Proving My Innocence

I have never been one of those people who runs with the wrong crowd, but about six months ago, I knew that I was in trouble. I was with someone when she did something against the law, and it made me a suspected accomplice. I knew that I needed help to prove my innocence regarding the involvement, so I started going through and talking with different criminal attorneys. I was able to find a great lawyer that really understood my position, and he did everything possible to prove my innocence. This blog is all about proving your innocence in court, so that you can move on with your life.

    Exercises For Testing Sobriety

    Just because you were arrested for driving under the influence is no reason to expect to be convicted. Your criminal law attorney has multiple avenues for challenging the state's case against you and you have a chance to be exonerated or to have your charges reduced. One of the main forms of evidence the state will present against you is the results of the testing performed at the roadside. Any such testing can be invalidated if an impropriety can be found, so read on to find out how some of these tests are performed and why the results can be so questionable.

    Reasons That A Prank Can Go From Harmless To Illegal

    Many people enjoy committing pranks that they deem to be harmless and will often document these pranks on video with the intention of sharing them online. It's important for you to realize that if you enjoy performing pranks, one of them could eventually get you into legal trouble. While it's true that even the police can laugh at certain pranks, there are times that you may simply cross the line — and doing so can definitely lead to an arrest.

    Testing Your Level Of Intoxication

    If you've found yourself behind bars and accused of being under the influence, you were likely subject to at least one of the three main biological methods of alcohol testing. While most people are familiar with field sobriety tests like the walk-and-spin and following the light pointer, those tests are considered too subjective to be used alone to obtain a conviction for a driving under the influence (DUI) charge. To get a general idea of how these breath, urine, and blood tests work, read on.

    Understanding Open Container Laws

    Most people understand how dangerous and reckless it is to drive while intoxicated, but open container laws can punish both drivers and passengers. Open container laws came about as a way to cut down on drunk driving accidents and arrests. The presence of a passenger drinking a beer or other alcoholic drink almost always accompanies a driver doing the same thing. These laws attempt to isolate a motor vehicle as an inappropriate place to drink, whether it be the driver or the passengers.

    Search For These Unlawful Things If You Lend A Vehicle To A Friend

    Ideally, you'll only ever loan important possessions such as your vehicle to those you trust. However, you may occasionally find yourself trying to help a friend who may not be the most trustworthy individual — perhaps he or she is someone who has had brushes with the law, for example. If you've loaned a vehicle to such an individual and have recently received it back, it's a good idea to thoroughly search through the vehicle to ensure that it doesn't contain anything that it shouldn't.

    Make These Claims If You've Failed A Field Sobriety Test

    When a police officer pulls you over and detains you on the suspicion of driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, he or she will commonly either administer a Breathalyzer test or put you through a series of field sobriety tests. The former will measure your blood alcohol to indicate whether you're over the limit, which can be difficult for you if you're determined to prove your innocence. The results of field sobriety tests can be a little more subjective, and a good DUI attorney may be able to get your charges dismissed.

    Did Your Extramarital Affair Lead To False Accusations Of Rape? 3 Tips To Handle The Charges

    Extramarital affairs happen for many reasons, and both partners typically enter the relationship with an awareness that they are taking on some level of risk. While you might have thought about getting caught by your spouses, the last thing you ever imagined was that it would turn into an accusation of rape.  While it is rare, people sometimes will do anything to cover up an affair, and you are now left to prove your innocence.

    Your Actions Before, During, And After A Traffic Stop Could Help You Fight The Ticket

    Sometimes, the day can go very badly, very quickly. You're late for work and the speed limit drops from 55 to 35 in a matter of feet. Before you know it, red and blue lights flash in your rear-view – you know in that instant that you're not only going to be late for work, but you're also going to have a hefty fine to pay – a bad day, indeed.
