What is the likelyhood of first time offender getting off DWI felony charges?
so my friend was arrested for a double dwi charge. driving extremely fast, with her kid in the car. she blew well over a .22 on the breathalizer test too. what is the likely hood of her keeping custody of her kid? with a good lawyer she won't have to do any time, right? just pay pentalties? and a good lawyer will help make sure she doesn't loose her kid too, right? no worries there? a friend of ours told her (even though she's known to be a heavy drinker) if she doesn't have any priors, she'll probably be fine with a good lawyer. is this true? i mean with enough letters of recommendation from people who don't really know her but are well respected in the community, she'll likely be fine, right? just probation stuff to do?

Can a CPS case be indicated if I failed a drug test that cps never sent to a lab?
It was only for marijuana and the cup spilled over and was never sent to a lab. I also had a drug evaluation done and passed the drug test they gave me at the lab. The drug evaluation came up as undiagnosed but he would like for me to do a few therapy sessions with him as well as a few more tests...does this look bad for me or is there a good chance the case will be unfounded?
It sounds like we are falling into the middle of something. Contact the attorney who is handling this case for you....

Are these testing conditions valid for field sobriety tests pertaining to DWI/DWAI charge in New York?
Can any of the following be used to challenge the validity of the walk-and-turn and/or one-leg-stand: 1) ambient temperature 51° F 2) windy conditions due to site being shoulder of expressway at top of mountain (wind chill discomfort aspect and/or force of wind itself) Can the fact that the cruiser's emergency lights were still flashing be used to challenge validity of the walk-and-turn, as they would have been flashing in subject's eyes for the return 9 steps? (One leg stand was done facing away from cruiser lights.) In officer's nighttime roadside demonstration of walk-and-turn, are officer's arms supposed to be at his side? He was holding flashlight with one hand and other hand was in front, pointing down.
The standard field sobriety tests are subject to challenge. They are designed to be administered on a dry, flat...
Searching for expert witness(es) for DWI/DWAI case in New York: eye condition, contact lenses, and field sobriety tests
For DWI case in New York, I would like to find individual(s) who can testify as expert on two topics: First, someone to testify that someone who is a wearer of rigid gas permeable hard contact lenses and/or suffers from eye condition keratoconus can both experience sudden and severe ocular pain that can give rise to errant driving and exhibit an appearance and characteristics that police commonly consider indication of intoxication, and that police can and do mistake the two despite their training. Second, I would like to find an expert witness who can review a dash cam video recording of actual performance of field sobriety tests and can testify as to their unreliability in general. Names of such individuals or simply where/how to search for such individuals would be helpful.

Can you tell me the consequences for accidentally trespassing into someones home when drunk?
My friend, he's 20, was really drunk and he blacked out in someones house down the road. The people living there found him in the morning and didn't know him so they called the police and pressed charges for breaking in. He has no idea how he got there. I am guessing he will be charged with trespassing in the second degree and fined for underage drinking.
It starts out with what crime is he being charged with. If its trespass, with no damage. he will probably not do any...
