The communications director for the governor’s office is facing a potentially disastrous charge after being pulled over the night of May 15. The Nevada governor’s spokeswoman was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and is currently facing charges to that effect. No trial date has yet been set.

Very few details of her arrest are available as of this report, but it has been made clear that attending officers who pulled her over were sure enough of her allegedly intoxicated state to formally charge her. It has not been clarified why she was initially pulled over or how officers reached this conclusion. No mention was made of a roadside sobriety test or blood sample being taken to confirm these allegations.

The spokeswoman has released a statement alluding to an “error in judgment” on her part, and the governor’s office has said Governor Sandoval is “extremely disappointed” in his communications director. However, neither of these statements speak to the woman’s innocence or guilt, which is up to the courts to determine. However, if she is found guilty of DUI, her career could be in jeopardy.

A drunk driving charge for an individual in the public eye can be a damning one in terms of its effects on that individual’s career. Nevada prosecutors typically have to provide compelling evidence in the form of roadside sobriety results or a blood test measuring an illegal blood alcohol level. The defense may wish to examine any such evidence before it is offered in evidence before the court, not to mention reviewing the arrest record to ensure her rights were not violated at any time during the arrest process.

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.
