If an officer fails to issue you a DUI after admitting to being high while driving do i have a claim against him.
I was pulled over for alleged speeding and was smoking while driving. I admitted to the officer that I was under the influence but was unaware of my speeding. He only issued me a speeding ticket and told me how lucky i was that he was nice. I feel that cops in each state must follow that state's standards because the law shouldn't be based off the luck of which officer i am dealing with. If i plea not guilty to my speeding ticket and this officer shows up in court do i have any legal basis to create a counter claim against a cop who doesn't have the best interest of the law at heart.
Seriously? You want to punish a cop for giving you a break? Would you be happier to sit in jail? NO YOU HAVE...

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.

My husband is currently in jail for probation violation and DUI running concurrentlY. I am confused because on Monday he is being sentenced for his DUI and they are trying to get him time served.

What state DMVs will a NY DWAI - drug conviction be reported to?
A few months ago I pled guilty to a DWAI drugs in NY. I was a CT resident and licensed in CT @ the time. I just moved to FL. Ironically the same day I arrived here, a letter from the CT DMV was sent to my CT address advising me that my CT driving privileges will be suspended in a couple of wks. If I were to obtain a FL license and no longer hold a CT license, will my FL license eventually be suspended? ALSO, should I have to have an interlock device installed in my car for the CT DMV if it was a drug conviction and no alcohol was involved?
You may want to re-post this question in the Florida DUI forum. I am not a Florida Attorney but I believe Florida is...
