DRUNK DRIVING CHARGES FILED IN NEVADA

A tragic accident that claimed the life of a 16-year-old girl is being investigated further by Nevada authorities. They believe the driver involved may have been intoxicated. A 28-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving following the fatal crash on the afternoon of Nov. 24. The man now faces several felony charges. If found guilty, he could face considerable jail time.

According to the report, the teenager was walking in the afternoon on the day in question when she was struck by a vehicle driven by the accused man. He reportedly hit a curb and damaged a tire before his vehicle struck the girl, who died at the scene. The driver continued on without stopping.

Police were later able to trace his tire tracks to a nearby home. He was apprehended there. He now stands charged with DUI resulting in death and failure to stop at an accident scene. The felony charges carry a potentially heavy penalty in Nevada, and the man could be facing fines, a substantial prison time and the loss of his license if he is found guilty.

However, Nevada authorities will first have to prove this was indeed a case of drunk driving. In order to do so, they will need to provide compelling evidence, typically in the form of a Breathalyzer or blood test confirming the man’s blood alcohol level was above the legal limit of .08. If they are unable to do so, or if the evidence is tainted in any way, the drunk driving charge could be reduced or dropped entirely.

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.
