Both town justices have "traffic calendars" which are devoted to adjudicating traffic tickets. The NYS Police are prohibited from negotiating plea bargains on traffic violations. As a result, the town attorneys act as prosecutor for tickets written by the NYS police. 95% of state police tickets are adjudicated through plea bargains with the prosecutor. The Town Prosecutor and both judges are reasonable about plea bargains as long as the speed was not more than 25 mph over the limit or over 90 mph.
Local police officers sometimes prosecute their own tickets, though the special prosecutor may substitute for them. Again, most tickets are resolved through plea bargains. Traffic court sessions can last 1+ hours. Attorneys are permitted to appear without their clients being present for traffic court..
All criminal prosecutions are handled by the Orange County District Attorney's Office. The DA's office takes a very hard line on DWI prosecutions. In 2009 there were more than 1800 alcohol related driving arrests impaired or intoxicated driving (DWI, DWAI, DWAI-D) in Orange County. Both the NYS Police and the Woodbury Town Police made numerous arrests. Most arrests occurred after dark with many taking place after . Police officers assume that many driver's who are out after have consumed alcohol and or drugs. As a result they are looking for any lawful reason to pull drivers over in order to investigate possible DWI incidents. All of these offenses are "criminal" violations of the law and, as a result are prosecuted by the Orange County District Attorney's office.
