    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....

    There are many reasons why a sentencing can be adjourned. One common reason is that the pre-sentence report might have not yet been finalized and turned over to the judge and the attorneys. Depending on the case, for instance, if it was a sentencing after a trial, there could be an adjournment granted if the prosecutor requested additional time to have a victim come to court to offer to the judge a victim impact statement. Keep in mind most of the reasons for a sentencing adjournment are not...

    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-

    With a first arrest for shoplifting the prosecutor is likely to offer you an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal (ACOD). This is not a guilty plea and you will not get a criminal record. You will not go to jail. You will be required to do an awareness class. You should be eligible for representation by legal aid. If you want to fight the charges your attorney can request a copy of the video however, if you are going to be offered the ACOD and accept it then you will not likely get...

    Failing or testing positive for alcohol through the ignition interlock device can result in a violation of your conditional discharge. If there is any chance of an error in the reading you should have the unit serviced to establish the error. Otherwise you should contact your attorney and discuss this matter with them. Good Luck-

    You should, with out question consult with and ultimately retain an attorney. It is very important that you are comfortable with the attorney that represents you. So seek out a few attorneys and find one that you can work with. As far a second DWI in New York. The new case is an indictable offense. You have a significant amount of rights that need to be protected. Good Luck- Carl Spector Note: For informational purposes only.
