Do I need to hire a lawyer for a DUI? Or is it ok to go with a public defender?
I got a DWI and blew a .14 last week at a State Police check point in Port Chester, NY. Although I've done a lot of research I cannot seem to justify the $3-5K for a lawyer when my case seems pretty cut and dry. I've been told I can most likely plea down to a DWAI and take the necessary classes. Can a private lawyer really do a great deal more than a public defender? Thanks!!
Simply put, no case is the same as another. There are too many variables from the individual facts of the case to the...
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.
First offense, upm and dui. Please help.
Got pulled over by state troopers, they saw weed in my back seat (small amount) and they searched my car (no consent to that). Asked me to get out of the car and I ended up performing a sobriety test (without consent as well or even being asked). They told me I failed even though I was sober! And they arrested me, took me to the hospital to get blood taken( I agreed cause I was sober) and then took me to the station to get processed. What do I do? This is my first offense.
I suggest that you hire a good criminal defense lawyer.
What happens when I plea guilty to disobeying a Do Not Enter sign , not intoxicated just a mistake wasn't from the area.
The police officer was driving towards me when I drove into the street noticing it was a do not enter after I had crossed the sign!!
Sounds like it's infraction.. which means you'll get a fine.
Can a bartender serve minors alcoholic beverages at a party in a private residence with the home owner’s permission?
I was asked to tend bar at a private party in someone’s home. The home owner said I could serve the minors in attendance alcoholic beverages. If I do and one of the minors gets drunk or hurt am I personally liable?
Homeowners can't give you permission to break the law.
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...
