    State police have completed their investigation into the September fatal police shooting of a Clarkson grad student in which another Clarkson pupil was also killed. "The last I heard, and this was back in November or December, it had been passed to the DA from state police and it was going to go to grand jury and I haven't heard anything about it since," Bates said.

    From Europe to Africa, people around the world are marching in solidarity for America's grassroots campaign for racial justice and against excessive use of force by police, following the officer-involved shootings of two black men last week whose final moments were captured in shocking video footage that went viral online. Alton Sterling, 37, was shot and killed by white police officers while being held on the ground outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 5. A day later, 32-year-old Philando Castile was fatally shot by a police officer during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

I was pulled over for beeping my horn on a very congested street 6 months ago and got a dwi. my attorney said this isnt PCause.
i was pulled over 6 months ago for beeping my horn on a very congested street at 11:00 p.m.. the police pulled me over in my friend's driveway and gave me a dwi. he pulled me over for beeping my horn, which my lawyer said is not probable cause because vehicle and traffic law states anyone driving on the road has the right to sound horn when necessary if there are obstacles on or about the road. the police statement says i was not driving recklessly or swerving, simply beeping my horn. i have a probable cause hearing finally, 6 months later, this friday....

Dui - false conviction
I was arrested in the US by the tribal police for a misdemeanour of supposedly being under the influence of drugs. I passed the breathalyser, I didn't do great on the field test (walking in a straight line thing) because I am a truck driver and I am tired but it was obviously not on drugs. They pulled me over because I was in the middle Lane late at night avoiding livestock on the side during a storm. The cop took me to the hospital for a drug test and the results will be back in 3-6 mths. When will the actual trial be, when the results arrive. Will I be allowed to drive in NY at least until I am found innocent? Will I be arrested after the first appearance? Do I need a lawyer as this is a huge misunderstanding. Not to mention the cop didn't allow me to go to the washroom for 6 hours...

How long should it take to be arraigned for DWI if it is the second charge?
If one is awaiting sentencing for a DWI, gets a second DWI and is taken to the county where the first DWI occurred on a bench warrant and jailed, sentenced for the first charge and remained jailed. How long should it take to be arraigned on the second charge? I thought it was within 48 hours not 10 days shy of six months.
Usually, the arraignment on the local county charge comes before a person is returned to another county on a bench...
If one is arrested for DWI and released on bail awaiting sentencing are they on probation?
The Judge released him and his sentence was going to be 5 years probation, he had a interview with the probation office for back ground check. The probation office was in the process of making a decision and he was arrested for a second DWI and taken to jail. He was never on probation, I believe. He was sentenced 9 months later for the second charge and denied parole because the court said he got his second DWI while on probation.
You are not on probation until sentenced to probation by the judge. However, I would speak with his attorney to...
