Criminal defense should review alleged drunk driving pursuit

High-speed pursuits are more than likely not commonplace here in Derry or elsewhere. However, they do happen on occasion. One of the things that criminal defense teams often do is review the circumstances under which the pursuit occurred and whether it was conducted in accordance with police policy and procedure, along with the driver's interactions with law enforcement officials from first contact.

Two people arrested for drug crimes deserves a criminal defense

Most Derry residents are aware that if they are arrested, they have the right to legal counsel. The Miranda warning that is supposed to be given to every person accused of and arrested for a crime even states that the individual has the right to a criminal defense attorney. This stresses the importance of being represented during such a trying and frightening time for the individual that is accused.

The question of actual control could be part of criminal defense

Not every Derry resident who is arrested for driving under the influence was driving at the time. Here in New Hampshire, it is often enough to be in actual physical control of the vehicle -- which generally means being behind the wheel with the keys in the ignition -- to be arrested for DUI. The question of whether a driver was in actual physical control of the vehicle could be part of his or her criminal defense.

Karate teacher focused on criminal defense in sexual assault case

Derry parents often entrust their children to strangers at school and in extracurricular activities. The adults charged with their care and safety often find themselves accused of failing in those duties -- sometimes involving criminal charges. A karate teacher here in New Hampshire is likely focused on a criminal defense to charges that he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl.

Will court approve plea deal worked out by criminal defense?

Derry residents who are facing charges for drug crimes often face serious penalties. Therefore, they and their criminal defense teams might pursue plea agreements with prosecutors in order to have a guaranteed outcome to the situation. However, the court will have to approve the agreement before it can take effect.
