On the Independence Day holiday and the days after it, police officers will be on heightened alert for drunk drivers. In an ideal world, anyone who has had one or more alcoholic beverages will find a designated driver to take them home. Unfortunately, this isn't how life always works.
Many people think that you can only face one court case for a specific event. While this might seem like it is the case, it isn't. There are some crimes that can lead to more than one court case. These include things like drunk driving cases, charges stemming from fights and many violent crimes. In any case that involves a person getting injured, there is a chance that you will face a criminal case and a civil case.
People who are facing a felony charge are often shocked at how severe the penalties are for these crimes. One of the first things that you need to do when you are charged is to find out what options are possible for resolving the case. This can have a big impact on how you fare in the end.
Being convicted of a felony crime means that you are forever branded as a felon. This is a tough pill to swallow because it comes with a lot of different limitations. It also means that you might be judged by society without ever being given a chance to prove that you've turned your life around.
Now that the summer is here, many people are ready to get out and do things that allow them to enjoy being outside. While it might seem like everyone should be in a good mood now that the weather is so nice, everyone should be aware that there is an increase in tempers flaring that comes with the hotter months of the year.
