MAN FACES DRUNK DRIVING CHARGES IN NEVADA

A 31-year-old out of state man is facing serious charges after being arrested by local police, sources have said. The man was charged with drunk driving by Nevada police after being pulled over on Interstate 80 on Aug. 2. No court date was reported concerning this case.

According to the report released by Nevada police in Elko County, the man was pulled over on I-80 around 10 miles west of Wells for unspecified reasons. According to the officer on the scene, there were four passengers in the vehicle. One of these passengers was a child, aged 6, who was apparently not wearing a seat belt at the time of the traffic stop.

The man apparently had an open container of alcohol in the car with him at the time, though further information regarding that claim was not forthcoming. The man was subsequently arrested and booked for drunk driving and child endangerment. No mention was made of any roadside sobriety tests being conducted, raising a question as to how it was determined that the man was drunk at the time of the stop.

A drunk driving charge not backed up by empirical evidence of intoxication in the form of a blood test or failed roadside sobriety test might be difficult to prove. Nevada prosecutors will need to provide compelling evidence for their case before any conviction is possible, and the burden of proof remains their responsibility until and unless they can actually prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That legal standard is intentionally set at a high level in order to prevent innocent people from being subjected to wrongful convictions.

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.
