    East Elmhurst: In "Boss stayed in UK after jail attack" , Reuven Blau and Denis Slattery erroneously reported that Department of Correction Commissioner Joe Ponte had not called a correction officer who was sexually assaulted by an inmate on Feb. 28. In fact, Ponte called the officer daily, and spoke to her via a Correction captain who is in charge of the commissioner's security detail, who was assigned to assist and be with her. Moreover, the department's CARE Unit swung into action, providing the officer with contacts for counseling and transportation to appointments.

Should I hire a DUI Lawyer or Stick with the public defender?

NY driver improvement unit revoked my license for 5 years. can I get a license in another state?
I have had two previous alcohol related charges in NY and mad a terrible mistake and received one in NJ.

I am appealing the decision; I received a letter from NJ saying I have to pay a restoration fee to have my driving privileges reinstated. My question is if my appeal in NY does not work out can I get a NJ license? Will my name come up in the national driver registry?
I believe the information is shared.
