I was watchin court tv, and I have a question for police officers and criminal lawyers?

Question by SuperGirls™: I was watchin court tv, and I have a question for police officers and criminal lawyers?
In the episode a 10year old boy accuses his cousin of molesting him while he lived back in NY, his family moves to FL 2years prior to him, and his family going to the police. He does not tell the parents until 2 years after it “happened”.
In the whole ordeal, the parents of the cousin are saying that what he’s sayin its impossible because his cousin has epilepsy and due to that, they were never alone. The epileptic kid was always being supervised by adults, specially when others were visiting.
anyhow my question to you officers and people with law knowledge is..Can you have a case when so much time has passed by, and you have no evidence, and all the witnesses believe the accuser is lying?
As I watched the show, I felt bad for the epileptic kid, I honestly believed the accuser was lying. The officer asked the accuser if he remember what he did last weekend, and he said no.
So how do you remember what you are saying happened? and he didn’t answer.
if the accuser is lying can he get in trouble?

Best answer:

Answer by ben s
no, see tragicaly in our modern society many people randomly get what is called “false memory syndrome” where their minds “make up” memorys, often of family members mollesting them

DUI Lawyers Get Case Dismissed Due to Officer?s Lack of Memory

DUI Lawyers Get Case Dismissed Due to Officer’s Lack of Memory














DUI Lawyer AZ – David Michael Cantor


Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) May 5, 2010

DUI Lawyers from the Arizona Law Offices of David Michael Cantor were able to get an Extreme DUI case dismissed due to the fact that, according to court documents, the charging officer was unable to remember details that were pertinent to the case.

According to court documents, in the case of State v. Buford (San Marcos Justice Court No: TR 2008118094) the Justice of the Peace at the San Marcos Justice Court suppressed all evidence after the officer’s traffic stop due to his faulty memory, which resulted in a dismissal of all charges against Buford.

Buford was stopped for an alleged traffic infraction and was ultimately cited for an Extreme DUI after he provided a .154 breath test. Buford claimed that he had made no such driving errors, and he was stopped as a result of a ‘pretext stop’. In other words, the police were merely pulling people over at two in the morning who were leaving bars in order to check them for DUI on a ‘hunch’.

“The officer was honest and testified he could not recall any of the specifics of Mr. Buford’s driving,” said Arizona DUI lawyer David Michael Cantor. “Due to this fact, we were able to get all evidence suppressed and the case ultimately dismissed”.

During the hearing, the officer stated that he had no specific recollection of any of Buford’s driving behaviors. DUI Lawyers from the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor argued that Buford’s specific recollection versus the officer’s lack of recollection required Buford’s testimony to be automatically taken as fact under the case precedent of State v. McFall. The judge agreed and suppressed all evidence garnered after the original stop as a result the State chose not to appeal and dismissed all remaining charges against Buford.

The Law Offices of David Michael Cantor enjoys an excellent reputation as DUI lawyers in Arizona, and throughout the Legal Community because of their aggressiveness, integrity, honesty, and professionalism. For more information about the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor visit DWI lawyers.

CHP Officers and Deputies Will Be Cracking Down on Drunk Driving

Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2007

As Labor Day approaches, Deputies and CHP Officers in San Diego and San Bernardino Counties say they plan to get tough on drunk drivers. The California Highway Patrol also announced on Monday that they will double their traffic safety endeavors over the Labor Day holiday weekend. The announcement may have something to do with the 18 people that died on California roadways over a 24 hour period over the recent Fourth of July weekend.

This crackdown is evident by the 14 arrests and 96 citations that were issued at a sobriety checkpoint last Saturday night on Mariposa Road in Victorville. The checkpoint was conducted by a task force including all 25 law enforcement agencies in San Bernardino County.

San Diego drunk driving offenses also go up over holiday weekends, especially along the beaches, so the police are preparing to step up their forces over the upcoming weekend. Statistics from the San Diego Police Department about last year’s Labor Day weekend reveal that 13 DUI arrests were made on Mission Beach and Pacific beach alone, which are two of the most popular beaches in the county.

While holidays such as Labor Day are times to celebrate, they are also times when a lot of mistakes are made. When people make dangerous mistakes on the roadways, there are often legal consequences. Many people will likely be using the services of San Diego DUI lawyers after the upcoming weekend. San Diego DUI lawyers are knowledgeable about these sorts of cases, which tend to occur far more often on summer holidays such as Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.
