How would we go about getting a judge's ruling overturned? He freed a woman that made a hit and run and was intoxicated.
The defendant hit my cousin and didn't stop and he rolled up and over her van and later on after someone tracked her down and followed her, she told the police she thought she hit a piece of ice but the police say, there's no way possible the damage could have been caused by a piece of ice. Originally, she was charged with a couple of felonies. THE OFFENSE OF CT 3 FAILURE TO STOP AFTER ACCIDENT F3. CT 5 OPERATING A MOTOR VEHICLE WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS. The judged knocked them down to where she only had misdemeanor and she was only ordered 18 months in prison and only after 7 wks, the judge granted her early release, only after saying when she was originally charged, she would get at least 18 months with no chance of early release. Is there anything that can be done and how?
I doubt it. It sounds like a plea bargain was reached and early release granted. The person has been convicted and...

I was pulled over and charged with a marked lanes violation and a ovi.

What to do about false OVI
Last night me and my boyfriend were driving home and a cop pulled us over [the same cop has pulled us over 4 times already for no reason!] He accused my boyfriend of "slurring his words", mind you it's 3 a.m. We were leaving a family bonfire. Well after he blew a 0.0% for the breathalyzer they said he smelled like marijuana. They arrested him and charged him with OVI, we go to court tomorrow. I don't know what to do. Cops seem to constantly harass us.
If he intends to fight the charge, he should enter a not guilty plea and consult with a criminal defense lawyer as soon...
