Kentucky man driving with child arrested for DUI

When a serious offense is committed on the road, it can result in license suspension or revocation, fines and even a jail sentence.

When someone is accused of committing a sex crime -- we're not even saying convicted, but just the simple accusation of such an act -- their lives can be changed forever. Their friends and family may never look at them the same way, even if they are innocent. Their professional lives could be ruined, if not tainted. And the person's name may be all over the internet because of such accusations, creating a permanent connection between the person and words such as "sexual assault," "rape," and "sex crime."
