Tips for suspected OWIs involving women

When men get pulled over by police because of a suspected OWI, the experience can be scary enough for them. However, many women experience even more fear. Part of this can be because they have been sexually harassed or assaulted in the past and fear that male police officers may try to take advantage of them. In fact, this has happened to quite a few women pulled over for traffic violations.

Driver faces OWI charge after crash

In Indiana and across the country, the ongoing drug problem related to opiates has led to people overdosing and needing immediate treatment. Although people's health is a concern, that does not mean law enforcement will turn a blind eye to those who are driving under the influence. Those who use drugs and get behind the wheel will face operating under the influence charges and will need legal assistance, just as a person who is alleged to have committed drunk driving does.

Man faces allegations of multiple offenses related to OWI

Indiana residents who are facing charges of operating while intoxicated should be aware of the penalties they must deal with if they are convicted. To make these situations worse is if there are multiple offenses alleged. For example, if there is an accident and the driver flees the scene, this will make the circumstances worse than a simple arrest for drunk driving or OWI. It is essential that those who are arrested for OWI and other charges have a strong legal defense to avoid the worst penalties.

What does it mean if I face a "per se" DUI charge in Indiana?

Indiana drivers might be surprised at the number of different terms that are part of drunk driving charges in the state. These terms do not seem important initially, however, they can be a key part of the case and formulating a defense against them is essential. One term that should be understood is "per se" laws. With per se, it is basically established that the person who is being investigated as part of a possible DUI charge and has a blood alcohol content level of .08 percent or above will be viewed as intoxicated.

Trucker might face drunk driving charges after crash

Indiana drivers are undoubtedly aware that law enforcement is always on the lookout for drivers who might be under the influence. While many of these drunk driving charges stem from a traffic stop after the officer saw the driver make a questionable maneuver in the vehicle or at a checkpoint, some arrests come after a relatively nondescript incident that is initially believed to have simply been an accident. That does not lessen the charges. If it is a commercial driver who is arrested, the problems are compounded because it can affect the person's employment.

Holiday enforcement could lead to more drunk driving charges

Thanksgiving in Indiana may have passed, but the holiday season is still in progress in the state and across the nation. With that comes an increase in law enforcement vigilance in attempting to tamp down on the number of drivers on the road who are under the influence. While this is undoubtedly a worthwhile endeavor, the number of people who are arrested on drunk driving charges is often related to the perception on the part of officers that they were under the influence. The reality is that some of the arrests might not be conducted according to the law and the evidence could be called into question.
