Newark Law

In 1995 I was arrested for DWI in NJ. I moved to Florida 3 days later and never went to court. Is there still a warrant?
When I was arrested I explained to the cops that I was moving to Florida that weekend. When I got here I immediately got my Florida license and have had one ever since. I'm thinking of moving back to NJ and am wondering if there will still be a record of my case.
Get a copy of your abstract. It is almost certainly still there, and almost certainly with a warrant. But if the...
What should I do about these civil rights violations?
I was arrested on heroin distribution in 2015. The officers incident reports stated they received information I would be delivering heroin at a certain location. That they posted surveillance at the location and eventually saw me appear. That upon approaching me they saw a large bundle of heroin protruding from my pocket in "plain view". They arrested me, field tested the substance and it tested positive for heroin. 2 months later the prosecutors receive lab reports that the substance recovered was not heroin. A few days later prosecutors and the arresting officer during a grand jury hearing state that the substance was heroin and still indict me on the charges even after having exculpatory evidence. I didn't receive the lab reports until 4 months after being indicted. Upon discovering the substance wasn't heroin, which I was indicted on, my lawyer filed a motion to dismiss and it was granted. 4 months after that I get re-indicted because the substance recovered was fentanyl. Yet once again on the indictment I was over charged. I was indicted on an amount that wasn't in my possession and wasn't even documented. I believe that I'm being maliciously prosecuted.

Should my husband submit to a drug evaluation and assessment and drug test?
Okay so I'm on the methadone program completely compliant a bottle carrier no dirty urines during my pregnancy... Had my child and the hospital said that they had to call because it was protocol... They checked me out my prenatal care provider, my program, my other son School and pediatrician, and came out to the house and seen my home and interviewed my husband...

Can I sue for false arrest?
Here are the facts. My husband was driving in Newark, NJ in the middle of the night with no license(Yes, we are well aware that's not good at all but at the time, necessary). While he was driving, he was stopped by an officer. The officer claimed that, as he was driving, he threw a pack of 10 kilos of cocaine out of the window and ran because of it. He was thrown in jail for a while and interrogated frequently to confess to the cocaine thrown out of the window. There was no cocaine thrown. This was proven in the dash cam footage we presented as evidence. Now, they are trying to try him for anything from DUI to police evasion. But suddenly, the drug charges were dropped because the drugs disappeared. Probably because they know it never existed and had no case for it. My question is, do we have a case against Newark over the cocaine charges. That charge followed him for a while. The items he went into jail with also suddenly went missing along with the money he had in his pocket and clothing that I gifted him. His lawyer isn't great and when the charge disappeared, he said "don't go after it, just be happy its no longer your issue. " I think he's wrong. Anyone have any advice?
I would advise the same thing as your husband's attorney. Be happy that he is in the clear. Based on what you are...
Can a lawyer representing someone in a DUI be involved in removing them from their house via family law?
A friend of mine went to see a DUI attorney regarding a DUI they got and the attorney started talking about family law and having my friend removed when his father was complaining about his lifestyle even though he told the court during their arraignment this particular lawyer will represent him in the DUI case. He told me they asked him to leave the room at one point. I have suggested that my friend get his life together and go to AA but would this be conflict of interest?
If he's got a question let him ask it. You don't know what really happened in that room if you were not there. No, a...
My question has several layers involving probation for a DUI and Driver license suspension.
I'm currently on a three year probation with two year driver license suspension. My PO says she will request/ apply to get me off early but can only do so in October of this year. As regards the license suspension while I'm aware I can request early reinstatement I'm not keen on getting a drivers license for reasons I explain below. The other mitigating factor is that I am not an American citizen so immigration consequences come into play, especially since my wife withdrew the AOS application after our last interview in June of this year. My predicament is this, whether or not there is legal leeway that would allow me to appeal my immigration application to secure my legal status I'm weary of the process. Moreover its a costly endeavor seeing as its a legal process that will also involve other fees. My decision is to leave the country and start afresh in another country. Problem is I have already secured my visa to another country and would like to leave Oct. 18. Is there a way to speed up the early release from both the license suspension and probation as I would like to keep my October departure date and be able to do knowing any loose ends in the US are tied up?
You are not asking a complete question, because deportation depends on actual acts, and a DUI does not get you...
