1 accused of drunk driving after allegedly hitting car and tree

A conviction for driving under the influence can have a disastrous impact on a person's life. Allegations alone can be stressful and intimidating, especially when there are multiple pending charges in addition to DUI. When facing similar consequences, an accused individual may wish to protect his or her future, but may be unsure how to proceed. An Illinois woman may be facing several challenges after she was recently accused of numerous crimes, including drunk driving.

Police claim to have received reports in the early hours of the morning that a woman allegedly drove a vehicle across a yard and subsequently struck a car and a tree. Upon arrival, they located the vehicle and claim that the driver was intoxicated and did not have a valid form of identification. According to authorities, she also allegedly left her children at home unattended throughout this period.

She was taken into custody following the event while a family member reportedly picked up the children. She is facing multiple charges in relation to the incident, including driving without a license and leaving the scene of an accident. Consequences for such charges are severe in nature, often including time in jail and significant fines.

A person who is accused of drunk driving may find the subsequent process challenging to navigate alone. Accused individuals often choose to speak with a defense attorney as early as possible for guidance and advice throughout the process. An attorney in Illinois can inform a client of the possible consequences and advise him or her on the best course of action to take during criminal proceedings.
