Why would a DWI case be adjourned 6 times?
The defendant was charged with VTL 1192.2 02 and VTL 1192.3 03 in March of 2016 and the case has been adjourned 6 times, either specifically by the defense or "Case Continued." What would be the reasoning for this many adjournments?
Without more information it would be difficult to say. While many of my misdemeanor first time DWI cases from the...

Underage possession of alcohol in trunk?
I am 18 years old and got pulled over for speeding in upstate NY earlier this week. The police searched my car because of suspicion when they found a marijuana pipe, and when they searched my trunk they found two almost empty bottles of liquor that have been sitting there for months on end. They gave me a court appearance for it and stated I violated the penalty of 65-c. I did research and found out that this law includes "with intent to consume". What exactly does that mean? Would the alcohol being in my trunk be able to fight that since it wasn't actually intended to consume and out of reach?
In my opinion intent to consume can be inferred from the fact that the bottles were found in your car almost empty. But,...
Is it possible to get my aggravated DWI case dismissed?
I was arrested for an aggravated DWI on halloween 2015, the sheriff arrested me and i was released and got a lawyer. The sheriff's department lost my paperwork that says that the breathalyzer was working correctly, and also there were some mistakes on my arrest report. My lawyer gave the sheriff's department 6 months to find my paperwork, which they didn't. After going to court dates every month for 6 months with nothing happening, they are finally negotiating a deal. My lawyer has been pushing me to get evaluated by TASC and is trying to work out a deal where I do TASC and they charge me with a violation instead of a misdemeanor. I don't really trust my lawyer and feel he is much too eager to help the DA and send me to TASC rather than get me the best deal. Is it possible this case could've been/can be dismissed? Or should I listen to my lawyer and go to TASC? He told me to make an appointment for evaluation with TASC and let him know when it was, that was 2 months ago and I haven't done it cause i want a second opinion, but also need to get this over with because it has been almost 9 months and i haven't even been sentenced yet. He hasn't even contacted me in months.
You should listen to your attorney. He has no interest in helping the DA. You are his client. A violation instead...
Can I get my dwi charges dropped to a reduced offense?
I was pulled over and was arrested after the officer did a sobriety test because he said my eyes were red (I was crying because I had broken up with my boyfriend when I got pulled over) he also did the breathalyzer four times and came up with the number 0.14 is there any way I can plea to a reduced offense other than a dwi, I have a clean record, there was no one else in the car, no car accident and I was coming from my friend's house, my last drink was at 10 pm and I got pulled over at 1 AM
In Suffolk County, blowing a .14 - the question isn't whether or not you've lost your license, the question is whether...
