If a state trooper knows u have been drinking, should they ask u to get behind the wheel and drive...when u arent in the car
My son who is mentally disabled, had been drinking at a funeral. he was outside talking to people when a state trooper pulled up, whom he knows and they were just talking. Why did that trooper ask my son to get behind the wheel and drive 8miles.."to talk" whenhe knew he had been drinking, that could have been a fatality. Then arrested him, but said they would make the tickets disappear if he would wear a wire to do drug buys for them. Since he refused, they (law enforcement) has put us thru hell. Isnt this entrapment?? We dont know what to do, we cant afford a lawyer and the public defender is on their side.
Try contacting the State Police headquarters in Albany. As to speak with someone in Internal Affairs. 518-457-6811....
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.
Dwi in nyc
I asked this before but made an error. So ill ask again. I was stopped at a check pt in queens. Arrested and taken to the precinct. At the precinct I passed the movement/sobriety test but got a .09 on the breath test (not .08 as I stated before). I read for it to be dismissed it has to go to trial, but what are my other options? Can it be brought down to a violation and what kind? Does it affect my license?
A good lawyer should be able to negotiate a reduction to a traffic infraction. This will carry a 90 license suspension...
