what is the process for having a past criminal charge dismissed?

Question by W G: what is the process for having a past criminal charge dismissed?
If anyone is a lawyer pleas tell me the motions I need to file to open these cases back up so that I can have them dismissed because they are not even true.
These charges took place in Tampa, Fl. I plead out on them because I needed my freedom for my children.

Best answer:

Answer by Thomas T
You are going to need to talk with a lawyer. Generally past criminal charges can not be dismissed if they resulted in a conviction. If the conviction was in error, you can petition for a new trial based on newly discovered evidence that was not available to you at the time of the prior trial. You can ask the local lawyer about whether the offense can be annulled or expunged. This may not be possible in some jurisdictions. If the charges are simply “charges” which were not adjudicated, there would be a lot of questions your lawyer will need answered including “where were you when this was going on?” But if there were, in fact, convictions, then you have a very difficult, some would say impossible, task of reopening the case and reversing the conviction.

Attorney Jesse Scharff, of Roberts Law Group, PLLC, Raises Reasonable Doubt as to Impairment, Secures Not Guilty Verdict on DWI Charge

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) January 01, 2013

North Carolina drunk driving defense attorney Jesse Scharff of Roberts Law Group, PLLC, successfully raised a reasonable doubt as to impairment in a DWI trial and secured a not guilty verdict, saving the client from up to six months in jail.

A traffic stop of an allegedly speeding driver headed home after a sporting event ended in an arrest for driving while impaired (DWI). The arresting officer performed several field sobriety tests after smelling the odor of alcohol on the driver, including the walk-and-turn test, a portable breath test and the Vertical Gaze Nystagmus.

According to court documents, despite the results of the barrage of field sobriety tests Attorney Jesse Scharff was able to raise reasonable doubt about whether or not the driver was impaired, resulting in a not guilty verdict. The driver missed walking heel to toe only once during the walk and turn test, had a positive reading on the portable breath test, satisfied all six clues on the Vertical Gaze Nystagmus test and had a presumptive blow of .08 on the EC/IR II (or ECIR-2).

In the face of this seemingly insurmountable evidence, Jesse Scharff was able to use his experience in the courtroom and knowledge of North Carolina law to secure a not guilty verdict. In State v. Narron, 193 N.C. App. 76 (2008), the court discussed that the[r]esults of a chemical analysis are sufficient evidence to submit the issue of a defendants alcohol concentration to the fact-finder who may find it adequate proof of impairment. In this case, Attorney Scharff was able to refute the results of the field sobriety tests, raising reasonable doubt as to impairment and allowing the fact-finder to enter a not guilty verdict.

Rather than spend the next six months in jail, the driver was able to escape the penalties of a North Carolina DWI conviction.

What are the steps for a DUI charge?

Question by Rick: What are the steps for a DUI charge?
I am curious of the steps for a DUI charge. Do you have to be pulled over and tested in order for the DUI charge to be valid? Tests include blood testing or breathalyzer.

Can someone be prosecuted for a DUI other than being pulled over and tested? As in being seen leaving a bar? I know there are procedures in law where fact of a incident happening needs to be recorded properly.

Experienced Wallin & Klarich Criminal Defense Attorney, Andrei Lapine, Helps Client Get Two DUI Charges and Charge of Resisting Arrest Completely Dismissed

Riverside, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013

A Wallin & Klarich client recently had two charges of driving under the influence and one charge of resisting arrest completely dismissed. The client was represented by Riverside criminal defense attorney Andrei Lapine of Wallin & Klarich, who successfully proved police misconduct during the clients arrest.

This case is a classic example of the good things that can happen for clients when you take the time to file the appropriate motions in the case. At the end of the day the entire case was dismissed and the client could not be happier, said Mr. Lapine.

According to Riverside Superior Court-Southwest District record, the incident began one night when the client was driving home and found police in the driveway of his neighbors house on another call. The police allegedly saw the clients car approaching at a high rate of speed and watched as the client sped into his driveway with his tires screeching to a halt. The police officers claimed that they then watched the client stagger out his car and stumble to the front door of his house. After the client was in the house, one of the police officers knocked on his front door. The client answered the door but refused to come outside at the officers request. The client tried to shut the door to his own home but the officer stuck his foot inside the door and prevented the client from doing so. The client then got into a struggle with the officer, and a second officer then stepped in and used a taser gun on the client.

Subsequently, the client was arrested and charged with two counts of driving under the influence pursuant to California Vehicle Code section 23152 and one count of resisting arrest pursuant to California Penal Code section 148(a). If convicted, the client faced a sentence of 18 months in the county jail.

The client quickly sought the assistance of Riverside criminal defense lawyer Andrei Lapine to fight against the charges as stated by Wallin & Klarich. After discussing the case with the client and investigating the circumstances, Mr. Lapine filed a Motion to Suppress and a Motion to Dismiss relating to the charges against the client. Mr. Lapine successfully showed that the police had acted unlawfully during the clients arrest. In addition, Mr. Lapine showed that the District Attorney had let the statute of limitations on the case run. The District Attorney ultimately submitted to Mr. Lapines motion and as a result the client had all charges dismissed.
