New Jersey ambulance driver charged with drunk driving

Driving while intoxicated can carry some serious ramifications for the offender. A person who is caught driving with a blood alcohol content level above the legal limit may end up facing penalties that include license suspension and jail time. If individuals drink and drive while on the job, they could end up losing their jobs as well, especially if that job involves driving and public safety. Facing a drunk driving charge requires a thorough understanding of both legal rights and potential consequences.

Charges may be dropped against officer at fault in car accident

People sometimes use poor judgment when alcohol is involved. Being stopped by police for impaired driving can be a sobering experience, but facing a drunk driving charge can have serious and life-changing consequences. Even when there is no charge, the implication that alcohol was involved may prompt legal challenges.

Being charged with driving under the influence requires a strong criminal defense. Sometimes a DUI charge is the result of an accident, while other times it may stem from a simple police stop.

When it comes to alcohol and driving, a momentary lapse in judgment can sometimes result in severe penalties.

That kind of representation is likely what a Jersey City man will need after he crashed his vehicle into a police truck.

Should the justice system address addiction and other illnesses?

DUI charges aren't uncommon in New Jersey or anywhere else in the U.S. When a person is pulled over for drunk driving, it's usually the case that they have either made a bad decision, or that the officer has made a mistake and the driver is found not guilty. A recent DUI charge clearly indicates that the defendant involved needs help.
