Legal Answers
Q. First offense DWI. First offense, no accident 1192.2 and 1192.3 and 1128a. Returned Dl. What to expect in court?
A: A first offense DWI with no aggravating factors may be able to be reduced to a DWAI violation, but it will depend on the BAC. The Westchester DA's office is very specific about how they handle different BAC readings. You should hire an attorney, so that can try to get the paperwork from the court, and find out the specifics. My office is located in White Plains, and has represented hundreds of people charged with DWI around Westchester County. Michael Litman 917-554-8231
Q. Is Is leaving a well lightedd area and turning your headlights on halfway across the street grounds for a DUI rest
A: Operating without headlights on at night might be grounds to pull someone over, but that alone isn't the basis for an arrest. There would need to be evidence of impairment or intoxication to give an officer probable cause for arrest on a DUI charge.
Q. Hello, can a new criminal case be transferred from puerto rico to new york if all parties live in new . york.
A: The court that has jurisdiction to hear a criminal case is the court in the county/city/town that the alleged crime occurred in. So if the crime occurred in Puerto Rico, it could not be transferred to somewhere outside Puerto Rico.
