If I cannot afford a lawyer and I am charged with a dwi should I plead guilty or not guilty at my arraignment?
I am asking because I do not get a lawyer until the arraignment and would like to have some sort of "bargaining power" when it comes to my sentencing. Also, what am I looking at in terms of "punishment" and is it possible to avoid losing my license? I have a previous dwai and both offenses occurred in westchester county.
If you are indigent the court will assign you a public defender.
Conditional license from DMV?
I was recently convicted of DWAI in New York. I also attended a hearing at the DMV because I refused to take the breathalyzer when I was arrested.

If an officer fails to issue you a DUI after admitting to being high while driving do i have a claim against him.
I was pulled over for alleged speeding and was smoking while driving. I admitted to the officer that I was under the influence but was unaware of my speeding. He only issued me a speeding ticket and told me how lucky i was that he was nice. I feel that cops in each state must follow that state's standards because the law shouldn't be based off the luck of which officer i am dealing with. If i plea not guilty to my speeding ticket and this officer shows up in court do i have any legal basis to create a counter claim against a cop who doesn't have the best interest of the law at heart.
