    William’s Answer

    I would contact my a lawyer and try to have the court date continued so that you have additional time to satisfy the required obligations. Unless you want to end up with a criminal record, you should meet your obligations.

    Short answer is get a lawyer. This is not a run of the mill speeding ticket you're facing. You are being charged with the crime of Criminal Speed. At nearly 40 miles an hour over the legal speed limit, I would guess that you could be facing 48 - 72 hours of jail time. In my opinion, it would be a grave mistake to try and deal with the DA on your own. Get a lawyer and let him or her take care of this case.

  • Is it legal to draw blood befor the implied consent is read in a DWI investigation

    I was in a car accident and taken to the hospital with a minor injury at 19:15. The police report says that the cop waited outside my treatment area and filled out his paper work, he asked a nurse to draw my blood, I wasn't informed that it was a ...

    William’s Answer

    If the blood draw was performed at the behest of law enforcement, it sounds like an illegal search based on a violation of the 4th Amendment. Blood draws are mandated when an accident involving death or serious bodily injury occurs. However, that does not sound like an issue in your case. One thing to be aware of is that a nurse can perform a blood draw and turn the results over to law enforcement on her own accord. If it was not requested by the cop, then it is not a violation of the 4th Amendment. However, there may be some HIPAA issues. I hope you got a good lawyer.

    William’s Answer

    First of all you should never post any specifics about your case on a public forum such as this. Now, to answer your question, it MAY be a condition of your probation. It all depends on your criminal history, that of your friend and the specifics of the crime alleged. If your probation officer feels that your friend is a bad influence that could result in future criminal conduct, he may impose a no-contact provision. Bail and probation can impose no contact provisions. However, these can be modified later. You may be looking at a curfew depending on the specifics of the crime and your age. My suggestion is that you contact a lawyer. Pleading guilty right out of the gate is NOT in your best interests.
