Nassau County Criminal

By Kenneth S. Feraru, Esq. Question: After being pulled over for suspicion of driving while under the influence the officer’s observed me for a brief period of time.  I was given a bottle of water and thereafter almost threw up.  Actually, I threw up a little.  The officer insisted I blow into the breathalyzer, and after allowing it to proceed the reading came up to .18.  I have been suffering from GERD and heartburn my whole life. I understand that the prosecutor can use the slope to dismiss my defense. Do I have a chance? Answer: Yes, vomiting, GERD and other occurrences will affect the breath test

By Kenneth S. Feraru, Esq. It should come as no surprise to any licensed driver in the State of New York that New York Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 319 requires those owning or operating a motor vehicle to have a minimum amount of liability insurance for personal injury, death or property damage caused by the negligence of the owner or operator of that motor vehicle. I'm sure we can all agree that this is a good law, as it provides for compensation to those who have sustained damages, and affords protection to the owner and operator of the vehicle
