Foreseeability used as vehicular homicide criminal defense

When a New Yorker is accused of a crime, he or she might face multiple charges. In some cases, an arresting officer or prosecution might attempt to charge the New Yorker with crimes beyond the scope of the originating crime or as many crimes he or she can. Such a situation could mean harsh and serious penalties for the defendant, if they are convicted. Therefore, it is important that the accused makes a strong defense, so he or she is not convicted of a crime he or she did not commit.

Helping New York residents with DWI defenses

Following a traffic stop or an accident, drivers in New York could criminal charges if an officer suspects that the driver is under the influence of alcohol. If a blood alcohol test is administered or a sobriety test raises this suspicion, a police officer could arrest the driver and charge him or her with a DWI. Some drivers might feel like they have very little options, when it comes to fighting a DWI because police officers collected evidence at the scene. However, drivers should not let this deter them.

Circumstances that could elevate a DUI charge to a felony

New york residents are aware that drinking and driving could result in serious penalties, and based on the circumstances of the traffic stop or charging location, the accused could face additional charges as well. However, what factors or circumstances could cause the charges to be elevated? Specifically, what makes a drunk driving charge a felony DUI charge?

How can you dismiss drug charges based on marijuana possession?

Being accused of a crime an individual believes that he or she did not commit can be a difficult predicament to be in, especially when state law permits his or her actions. However, facing allegations of a drug crime does not mean that the accused must endure the penalties of the crimes the defendant has been charged with. In fact, it means that the defendant could use state laws and regulations to make a defense to dismiss the charges they face.
