Upstate New York man faces allegations of gun possession and DUI


Many criminal allegations are not limited to one act, but several. If a person is accused of committing several illegal acts at once, it can lead to exponential long-term consequences. For example, a driver who is stopped on suspicion of driving under the influence could have items or substances in the vehicle that he or she is not legally allowed to have and this can spark other charges. With any arrest, it is imperative to craft a strong criminal defense, but it is even more important when there are several charges lodged against the defendant.

What if one is charged with driving while suspended or revoked?


Traffic violations in New York can lead to the loss of driving privileges. Those who are facing these penalties must be aware that they are not allowed to drive when their license is suspended or revoked. Doing so can result in significant penalties and even jail. With charges related to driving with a license that was suspended or revoked, it is essential to have legal help to lodge a defense. These charges will be referred to as Aggravated Unlicensed Operation (AUO).

Traffic stop leads to multiple charges for drugs and weapons


People who are subject to a traffic stop in the Hudson Valley and throughout New York on suspicion of driving under the influence and committing traffic violations might find themselves facing other charges as well. If there are drugs in the vehicle at the time, the person will inevitably be arrested on drug crime charges on top of the charges related to the initial justification for the stop. With multiple offenses, there can be a litany of penalties if there is a conviction. That makes it vital to have legal help experienced in a broad array of criminal charges to formulate a defense.

Understanding the consequences of breath test refusals


When a New York driver is stopped by law enforcement and the officer suspects that the driver was operating the vehicle under the influence, a request will often be made for the driver to submit to a chemical test. Depending on the circumstances, this will involve a breathalyzer or a blood test.
