Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. If my gf on several occasions demands to kill a person she is jealous of is that a crime in NY?
A: Probably not, but an attorney would have to know much more about the context, what was said, what was done, etc. before an accurate answer could be given. If you’re concerned, consult with a criminal defense attorney.
Q. Passed breathalyzer (of course,) failed field sobriety so officer charged me with dui based on that.
A: There could be multiple innocent causes for failure of field sobriety tests, and there are grounds to attack the police officer’s performance of these tests. If you were charged with a crime, I would highly recommend you consult with an attorney experienced in DWI defense so you can protect your rights.
