DRIVER IN NEVADA ACCUSED OF DRUNK DRIVING

A driver accused of precipitating a fatal bus crash in Las Vegas is facing serious charges, according to local news sources. The 25-year-old man is facing drunk driving charges including three for DUI causing severe bodily harm and an additional two for DUI causing death. In Nevada, the man could face up to 100 years in prison if found guilty of these charges.

The crash took place on Sept. 5, in downtown Las Vegas. According to the accident report, the man allegedly sped through a red light in a sports car, striking a tour bus with enough force to overturn it and set it on fire. The vehicle also spun away and struck a third car. The 25-year-old suffered moderate injuries in the crash.

Others involved in the accident were not so lucky, however. The driver of the tour bus and a German tourist were both declared dead at the scene, and several other people were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The county district attorney’s office has stated the man’s blood alcohol level was measured at .22, well above the legal limit in Nevada of .08. The man has yet to face his charges in court as he was still hospitalized at last report.

In situations where evidence of drunk driving has been collected by medical professionals in a hospital setting, there is still room for error. A Nevada defense attorney may wish to review the tests that were administered to check for errors and assess whether they were administered in accordance with the rights of the injured driver. If there is any question about the validity of this evidence, the defense may petition the court to seek its exclusion before a trial takes place.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
