DUI can hit your family and your wallet, hard

The night Mississippi police put handcuffs on your wrists and drove you to the county jail in the back of a squad car may still seem like a bad dream. However, the fact that you had to call your spouse and come up with money to post bail quickly brought home the reality of your situation. The officer who arrested you may have mentioned that your tires drifted over the yellow line before he or she stopped you.

Do you know how to respond to criminal charges?

When you face criminal charges, your next several choices are suddenly very important to your ongoing freedom. If you react poorly, or more specifically react in a way that makes you appear guilty, you do yourself no favors and may even worsen your chances of beating the allegations.

Seeking employment after serving jail time

After you serve time in jail, you may face great difficulty transitioning back into society, especially when it comes to securing a job. Depending on the nature of your criminal conviction, you may have many fewer options for employment, legally speaking. This does not, however, mean that finding work is impossible after incarceration.

How does an officer assess sobriety during a traffic stop?

Many drivers do not realize that a police officer may use a number of different methods to determine the level of impairment of a particular driver during a traffic stop. While a great deal of attention goes toward chemical testing at the scene, an officer may use several different methods to establish if a driver is impaired.
