Police do not always act appropriately when filing drug charges

The impact of criminal charges extends well beyond a defendant's personal life. This is especially true with drug charges, which can result in so much more than fines and time behind bars. A conviction for drug charges on a background check can profoundly affect a person's ability to gain or maintain steady employment. If you have been accused of a drug-related crime, timely action can be key to minimizing this type of impact.

Facing criminal accusations can be an incredibly stressful experience. Defendants often worry about the impact that a criminal conviction may have on their lives. This is especially true for Illinois defendants who are facing drug charges, which can carry severe consequences, including hefty fines and even years in prison.

Drunk driving charges might have spiked during Labor Day patrols

Holiday weekends are usually times for friends and loved ones to gather together, but excessive police patrols can sometimes throw a wrench in these types of plans. Illinois police implemented special patrols over the Labor Day weekend in hopes of spotting potentially impaired drivers. Unfortunately, police are only human, and no matter how well-intentioned these patrols might be, some drunk driving charges are not always appropriate.

Illinois residents feel the effects of alcohol differently. Some people can have one drink and start slurring their words. Yet, others can have a pitcher of beer and walk a straight line. The factor that binds these two types of individuals, however, is that neither should necessarily get behind the wheel of a car after drinking because they risk being arrested for drunk driving or for being involved in an alcohol-related accident.
