A NYPD officer gave me a ticket for "disobey park sign" section 1-03c2 of the park code. I was told I was in the park after hours, but it was before the default 1 am and signs by the entrance didn't further restrict my presence. Should I plea...
Do not plead guilty you will have a permanent record. Instead, hire a lawyer. This is something relatively easy to avoid a conviction on when you hire a lawyer..See question
Is there any legal provision that gives a certain grace period to drivers after they pass the first speed limit sign to adjust correctly to the speed? Say for example, if a speed limit goes from 65 mph to 55 mph, do the drivers have any time to ad...
Nope. No grace period.........................See question
I refused the breathalyzer and didn't admit to drinking. I got the dwai 5 years ago. I was also given tickets for driving erratically
With prior DWI / DWAI this is a huge problem. You could be facing a lifetime driver's license revocation of convicted. You need to beat this case in total have it thrown out. You also need to beat the refusal hearing. DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY WITHOUT REVIEWING ALL OF THE LAW AND THE REGULATIONS! You need to hire the very best DWI lawyer money can buy. If you want to ensure future driving privileges cost is not an issue. Find a lawyer that you trust and pay them whatever it is they need to defend you. Best of luck!See question
When filing divorce papers, I discovered an open warrant for not answering an appearance ticket for a charge of having an open container of alcohol in public (77 2b) going back to 1997. I was 19 at the time of the violation, and I must have lo...
Likely all you have to do is just stand there. It will probably be dismissed. But then again, maybe not. Maybe the people are trial ready. Maybe the cop isn't yet retired and wants some OT and is willing to come to court. If that happens then you will have to put you case on. To do this you will have to know how to conduct a trial such as preclude evidence, know how to cross examine, call your own witnesses, decide if you should testify on your own behalf, as well as make closing arguments and object to preserve errors on appeal. Inasmuch as you probably don't know how to do this it's best that you retain counsel to represent you. Of course, if all you have to do is stand there then the money you spent on a lawyer will be a total waste. The problem in our business though is that you never know whether or not you made a horrific mistake until it's too late.See question
About 3 months ago I received a ticket for possession of marijuana. I was let off in this case being that this has never happened before and I do not have a record. However if I am to receive another ticket for this, it will be brought back. Tod...
First off go get your car detailed so it doesn't smell like Cheeh & Chong's van. Second, stop smoking weed in your car. Third, stop carrying weed in your car. Fourth, start paying better attention to your driving. And fifth - and believe me this is the big one - the next time a cop asks you if you have weed on you KEEP YOUR BIG MOUTH SHUT!!!!!! I'm telling you, thank God your illegal activity is limited to just smoking dope. I think that if you ever robbed a bank you'd go to the nearest police station with the money, give it to the desk Sgt., tell him you just robbed a bank, and give a full written confession.
Look, you never ever ever have to talk to the police. EVER. When they ask you "what you have in the car," just say "officer, I know that you are doing your job but I don't answer questions. Am I free to go?" If they ask to search your car say "officer, I don't consent to searches."
Just stop carrying weed , drive better, clean that Gonge wreaking vehicle of yours, and for the love of God exercise your constitutional right to remain silent and keep the pie hole shut!See question
I was passing a tractor trailer in 55 mph zone that was going about 53, so in passing I reached speeds of 74 miles an hour for witch the police officer clocked me going at, I find this unfair and cruel. If you think so as well please let me know
It can be beat, but unless you know how to cross examine a cop on the radar and the visual estimation to undermine the case to create reasonable doubt you really don't stand a chance. That's why you should retain counsel to represent you.See question

Knowing that you were already given a break and can lose your financial aid, why would you risk it a second time? You have so much at stake that you need to pay for a top notch criminal defense lawyer. This is one of those just open the checkbook and write a blank check to the lawyer you believe can get this thing dismissed. Don't go cheap with this case you will regret it.See question

Call the cop and "see what he can do for you?" No. Look, the cops are not the "officer friendly's" you were told they were when you were a Cub Scout. They have their own agenda and have a job to do. They are not your buddies that you go chat it up with to make things disappear. In fact, this cop has NO DISCRETION on how to handle this case. Either him or a co-worker detective will in fact be applying for a warrant for your arrest once the blood test comes back showing that you were intoxicated. All you will be doing by calling and talking to the cops is give them more evidence.
So first off SHUT UP! STOP TALKING ABOUT THE CASE! DO NOT CALL THE POLICE! Second, don't walk but RUN to a CT criminal defense lawyer that specializes in DWI cases. You desperately need a lawyer to protect your interests. You damn near killed yourself, and could have killed others, driving around drunk and stupid. You were so wasted that you don't even know what caused you to lose control of your car.
In plain English, you are in deep $hit. You absolutely need a lawyer to prevent you from getting in more trouble, keep you out of jail, and protect your legal interests.See question
I crashed my car in May I went to the hospital by ambulance my bac was over the limit no One else involved in crash. I have not been arrested yet how long can they take to arrest me for dui
At this point they need an arrest warrant. If they call you call a lawyer. Your lawyer will have the police produce the arrest warrant. Only surrender having retained a lawyer and after you confirm they have a warrant for your arrest.See question
