Justice Tip Against You

A DUI can result in the impounding of your vehicle

Being accused of drunk driving can trigger a host of events. One of these might be that your vehicle is impounded. This means that a tow truck comes to pick up the vehicle and takes it to the lot where it will be stored until you are able to retrieve it. Lots have limitations on how long they will hold cars, so you should try to find your vehicle and get it back as soon as possible.

Medical marijuana legalization can challenge law enforcement

With the legalization of medical marijuana in Oklahoma, people are having to learn specific points that have to do with this topic. One thing that everyone must remember, including those who can legally use marijuana now, is that you can't drive while you are impaired from the substance. You can face criminal charges if you are found to be operating a motor vehicle while you're impaired from any substance.

When can police pull over a driver for suspected drunk driving?

Did you know there are only specific times when law enforcement can pull a driver over for a DUI traffic stop? This means that police cannot pull you over without having a specific reason to do so. This is reasonable suspicion, and without it, a traffic stop for possible intoxicated operation of a motor vehicle may not be valid.

Strict standards exist for narcotic medications

When people hear about drug charges, they might automatically think of illegal drugs, but these aren't the only kinds of drugs that can lead to these criminal cases. In some cases, narcotics are the substances that are at the center of the matter. Narcotics, many of which are also referred to as opioids, are controlled substances. Only people who have a valid prescription for them can possess these drugs.

Evaluate defense options for a homicide case

Facing homicide charges, which include murder and manslaughter, isn't something that can be ignored. These charges aren't going to go away if you try to forget about them. Because of the very nature of them, the criminal justice system usually takes a very harsh stance against these crimes. It is imperative that you take the time to learn about what options you have to fight the charges against you.
