Man, 22, needs criminal defense after DUI and vehicular assault

When there is an arrest in Reno, it is possible that there will be more than one offense that crosses the lines of the law into different violations. For example, if a person is charged with driving under the influence and tries to flee law enforcement, there will likely be separate charges. With different charges, there can be harsher penalties and it can be difficult to defend. Fortunately, there are alternatives to deal with the charges. A qualified legal professional experienced in criminal defense can be of assistance.

A 22-year-old man is facing a litany of charges after a series of incidents in the parking lot of a strip club. According to the investigation, officers were called to the scene at around 3 a.m. The man was alleged to have been under the influence. Another man tried to stop him from driving in his condition. He drove off and hit a vehicle. Another witness tried to stop him. The driver is accused of trying to run the witness over as he fled. He went a short distance before crashing into a utility pole. To avoid officers, he fled on foot but was caught. The charges he faces include DUI, driving recklessly, driving without a license, assault and more. He also had a prior misdemeanor for which he failed to appear in court.

Any criminal charge can have a negative impact on a person's life. When there are multiple charges, they can compound and lead to a long jail sentence, hefty fines and a problematic criminal record. At any age, this is a challenge, but when it is a young person who is ostensibly just starting out in his or her adult life, it is preferable to seek a reasonable resolution. Perhaps there is an explanation for the person's behavior. There might be an absence of evidence to prove all the charges. Or the prosecutor could be willing to negotiate a plea agreement. To avoid the worst penalties or get an acquittal, having legal assistance is imperative.

A man who is accused of committing a series of violations with his vehicle was arrested. Although the charges are serious, he still has rights. Before accepting the conviction and penalties, it is important to explore all one's criminal defense options in order to seek an acceptable outcome.
