How can I beat this DUI charge
I left my Debit Card at a gas station pump in Harrison, New York and returned almost two hours after closing to search for it. I found it but as I was returning to my car a police officer arrived and asked me why I was in a closed gas station, when I replied that i was looking for a lost debit card, he asked me if I lived in the area and where I was from, and shined his flashlight at me. He asked me to turn the car off and called for back up, they asked me to search my car and found a small amount of marijuanna. They arrested me and charged me with DUI, however I was not charged with possession of marijuana nor I did not take a blood test. I was also outside of the car when they arrived. What can I do?
There may be a suppression issue regarding asking to search the car. Hire a good criminal defense lawyer.

Am I right?
I often wondered why they call them "escorts," because they certainly don't take you anywhere. However, that aside, no...

You cannot "plead guilty" to anything and, at the same time, "receive an ACOD". They are different. Pleading guilty is...
Will New York DMV know that I have warrant for a probation violation in Massachusetts when I go to get NY ID
I have a probation violation for misdemeanor assault and battery from 6 years ago. I have gotten ID in both California and Florida but I'm wondering about NY, as it is much closer geographically and may have different laws or systems in place. Just an I'd, not drivers liscence.
The best advice is to address your outstanding probation violation. No sense ignoring a problem which will never go...
