New York - At my first court appearance ( arraignment) can I request an adjournment of arraignment to get a public defender( since I can't afford a lawyer) ? . And if so do I make a plea in Not guilty to the charger at that appearance? Do I request adjournment before Judge reads charges? My 1st appearance in 3 days from now do I call court office clerk prior to my 1st court date and tell them? I need to understand court process - can someone help? Just trying to get answers - consulted with Lawyers just scared and want to know more details of process since I'm going to court alone for arraignment in 3 days can't secure lawyer - too expensive. I want to confer with Assistant DA but - maybe I should consult with public defender first - so How do I request this and ask to adjourn arraignment to get counsle-
You do not consult w/the DA or judge. When you get there, tell the court officer or clerk you don't have and cannot...
If on my first Court appearance for DWI in New York State-(1st time offence ever) I request Assigned counsel and get approved - You say judge generally arraigns defendant and enters a plea of not guilty automatically even with no counsel avaiable. does this mean I lose my license on first court appearance even if I'm requesting Assigned counsel? Will I need to find ride the minute I leave court?
The judge can suspend without an attorney OR he can adjourn a few days for you to get an attorney. They will generally...
Relevant details were the initial charge that I left the scene of an accident when I was stopped by the police. There was no accident and I subsequently refused the breathalizer test.
The laws regarding sealing differ from state to state. As I am not admitted in Florida, I researched this for you....
My friend received a driver license suspension notice in the mail. He went to Town Court to find out why. Apparently this is from 2001. He got a DWI, was on probation, failed to pay his fine, spent weekends in jail. They revoked his license back then. He got license back in 2005. Why was this not found back then? He would not have been let off probation without paying his fine. He has nothing to prove he paid it back then. Should he speak with a lawyer?
Greetings: There is no statute of limitations. Your friend should consider speaking with a lawyer. I would start...
The law had just changed on Jan-1,st five years ago, a dui with in ten years apart was considered a felny. I was just under the limt. I through away my copy of the arresting officer's hand written supporting deposisition .One of the officers asked me and the arresting officer for a copy of the dposn. The DA ;judge or my P D had a copy.After quite a while I felt I should not have,,, but I pled guilty. Things got confusion, I felt sure the most important thing in LAW was what was written onstone. My public defender was going to hand my case over to a ex DA who sed to me the deposision was very important . In between bad weather, a short three way conversation with ex DA and the investigator for the PD,I went before the Judge and pled guilty. one very GOOD thing of all this is four yrs sober
I don't understand a lot of what your are saying. A second dui within 10 of a dui conviction has been a felony for much...
This is my 2nd DWI in NY in 5 years and I am looking at a Class E felony. I already have had my license revoked and I am facing jail time. I blew a .28 which is aggravated, there is a witness testimony and video evidence and self admission. I know I am screwed and I know I have to face whatever charges I am brought to. I have had a great job for over 7 years. I've been attending college and I have been blessed to have been able to keep my job even though all of this is going on and my license is revoked. I have never had a felony in the past and I am in fear I will spend years in prison. I know if I go to trial I will lose given all the facts mentioned above. I am looking for an honest opinion and advice. I'd like a lawyer that actually cares for my future and not just my money.
You are probation eligible even if you plead to the felony. A lot depends on the attitude of the Judge and or the DA....
