    You should consider getting an attorney to contact the collection agency on your behalf to read and advise you regarding the civil demand. Next, while you could have a public attorney represent you in the criminal court, you should consider having a consultation with a private attorney to help you decide if you would be better off fighting the case.

    This is a very good question. You must go into the interview with the correct attitude. First and foremost, tell the truth. Be sincere and honest. The easiest way to handle these interviews is to answer the questions as honestly as possible. Do not ramble and get off topic. Simply answer the questions and be prompt and polite. PTI is a great opportunity to get your case resolved with out getting a criminal record. Take is seriously.

    You would have a right to file a motion and to get a hearing before a judge. This hearing would determine if the officer had the right to pull over your vehicle. The officer would be subject to cross examination by you or your attorney. This can be a very powerful tool to try to get your case dismissed. You would have the right but not the obligation to testify at the hearing. Clearly, you could attempt to introduce into evidence photos of the location to impeach (show to the judge that the...

    Take some time and consult with a few attorneys that do a good number of DUI cases each year. Once you have met with the attorneys, hire the one that you feel has the best grasp of your case. The facts as you have presented them raise quite a few issues. Make sure you have an attorney that will take the time to explore all of those issues. Good Luck- Carl Spector

    This is a very good question, one that comes up quite often. The answer is very "fact specific". Meaning where was the marijuana recovered from and who was in possession and whether you and your codefendats were in a motor vehicle or not. Consult with an attorney. Good Luck- Carl Spector

    The prosecutor has the discretion as to whether or not they will offer a plea to a lesser charge in a DWI case. The prosecutor can, if they think it is appropriate offer for example an plea to driving while ability impaired (a traffic infraction) from a DWI charge. Good Luck- Carl Spector

    In order for you to be granted an ACD the prosecutor would have to offer it and the judge would have to go along with it. There are no formal requirements, however if you had an ACD in the past you probably will not get another one. The best approach would be to provide some facts to your attorney about your background that is positive that he or she can present to the prosecutor to demonstrate why you deserve such lenient treatment.

    Penal Law section 120.00 Assault in the Third Degree is a class A misdemeanor which carries a maximum jail sentence of one year. I can not tell you what is going to happen, but I can offer to you some suggestions. Consult with and retain an experienced and seasoned attorney, preferably one that has also been a former prosecutor to represent you. This way you can have a defense strategy in place well before your next court date.

    Certainly you should plead not guilty and hire an attorney that can represent you that understands the defense of DWI cases. You have a lot of interesting issues in your case and you need an attorney that appreciates those issues. Good Luck- Note: For informational purposes only.

    The Criminal Procedure Law of New York sets forth the strict rules that apply to the timing of preliminary hearings and grand jury presentations. In many cases the defense attorney will agree to set the preliminary hearing for a date after the law requires, which is perfectly appropriate if it is done for the benefit of the client. If the hearing or grand jury presentation is not otherwise done in a timely manner that the defendant can be released unless there is some other good cause that a...
