    There does not appear to be any intent on your part to deprive the store of the money for the candy. You could either go back to the store and pay for the item or leave it alone and try to be more aware of the items you have when you check out next time. Good Luck- Carl Spector, Esq.

    In order to give the best advise as to the case it would be best to have your friend contact a criminal defense attorney in the county where the charges have been filed. The details of the case and the background of your friend (first offense) will be very important factors. It is best for your friend to discuss this matter with the attorney directly so that the attorney and your friend can try to agree as to the proper strategy, i.e., plea bargain, perhaps an ACD or a pretrial hearing and or...

    Depending on the depth of the background search and DMV search the DUI would appear on a full motor vehicle abstract search since those events do not disappear. Good luck, and perhaps you should inform them before it appears that you were trying to hide something.

    With regard to CT finding out about your NY conviction and what action it will take as a NY attorney I can not be sure. The NY law is that you must install an ignition interlock device on any car you own or operate whether you live in NY or not. However there is an employer exception. See below. NY VTL 1198 (8) states that If a person is required to operate a motor vehicle owned by said person's employer in the course and scope of his or her employment, the person may operate...

    A new arrest for a criminal charge is the intent of a violation of the ACD, not a traffic infraction.

    One of the conditions of the granting of an ACD is that for the period of the ACD the person remain arrest free. With a new arrest as you described the prosecutor can move to vacate the ACD and reopen the original case. This would force your daughter to restart the first case and fight it from the beginning.

    The court should appoint you a public defender to represent you if you can not afford an attorney. If you choose after speaking with your attorney you have the right to challenge the case and go to trial. If you were to be found not guilty then the case will be sealed as if it never happened. Another alternative is to plead not guilty and discuss with your attorney your rights as it they pertain to a disposition with regard to youthful offender status. Another alternative may be an ACD....

    While some cases can be resolved quickly, you do not always get the best result by doing so. The attorney you have representing you can contact the prosecutor to try to work out a resolution for the next date. There are many issues and facts that go into resolving cases so please communicate with your attorney to get your priorities conveyed. Good Luck-
