I was convicted of Aggravated DWI in New York State. The judge ruled that I have the device for one year, but said that I could petition to have it removed after six months. Am I able to petition the court myself, or does my lawyer need to?

Whether you wish to hire an attorney to fight this is a personal decision that you need to make. In making that decision, understand that you are only charged with a traffic infraction, meaning even if you lose at trial you will not have been convicted of a crime that will give you a "criminal record" in New York State.See question

It is very common, especially in assault cases which I guess this is, for the DA not to make an offer at arraignments. One of the reasons is that often the extent of injuries may not be known at that point and typically the DA wants to investigate the facts relating to the incident. Your attorney should be reaching out to the DA and putting forth your side of the story and any exonerating evidence that you may have and begin negotiating with the DA ASAP.See question

"A friend of mine was arrested for Shoplifting at a Rite Aide. He was just released from a Mental Hospital yesterday. He was convicted of a felony 3 years ago. I don't know if there is anything I can do for him because the person who told me is le...
The first question is your friend still on any type of supervision based on their felony conviction of 3 years ago. If they are on probation, parole or post-release supervision, it will change how the DA handles the case. If your friend was given a court date to return in the future (desk appearance ticket) it does increase the chances that they will go home. If there is some sort of violation of supervision related to their prior felony conviction, it is much less likely.
Additional factors will include the value of the property alleged to have been taken, whether any violence is alleged to have occurred, their mental condition and their ties to the community. Short of hiring an attorney for your friend, there is little that you can do at this point. If your friend is assigned a public defender, you can speak to them and discuss any mitigating factors that you are aware of that may apply to your friend's case.
Best of luckSee question
No familial relationship with the stalker and he was NOT arrested for the stalking. How do you obtain order of protection in NYC if you filed several police report about his death threats ?
Your first action to be to follow up with the police. It is very unusual for the police to not take action on death threats. Perhaps speaking to a supervisor might help you get the action you seek. If an arrest is made a criminal court judge will issue an order of protection.
Depending on the relationship your alternative would be to apply through family court. This includes non-familial relationships that are intimate in nature.
Lastly, speaking directly to the DAs office is your last resort but they will also be very suspect of the police not wanting to make an arrest.See question
