Reasonable suspicion for a stop might be questioned in a defense

Drunk driving traffic stops are one way that police officers can stop drunk drivers from harming themselves or other people. For the people who are facing these charges, this isn't much of a consolation. If you are facing charges for drunk driving, you have to work on your defense. This can encompass many points. One of these is why you were pulled over in the first place.

What constitutes a probation violation?

When a defendant is on probation, perhaps one of their biggest fears is being sent back to spend more time in a jail cell.

Drug charges: From paraphernalia to trafficking

In the previous blog post, the case of the Burger King worker who used code words for drugs was discussed. This interesting case addressed how it is possible to face more than one type of drug charge. In fact, there is a range of drug charges that prosecutors can consider when determining how to prosecute a defendant.

Do you want fries with that? Dealer's code words crack drug case

It seemed like a sweet arrangement: Instead of confining his drug deals to the back of the restaurant's parking lot like most other dealers, a drug dealer in Epping, New Hampshire, decided to run his business straight from the drive-through of a local Burger King.
