DWAI-drug NY State
I got pulled over the beginning of January because I didn't have my headlights on and the car smelled like marijuana. Got arrested for DWAI-drugs, taken to get blood drawn, the usual. Yesterday, I got a call saying I had to go to the police station the next day (today) at 10 pm so I could get a mugshot, fingerprints, and tickets because my blood test came back positive blah blah blah. A friend of mine's brother is a sheriff and told me 2 months ago that if I didn't get any tickets the night of the incident then I was scott-free. I can NOT afford a lawyer but something about this doesn't seem right, what is going to happen when I go to the station tonight?

Can a statement taken from a victim be dismissed in a court, if the victim was intoxicated at the time of giving the statement?
In a domestic violence situation, the victim was intoxicated for many days prior to the "incident" and there after.. can the statement she gave police be dismissed? And if so, how can we use it against her in a court of law?
Was the statement false? Intoxication can ruin the credibility of the witness in court but it's hardly illegal.

Can you lose custody of kids if you get a felony dwi
My brother has custody of his two kids. He was arrested for DWI this past weekend and given a blood test two hours after arrest, no breathalyser given. Can he lose custody? He is considering installing one of those breathalyser mechanisms in his car before the court date to show the judge he's taking it seriously. Will this help him? He lives in New York State. Thanks for any advice!
One would hope that one Dwi arrest would not change custody status. If the is an action the court will look at multiple...
