If a state trooper knows u have been drinking, should they ask u to get behind the wheel and drive...when u arent in the car
My son who is mentally disabled, had been drinking at a funeral. he was outside talking to people when a state trooper pulled up, whom he knows and they were just talking. Why did that trooper ask my son to get behind the wheel and drive 8miles.."to talk" whenhe knew he had been drinking, that could have been a fatality. Then arrested him, but said they would make the tickets disappear if he would wear a wire to do drug buys for them. Since he refused, they (law enforcement) has put us thru hell. Isnt this entrapment?? We dont know what to do, we cant afford a lawyer and the public defender is on their side.
Try contacting the State Police headquarters in Albany. As to speak with someone in Internal Affairs. 518-457-6811....

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.
Can aggravated DWI ever be reduced to DWAI in NY State?
Circumstances: officer followed me for speeding, then pulled me over when I briefly inched over the double yellow, approx 3:05 AM. I was no longer in a low speed zone when he pulled me over. I am on Adderall, and did not believe myself to be intoxicated, otherwise I would not have chosen to drive. At the station, the officer mentioned that he appreciated how respectful I was, and noted to the officer administering the breathalyzer that I was very remorseful. They claimed verbally that I blew a .20, but wrote on the paperwork that it was .12. They made this "mistake" twice. Told me if I show up to court I should be "fine." I've read conflicting information about whether I could get a plea bargain to DWAI in NY State. I have an otherwise clean record, excellent educational background, etc.
Can it? Yes of course. Will it? Unlikely. In some places absolutely not absent extraordinary circumstances. You've...
New York DMV DUI refusal hearing not rescheduled
I was arrested in August 2014 for DUI in Poughkeepsie, New York. A refusal hearing was held, but the cop did not show up, and my license was reinstated; I have paid no fines to the state, either court or DMV. It is now November 2015 and the DMV still has not rescheduled the refusal hearing. The criminal case is ongoing and is expected to go to trial in spring 2016. Will the DMV simply never reschedule the refusal hearing? Are they waiting for a disposition in the criminal case? I'd like to take advantage of the cop making statements at the refusal hearing and use these to impeach his credibility at trial. My license has remained valid the entire time, except two weeks immediately after the arrest.
The DMV moves at its own pace. Your attorney can follow-up and make sure nothing has been missed but there is no rhyme...
