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?

Can you get a DUI almost 4 months after an accident?
My brother was in a very bad car accident. He was in ICU for a month and then he was in TBI therapy for a month, he has been home for about 1.5 months since the accident in September. On Christmas Eve the officer called and said he would be getting charged with a DUI because he had THC present in his system. He has told us he did not smoke that morning before the accident but did within the last couple of days. I have read that if it appears in his system even if he was not impaired he could still be charged. (which is the case but we can not wrap our head around the fact that this is almost 4 months later) How can they go from telling my mom over and over that there was nothing in his system to now this?
Your brother should speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney ASAP for possible representation if in fact he...
How many times can the DAs office postpone motions hearings before a DWI case is tossed out
I was charged with DWI March 17, 2016. I was offered and accepted to have blood work test done but due to some circumstances that was never completed so there is no evidence of my blood alcohol content. My lawyer has filed motions to suppress some Evidence and the DAs office has been postponing it since August 2016 six times now. The last time we were at court the judge told the DA to schedule this and the next time it's postponed he's tossing it out for lack of due process. My question is should it not be tossed out by now?
There is case law that says the failure by the DA to timely comply with a motion schedule is chargable for speedy trial...

Can i renew my tlc license in westchester County, NY after pleading guilty to dwai?
I pled guilty to a Dwai. My tlc permit was suspended until completing the required 7 week course and any other requirements. Upon completion they handed me back my permit saying i was good to go. I just found out my renewal was denied and was not given an explanation. Is there a way to appeal this?
If I remember correctly, you can't have a TLC license with any type of DWI conviction, even the DWAI violation.
