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) ? .

I had a DUI arrest in Florida but the charge was dropped to a reckless. First offense. Can I get it sealed?
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...
my bf was charged with a misdemeanor in 2007 (for drunk driving). now at 27 years old, he was recently caught drunk driving and was arrested. he didn't yield at a sign, so the cops pulled him over. he refused a BAC test. he was nonviolent with the cops the first or second time. we don't know what is going to happen yet, since this incident occurred 3 days ago. the first misdemeanor was in ct, and his 2nd offense (i don't know what it should be labeled yet) was in upstate ny. besides his first misdemeanor, his record is clean. would he face any jail time and/or be convicted of a felony? thanks.
There is not enough information for an accurate answer. Even though jail is possible, it is not definite. The attorney...
I was arrested for DWI in 2004. The case was disposed of in 2006, and I plead to DWAI? I'm applying for a position in a state which does a seven year criminal conviction check based on the salary I am making. However, they are a government agency that could go back father if they want. I know that this shouldn't show up either way, but will a DWAI show up as a criminal conviction record check?
Very possible. depending on the thoroughness of the search.
