MAN ARRESTED ON DUI CHARGES AFTER FATAL NEVADA CAR ACCIDENT

A fatal car accident occurred on the evening of Feb. 18 in Nevada. Police, who responded to reports of a rollover crash, subsequently arrested a suspect on DUI charges. The investigation remains ongoing, and actual established facts surrounding the incident seem somewhat sparse at this time.

Police arrived at the crash site that Saturday night at just before midnight to find a scene in which it appeared one vehicle had collided with another and then rolled over. The driver of the vehicle that had apparently been hit was dead when officers got there. The 21-year-old driver of the other vehicle and his two passengers reportedly escaped major injury.

Allegedly, police statements indicate that the male driver appeared to officers at the scene as though he might have been intoxicated. However, the news report makes no mention of any breathalyzer or blood alcohol content test results, or even whether any such testing was performed. Additionally, while officers state that speed appears to have been a contributing factor in the accident, there has yet been no official determination of how fast the vehicles were going at the time of the collision.

MAIT, the Major Accident Investigation Team, responded to the scene of the accident, and the investigation is reportedly ongoing. With so many details as yet to be determined, and no mention of any actual definitive testing performed to establish whether the defendant was, in fact, driving while intoxicated, it is impossible to tell whether there will be enough concrete evidence to make the DUI charges stick. Regardless, the defendant will doubtlessly want to explore his options for legal defense strategies with an experienced Nevada attorney, who will be able to work with the defendant towards the best possible outcome.

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.
