When is Miranda read to Defendant for DWI? Once in Police Station, what's the applicable time period 4 breath test 2 be given?
12:40 a.m. I was pulled over, arrested for DWI; handcuffed and placed in2 cruiser. The breathalyzer didn't work at that police station so I was transported to another police station. In the room, the Officer began to fill out her paperwork - asking me questions which I answered. She THEN and ONLY THEN read me my Miranda Rights. Additionally, she did not administer the breath test for over 2 hours from the time I was pulled over. Didn't they wait too long to administer the breath test? Wouldn't the long time period change the reading? How can I be asked questions and reply to them without the Officer not advising me of my Miranda rights?
The whole "Miranda" thing is so over blown, over dramatized, and misunderstood. With a DWI arrest, the LEAST of your...
Writing an appeal letter to DMV in NJ.
Hello, I received a letter from DMV that i will be suspended for additional 60 days on top of my current suspension due to having 20 points.

My ex is about to receive his 3rd DUI, but it's been more than 10 years since his 2nd. Can I win primary custody of our son?
My ex has a criminal drug record, and is abusing our 5 year old son.Though I've tried,judge tomasello in Burlington county family court refused to believe my son.His father punched him in the eye and gave him a black eye.He is 5 years old.I left him when our son was just 3 weeks old because he was abusing me.I had primary custody. Even though my son told DCP&P, the police, and even the court clerk what happened,Judge tomasello gave him primary custody.It seemed like it was just because he didn't like me.(I couldn't tell you why).The judge refused to believe my word and my child's word.My son tells me he is hitting his current gf.My ex has been maliciously filing court motions for custody (almost 40 since my sons birth),false police reports,and false referrals with DCP&P against me.Police and DCP&P compliants were all dismissed.I was found guilty of nothing.What he has been doing to me is called Vexatious Litigation.He just got a 3rd DUI 13 years after his 2nd.I know they will treat it as a 2nd in sentencing due to 13 years time between the two.Do I have a good chance of regaining primary custody because of his 3rd DUI and the fact that he will lose his license for 2years?Pleasehelp

Will I be charged for DUI?
I made a poor decision and got behind the wheel after a few drinks. -and this is where it gets complicated- I woke up in an emergency room the next morning. I had been found passed out behind the wheel at a stop light. No accident occurred, I had just blacked out at a stop light. An ambulance was called and I was brought into the ER. I do not remember speaking to a police officer, nor was a police officer present at the hospital during my time there. My blood was drawn and alcohol was found. I was allowed to leave the hospital and pick up my car from the local police impound with no charge to retrieve it. I have not been contacted by any law enforcement agency, or hospital staff. Was I charged with DUI? Should I expect a summons?
It is not just possible, it is virtually certain in Atlantic City. However, a lawyer may be able to examine the...
