Social media encompasses just about every aspect of modern life. A new website launched by the Bergen County Sheriff's Office is no exception. The site is called 'Facecrooks' and was created to alert members of the general public of individuals in the area who have been charged with crimes ranging from sex crimes to homicide. It is also being used to track down fugitives, allowing people to report sightings to authorities using social media.
As New Jersey readers are probably aware, a DUI arrest can have a significant impact on a person's life. A conviction for drunken driving can result in steep fines, mandatory participation in a treatment program, and jail time, depending on the circumstances.
