My friend's car was impounded following at arrest for drunk driving in NYS but is likely to get the car back?
My friend was arrested for driving while intoxicated and blew a 0.09 at the precinct a little over a week ago. He was released the next day as it was his first offense. He was driving a friends car however and it is impounded in Nassau County. He went to the court once after the arrest and he cannot drive for 30 days and has to reappear in court in January. The owner of the car and the driver have to go get the car in about 2 weeks but apparently it is possible to have the car taken away. Is there a good chance for the car to be given back since it was not the drivers car?
There is a strong chance the car will be returned. There is a an innocent owner argument to be made on the owner's side....
My car has been impounded in Stony Brook univ. by university police for the evidence of DWI. How do I free the car?
I was caught on 4/25 in university campus for DWI (0.10), and on 6/09, my case has been adjourned for probation for a year with several conditions to follow (I have a conditional license now)(Case was sentenced in Central Islip). I asked my attorney for freeing the impounded car for the needs of driving . Which he did mention that in the court on June 9th, when I was sentenced for the probation.

After my license was revoked in 2007 i applied for a new one in Albany N.Y in 2013 and was denied. What are my options?
I was denied because i was considered to be a danger to the road. In 2007 i was in a fatal accident and was convicted of dui and criminal negligent homicide. I applied after 6 years and was turned down due to my past driving history which includes several tickets and a few more accidents. I was told that i could apply again next year and advised me that applying before that would not be recommended. I have not drove in over 6 years. Most of my past tickets where non-moving violations accept a red light and speeding.
I suggest that you contact Attorney Michael Palumbo in Mamaroneck, NY who regularly answers questions on Avvo.

I received a pink summons in fire island ocean beach ny. I was very intoxicated and acted very badly. I received a pink summons?
My pink summons says disorderly conduct and mentions I tried to push the police officer away from me. I'm worried about the possible consequences of this pink summons. The police told my fiancé at the time that I would have to pay a fine. I'm very sorry and ashamed of my behavior.
It is not a crime so you will not end up with a criminal record. The case will get sealed.
