These are generally considered to be crimes less serious than a felony and they will carry less of a penalty, however, they can still be highly damaging and lead to a mark on the criminal record of a person found guilty. Avoiding a conviction is important since it can not only leave you with fines or probation time, in addition to being viewable to the public including future employers. A misdemeanor can be a smaller crime that can still leave you with an unfortunate outcome.
A felony is the most serious charge that person can receive, although there are different types of felonies that will punished in various manners. Those convicted can face jail time, probation, high fines, community service and more. The state follows the three strikes law so those that are convicted four times will have their sentencing increased each time after that. A charge for a felony such as rape, murder, drug trafficking or burglary can be detrimental to the life and goals of a person. When you are suspected of a crime of this nature, you need to seek capable defense fast.
DWI (Driving While Impaired)
Driving while impaired is a crime in any state. Impairment can be a result of drugs, alcohol and even prescription medication. The blood alcohol content level of a person is required to be less than .08 percent for them to legally be behind the wheel. When you are suspected for drinking and driving an officer can choose to pull you over to assess if you appear to have been drinking. Often times it is useful to remain silent so as to not incriminate yourself further.
Streets and freeways are used by many as a way to get around but it is important to never become too comfortable when driving. A mistake can leave you facing a traffic offense than can be costly. Speeding, running a red light, reckless driving and driving without a license are all examples of a traffic violation that can go on your record. The more offenses you accrue on your record, the more your insurance rates can begin to climb.
DMV Hearings & License Restorations
