Driving is society’s easiest and most convenient means of transportation and because there are a lot of drivers on the road, it’s always important to be as safe as possible. However, there is a very fine line that determines what is considered safe while operating a vehicle, especially when it comes to DWI-related charges and convictions. The laws for DWI on Long Island are very strict and the consequences can be life-altering without a proper defense. The repercussions associated with this kind of offense make it very easy to feel like you’ve made your bed and you have no other choice but to lie in it, but that’s not always the case. This is why it is crucial to bring your case to a DWI lawyer that can help you explore all of your options.

In New York, domestic violence is considered a serious crime, so much so that police are now required to make a mandatory arrest for any domestic violence call if they have probable cause to believe that violence has taken place. In these cases, an arrest will be made even if the accuser retracts their accusation. This is a good thing for vulnerable victims but it is unfortunate for someone who has been falsely accused.

Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, drugs (illegal or prescription), or a combination of these substances can have serious consequences in the state of New York. If you are arrested for operating a motor vehicle after having had too much to drink or after you took drugs, the specific criminal charges you will face depending largely on the level of intoxication. Most people don’t go out for the evening intending to drive under the influence, but sometimes “just one drink” leads to another, and then another … and then the next thing you know you’ve been pulled over by the police. Because one lapse in judgment can lead to an arrest with pretty severe consequences, it’s important to understand the differences between a “DWAI”, a “DWI”, and a “DUI” as well as to understand how a DWI lawyer can help.

Here in New York, moving violations result in points against your driving record. This is the state’s way of monitoring offenses and punishing drivers for violations. The number of points you earn for each violation is dependent on the severity and nature of the violation. Once a driver reaches 11 points in an 18-month time period, they will be penalized in fees, higher insurance rates, and, ultimately, a potential suspension of their driver’s license.

In the case of a DWI, however, the state of New York does not apply points against your driver’s license. The penalties from a DWI conviction are far more serious than points against your license. While it takes an accumulation of points over a period of time to get a license suspended due to moving violations, a DWI conviction can lead to an immediate suspension or revocation of your license in addition to a criminal record. Any moving violations charged at the time of the DWI will earn points in addition to these penalties. Consequently, if you have been charged with a DWI in New York, it is critical to get the help of a skilled New York DWI attorney to assist in your case as soon as possible.

We know that driving in New York state can be stressful especially since police on Long Island closely monitor traffic violations. Law enforcement is particularly strict when it comes to drunk driving, and the consequences of being convicted of a violation of DWI laws can be life-changing. If you are stopped on the road in NY at an intoxication checkpoint, it is important to know whether the officer had the right to set up the DWI checkpoint, to begin with, if the checkpoint was conducted legally, and what you can legally be compelled to do in this situation. If you have been stopped at a police checkpoint, questioned, and arrested for drunk driving, make sure you bring your case to a highly regarded New York DWI lawyer that can help you protect your rights.

In response to the dangers posed by people driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or both, police in New York are constantly on the lookout for drivers whose ability to operate their vehicles seems impaired. Prosecutors, spurred on by constant new reports involving people hurt or even killed by someone driving under the influence, aggressively pursue charges under the Vehicle & Traffic Law (“VTL”) against anyone accused of driving while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or a combination of the two. If you’ve been arrested and charged with DWI, DWAI, DWAI – Drugs, or any form of impaired driving in Suffolk County or Nassau County, protect your rights and contact Long Island DWI Attorney Jason Bassett.

Resisting arrest is a crime. That means that even if the arrest was for something that you did not do, merely resisting means that you can be charged with resisting arrest as a separate crime. Consequently, it’s never in someone’s best interests to resist an arrest or someone else’s arrest, no matter the circumstances.

What is Legally Considered Resisting Arrest?
Under New York Penal Law 205.30, you can be found guilty of resisting arrest if you intentionally prevent or attempt to prevent a police officer or peace officer from effecting an authorized arrest of yourself or of another person. Even when you did not commit the crime you are being arrested for, resisting arrest on its own is a crime in New York.

If you are facing resisting arrest charges in New York, it is critical to get the assistance of a skilled New York criminal defense attorney to help protect your rights.

How Are Domestic Violence Cases Handled In New York?

While domestic violence has long been a problem throughout the country, allegations of domestic violence have increased dramatically in part due to living conditions caused by COVID-19 lockdowns. Lawmakers and law enforcement alike have faced increased pressure to treat those charged with domestic violence swiftly and harshly. While domestic violence should always be treated seriously, in their zeal to prosecute, the legal system has also disrupted the lives of those who have been falsely accused of domestic violence. If you are facing charges of domestic violence in New York, the representation of a New York domestic violence lawyer is critical.

Facing criminal charges in New York is a serious matter where the stakes are incredibly high. In the courtroom, the government’s representative is a prosecutor. With the power to decide what to charge and what pleas to offer, it can seem like the prosecutor holds a criminal defendant’s very life in their hands. If convicted, a defendant can end serving a jail term, having to submit to probation or parole supervision, paying heavy fines, and suffering many other personal costs. Simply put, while a prosecutor’s job is supposed to be seeking justice, all too often overzealous prosecutors are only interested in getting a conviction and attempting to get the maximum sentence.

So what does the prosecutor do and how can an experienced criminal lawyer help a person facing criminal charges?

An Order of Protection limits or prevents contact when one person claims to feel threatened by another and when the court feels protection is warranted.

As part of a domestic violence incident and investigation, an Order of Protection may be ordered by the criminal court to keep the parties separate while the case is ongoing. When an individual feels harassed or intimidated by a partner, a former partner, or even a short-term intimate relationship partner, they may also be able to seek an order of protection through the family court system to keep that person away from them.

In either case, having an Order of Protection against you can have a significant impact on your life, both personally and professionally. If an Order of Protection has been brought against you, you may choose to fight it. Long Island criminal defense attorney Jason Bassett brings over 20 years of criminal law experience to the table, aggressively fighting for the rights of his clients who have been arrested, accused, or charged with domestic violence or an Order of Protection violation (also known as Criminal Contempt).
