Unfortunately. once a complaint is made, there is no stopping police action. They will make an arrest. If you have not already signed a supporting deposition or other police work, and you still do not want to pursue charges, you do not have to cooperate with police and/or the DA's office in signing any paperwork which may help them prosecute him. Arrange for an attorney for him before he surrenders. Good Luck!See question

This is a misdemeanor charge so you must have an attorney. The next question is where the ticket is returnable meaning which court do you have to appear. There are defenses and plea bargaining options available to you. Consult with a local attorney about all your options. Prices vary from attorney to attorney. Shop around and good luck!See question
I attended arraignment for a Class A misdemeanor charge without representation and the judge set another court date and told me to Attend a stoplift program. I will complete the program and plan to pay the restitution before going to court again.
The final outcome depends on many factors. The specific facts of the case and your Criminal history among many things. An ACOD leading to an ultimate dismissal is probable in many cases. Having your own attorney can help. Good LuckSee question
At 11.14 am today- My Husband was miles from the approach to the Whitestone bridge NY- He was keeping up with heavy traffic, going 70, so the officer said. He slowed down towards the bridge along with many other cars, getting in line to pay toll. ...
Unfortunately, this is a common speed trap for the NYPD. Keeping up w/the traffic is not a defense. The signs are posted after each entrance ramp but there are other signs when the speed drops from 50 to 35.
The problem in NYC is that they do not negotiate tickets. They are all trials or pleas of guilty. A ticket of this nature must be fought as the points upon a plea of guilty or conviction after trial are 8 points. It is not easy to win but a plea is a guaranteed loss. Contact a good attorney to represent your husband. He doesn't need to be there for the trial. Good Luck!
The bac was .15, but it was not only first time dwi, but first time ever going through the justice system. Rear ended someone but they were fine. No one went to the hospital.

no one can predict exactly what will happen. A first arrest should not lead to jail or even necessarily a criminal record. if you cannot afford an attorney, bring proof of that to the next court date. If you can afford an attorney, you should consult w/a local attorney as soon as possible.See question
I did all the sobriety tests and passed each one.
You need to hire your own attorney to walk you through the entire system. I can tell you from a great deal of experience that .13 is the normal cutoff for potentially getting a lesser charge like DWAI. However, that position can change when issues with the case are pointed out to the prosecutor and/or the court. A vigorous defense is needed. Consult with a local attorney as soon as you can.See question

I agree than an ACOD can still be gotten. Having your own attorney is best if you or your family can make that happen. Good LuckSee question

You should be able to show up tomorrow and receive an ACOD. That would finish the matter, If you have a public defender, ask him if they can shorten the 6 months in light of the 20 year gap from incident to resolution. Good Luck!See question
