quite upset.
Possibly. Contact the Canadian Consulate to obtain permission before attempting to enter Canada.
Will I lose my DMV refusal hearing? I thought my DWI case was over!!
About a year ago I received a dwi and refused the breathalyzer. I went through the whole process and had my initial dmv hearing within the first 10 days of my arraignment. At that time my lawyer had a scheduling conflict and didn't show up to the hearing and so it was adjourned. I went through the whole process and ended up with a dwai plea deal that dropped the refusal charge. I paid thousands in fines, took weekly classes, and did 40 hours of community service, and had a 3 month license suspension. For the past six months I thought this was behind me Well today I got a letter in the mail from the dmv saying I have to come back for that refusal hearing. Can I really lose my license for a year when the charge was dropped? I'm very upset as my lawyer never said this was a possibility
What specifically did the letter say? I would recommend discussing the letter with your attorney, and asking him,...
