25 Questions Answered

Q. Can I sue my brother in law for assaulting me( about 12 years ago plus).
A: Short answer is no. Like many states, New York’s law sets time limits for a host of specific crimes. For crimes not specifically listed in the statute, a general statute of limitations applies based on the category of the crime. The general time limits are: five years for felony offenses two years for misdemeanors, and one year for petty offenses. Below are examples of time limits for specific crimes in New York. Keep in mind that the following is a partial list that broadly summarizes the law. You should look at the actual law for nuances, exceptions, and legislative changes—and know that court rulings can affect the interpretation of the law. (N.Y. Crim. Proc. Law 30.10 (2019).) Crimes like murder and rape have much longer statute of limitations
Q. Passed breathalyzer (of course,) failed field sobriety so officer charged me with dui based on that.
A: Not sure the question but the officer could suspect another substance as a reason for the charge. DWAI May Be a Less Serious Charge, but It Is Still a Violation. In New York State, DWAI or Driving While Ability is Impaired tends to carry less severe penalties than a DWI or an Aggravated DWI conviction. A conviction to a DWAI is not a criminal conviction but instead a traffic violation. If you have been charged with a DWAI in New York, you need an experienced New York DWAI Lawyer represent you to protect your driving record and secure your future from a DWAI violation. Because DWAI Is a Violation, There Are Substantial Consequences. Driving While Impaired by a Drug (DWAI-Drug) fines range from $500 to $1,000, the maximum jail time is 1 year, and there will be a driver’s license suspension for at least six months. Additional penalties apply to second and third DWAI convictions. Although the penalties are less severe than a DWI, they can have a negative impact, such as markedly higher insurance rates and could impact your job or future employment opportunities.
Q. My little brother got caught on some drug charges I have a name of someone who is responsible for a death in 2016 can I
A: Proceed with caution and with a defense attorney bc if you were a witness to a crime and didnt come forward, they may think you were acting in concert or part of the crime.
