If you've been arrested for it none of that matters, "they" know. Friend of mine got popped for CUI and it appeared in the police log or some shit in the paper pretty quickly.What I was NOT told about PTP was after you accept 'the deal' your name gets published in the papers along with the charges. Getting charged under the Remy Law is like being a 'snackbar' rendered to a black house in Eygpt, done in secret, you one day just disappear. Eff that
I'm not married... The shite has gone awayRemy? You are sooooooooo screwed. Any victory you get is good, but you are sooooooo screwed. Remy, Lautenberg, yes or no have you stopped beating your wife..... that shit never goes away
So you ended up with a dismissal, which is exactly what you would have had with the PTP.Well the fat lady has sung: After 20 months of fighting and I got my day in court. Finally I got face with my accuser in a court of law. I overheard the DA uttering the words the "witness is dispositive". WTF is Dispostive ? It sounded like good anyways.
Also I heard of 'there are 5th Amendment problems', "are you invoking the martial privilege" ? A lawyer was appointed and the attorney explained to her what that meant, I guess her hearing the words purger and prosecuted in the same sentence did it. The judge brought her back into the courtroom and made her announce her decision to invoke the 5th ton the whole court, I loved it.
The Commonwealth could not proceed, since there was no evidence, Judge dismisses both charges. Beating the 'Remy law' fairly is no mean feat. The deck is stacked against you and they don't care much about your rights.
I learned quite a bit during this ordeal
Well it's not the same IMHO If I took the easy way out, a plea, my name gets published in paper along with the charges and I'm on a leash for a period of time. As far as I can see I managed to accomplish the mission and win a complete vindication. It don't get betterSo you ended up with a dismissal, which is exactly what you would have had with the PTP.
