Westport Law

Court date is May 25th in Indiana and my son, who was with fraternity brothers sleeping in a tent, when Indiana police raided the campsite. He, along with 3 dozen other students, was arrested, after police did breathalizers on all of them. Is there a way to handle court date and charges without having to go to Indiana which would be very costly? Also, this is his first offense and is there a way to have offense expunged from his record? Thanks a lot.

I have gone and completed alcohol rehab ,MADD, and 100 hours of community service .I need to return to SC as I cannot find affordable housing in Stamford and other areas of CT. I live alone and want to be freed of the IID device on my car .What are my chances of early termination?
Probably would depend on how long your probation period is and how close you are to the end of that period.
My attorney immediately requested it or subpoena it and was told it was accidentally destroyed and is not available. Is that grounds for a motion to dismiss in Connecticut? Thanks

I am a resident of CT and have a CT driver's licence . Got a DUI in the state of Louisiana ( first offense ever , BAC of .12 ) in 2013. Refused breathalyzer test but later accepted giving Blood sample for chemical test. Pleaded no contest => paid court fees + completed community service hours + took required classes => got "motion of termination of probation " from LA court and a letter from NOLA DMV that my license ( driving privilege in LA ) has been reinstated. My attorney in NOLA is working on expungement of the record and expects to obtain such court decision by end of Sep 2014 ( note this is expected to seal the dui records). CT DMV has learnt about the DUI from NOLA DMV through ( Interstate Driver's License Compact).
Were you court-ordered to install the IID? Has Connecticut rescinded your driving privilege or suspended your license?...
I was pulled over for crossing the center line of a street. I was asked for my license and registration which I provided. I was asked if I had been drinking that evening because the officer said he smelled alcohol. I said there were people in my car before that I had dropped off that were drinking. He asked where I was coming from and if I had been drinking. I said "I respectfully decline to answer any questions". I started my cell phone video and asked if I was being detained and asked If could be on my way. He asked me to step out of the car and I then respectfully declined to perform any sobriety test. He placed me in handcuffs on suspicion of dui and asked if I would take a breathalyzer. i declined and then again at the station. I was told my license will be revoked. Do I have a case?
Connecticut law requires you to take a breath, blood, or urine test if you are arrested for a DUI. Connecticut’s “...

New York cannot suspend your ability to drive in other states. It can only suspend your privilege to drive in New York....
