The Bronx Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Troiano who was charged with DUI in August of 2010 has decided to enter a guilty plea and forgo a trial in her case. The prosecutor was fired in January and does not want to put her family and friends through “the ordeal of a trial” according to the New York Post.
The former D.A. will have her license suspended for six months and have an ignition interlock device installed in her vehicle. She will also face heavy fines and the added expense for insurance that go along with a DUI conviction.
If you are facing DUI charges you should take the example of the former D.A. and enlist the help of an experienced New York DUI lawyer. An experienced DUI lawyer may be able to suppress or challenge evidence against you to bolster your defense. Your New York DUI attorney may even be able to find violations of police procedures in your case that can result in the charges against you being dismissed.
A DUI conviction can have a multitude of negative repercussions. If you want to minimize or eliminate the effect a DUI could have in your life you need to reach out to a New York DUI attorney as soon as possible following your arrest.
