Why Hire a DUI Attorney

DUI is a crime. The BAC levels in which a person is considered for DUI/DWI charges are:-

  • 21 years or older with a BAC over 0.08.
  • 21 years or older with a BAC over 0.04 driving a commercial vehicle.
  • Zero Tolerance Law for Minors (under 21) who drive with a 0.02 to 0.07 BAC.

You may refuse to take the breathalyzer test if you are willing to pay a fine of $1000, and face suspension of your driver’s licence for 18 months.

The chances of coming out of a DUI are low if you don’t hire a DUI lawyer. A DUI conviction can have lasting consequences, including the payment of $10,000 in fines and penalties, revoking your license, and you could spend up to 7 years in prison. Hiring a DUI lawyer is your best chance of minimizing the consequence from a DUI charge. The law can be inflexible, and that is why you need an attorney in Spring Valley, NY with experience.

New York court rules state sex offender law trumps municipal ordinances

The New York Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that state laws governing the residency restrictions for sex offenders take precedence over local municipal ordinances. In People v. Diack, the court ruled unanimously that the state’s regulations are sufficient in prohibiting high-level sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of places where children are likely to gather, such as parks and schools.
