What are the chances of reducing a misdemeanor on a 2nd dwi in 3 years Nassau?
1st case was dropped to violation. In this dwi the pre trial offer is probation and a misdemeanor charge I did a FST and blew .10 at the station.
Unlikely. You need to hire a really good criminal defense attorney. Among those on AVVO, I know that Oscar Michelin is...
I was convicted of a felony dwi and I took a plea deal. The officer on the scene illicted a confession that I smoked marijuana
The officer in the scene illicted a confession from me that I smoke pot and drove my car by telling me to tell the truth and I will get to go home. I said no I didn't take any drugs about five or six times before I broke down and admitted I smoke pot and drove my car this was at 6pm. I told him I smoke at noon. Then he said Monday it was later . I said ok I smoke at 2 then no 4pm. Then he arrested me. No pot was found and in truth I took a few percocets earlier in the day so my eyes were pinned. I was only stopped because I was hit head on by a driver who also was charged with dwi and was deemed 100 percent at fault in the accident. My life is ruined I lost two professional licenses I went to college for and my livelihood in the process. I already took a plea but do I have any recourse? I am incredibly angry that the corrupt police lied to me to illict a confession. I refused urinalysis but I passed the field sobriety tests and also the ones back at the precinct. But they had me dead to rights because of my confession. Anything I can do here? Now I have a distrust of the police and anxiety problem anlong with being finanacially challenged to say the least. Is there anything I can ?
Challenging the confession was something that needed to be done at the time of the case. Withdrawing a guilty plea is...
Would I get drug tested for a job in court?
I was recently looking into court interpreting as a job, someone recommended it to me and I like the idea, seems like a great job... BUT, I have recently tried marijuana and I'm worried that will be an issue. Will I get tested? I'm not asking to see what I can get away with, I'm simply trying to figure out if I should go for it now or wait til I'm clean.
Probably not, but wait a few weeks, why risk it.
Have there been cases recently of police corruption as far as Long Island police gauging by making arrests at end of shift?
I personally was arrested for dwi in Farmingdale in Nassau at 6 pm. They lied to me and told me I can go home if I tell them I smoked pot and drove I can go home.after about six negative responses I broke down and admitted I did. They promptly arrested me. The driver who caused the accident resulting in my arrest was already in police car under arrest for dwi. So now with both of us arrested the other cop got overtime also. I heard them discussing overtime. My eyes were foggy but I passed all of practical sobriety exams on scene and at precinct. I refused usrinalysis but took breathalyzer which read 0.0. Long Island especially Nassau police I believe are extremely corrupt and lied to me to illict a confession. I read this practice is legal in your country and it appeals me. Criminal justice system is totally broken and can't be fixed. Mass incarceration isn't disgusting. I did jail time and didn't deserve it. They need to decriminalize drugs so people like me won't have their lives ruined for putting a drug in my own body I voluntarily chose to. Total b s . I hope someone agrees with me.
It is illegal to drive a car while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or even some prescriptive medication that can...
