SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

May 2017 Archives

Should you consider filing an appeal to your conviction?

In the United States, everyone should receive fair treatment by law enforcement and a swift trial by a impartial jury of their peers. Sadly, the reality of the criminal justice system often falls quite short of this ideal. It's all too common for people to end up in prison because law enforcement profiled them during a stop, only to get convicted of a minor infraction.

Audit: NYC's bail system is expensive and discriminatory

Almost two years ago, Kalief Browder killed himself after having spent three years in solitary confinement awaiting trial for a misdemeanor. His suicide drew attention to the problem of young offenders -- usually Black or Hispanic -- being held in jail for indeterminate periods even though their charges are minor. Mayor Bill de Blasio was inspired by the story to call for reform.

Were you accused of growing marijuana in your basement?

Marijuana laws are changing rapidly throughout the United States. In some states, certain individuals are permitted to grow their own personal supply of marijuana plants, but not in New York. Unless you're one of the 10,000-plus patients approved to use medical marijuana in our state, the drug is off-limits.

NY high court upholds permanent license suspension for repeat DWI

In 2012, the Cuomo Administration issued regulations allowing the DMV commissioner to permanently deny driver's licenses for those convicted of repeat drunk driving. Several people who had run afoul of those regulations filed suit, and the New York Court of Appeals has just upheld the regulations.

Could debit cards limit crime?

It is a common notion that most street crime in New York City is driven by cash…or at least the need for it. Unlike other objects of wealth, such as cell phones, mp3 players or jewelry, cash can easily be hidden by being spent quickly on other things, including illegal items. The need for cash, or at least the prospect of quickly obtaining it, also makes vulnerable people easy marks for robberies.

Crisis incident crisis: 99% of handcuffed students are minorities

If you're concerned that New York City maintains essentially a school-to-prison pipeline, you'll be alarmed by these numbers on how our kids are treated by police in school. These are statistics required by 2015 amendments to the city's Student Safety Act which were published by the New York Civil Liberties Union.

Is there pressure to produce ID to police?

When you’re stopped by the police in New York City, it is common knowledge that law enforcement can ask you for your license and proof of insurance. Drivers are required to have them and show them to a police officer when asked to do so. But what are your responsibilities in producing identification when you are a passenger?
