Man faces drunk driving charges following accident

If a police officer has reason to believe that you are driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they can arrest you on DUI charges. However, DUI charges may not be the only charges you face. A driver charged with drunk driving may face additional charges, depending on the circumstances surrounding the arrest. For example, a Pennsylvania man was recently charged with a DUI, and is also facing four counts of endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person after a rollover accident.

What to expect when facing drunk driving charges in Pennsylvania

Many people who are facing drunk driving charges in Pennsylvania have no prior arrests and, therefore, do not know what to expect of the criminal court process that awaits them. If you choose to hire an attorney, they can walk you through each step of the DUI court procedure and attempt to make sure you are prepared for what comes next.

How a DUI conviction can negatively impact you for years

As a Pennsylvania college student, you know that there is much more to campus life than going to class and studying. You also have football games, basketball games, fraternity parties, sorority parties and plenty of just plain hanging out with your friends and classmates. You also know that alcohol plays a big part at most of these festivities. But before you overindulge and possibly wind up facing DUI charges, take a few moments to think about what a DUI conviction could do to your future.

Can the police search your vehicle during a traffic stop?

Say you are driving your vehicle in Pennsylvania and a police officer stops you for a standard traffic violation, such as failing to signal or speeding. The officer conducts a search of your vehicle, finds drugs in the trunk and arrests you. You are now facing drug charges. Was the officer legally allowed to search for drugs in your car? The answer is: it depends.

How will the court divide up our property when we divorce?

One of the most challenging parts of a divorce is determining how to split up the assets you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse have acquired over the course of your relationship. Family law courts vary from state to state when it comes to property division rules. Some states are classified as community property states, while other states, including Pennsylvania, are classified as equitable distribution states.
