Illegal stop leads to dropped DUI charges

Drunk driving charges are obviously very serious. Aside from the stigma attached to a person that carries such a charge, a DUI can result in a person losing their license for quite some time. That can result in difficulties retaining or finding work. A DUI charge will also increase your insurance rates, often by a very large margin. This is another added financial difficult that, in addition to other fines and penalties, makes a DUI charge such a burden for the accused individual.

Common sense for the win: student will not be charged after all

In our last post, we talked about a high school student who was expelled from school and on the brink of facing felony criminal charges for a very minor incident.

The bottle popped and smoked -- but it was deemed that the girl made a destructive weapon.

Student's curiosity, unintended mishap leads to felony charges

When it comes to criminal defense stories, the circumstances usually stray to the extremes. Either you read a story about someone who does something so terrible that, surely, they must be guilty (only for the case to go the other way); or the defendant clearly had no malicious intent, a random convergence of circumstances and personalities leads to a good person being sent to jail under controversy.

Whenever someone is accused of fraud, it's important to be able to refute the charges if you feel like you are being wrongly accused. Sometimes someone's actions could have been a simple misunderstanding, instead of a malicious attempt to bilk someone out of money. No matter what the charges, though, the accused needs to be guaranteed the right to a fair trial.
