Oklahoma man will undoubtedly want to defend against DUI charge

Accusations of driving while intoxicated have the potential of affecting a person's life for a long time. Of course, simply being accused does not mean that a person is guilty. Anyone facing a DUI charge has the opportunity to defend against the accusations in efforts to work toward a favorable result.

One man in Oklahoma may soon be exploring his defense options after recently being taken into custody. Supposedly, two highway patrol officers stopped the man for driving erratically, and during the traffic stop, they noticed that he had a baby in the back seat of his pickup truck. It was not mentioned whether the baby was properly restrained, and the driver reportedly did not know that the baby was in the truck. One officer called for an ambulance to check the baby as a precaution, and the other officer placed the man under arrest.

Car chase leaves Oklahoma man in need of criminal defense

The manner in which a person chooses to handle criminal charges can depend on many factors. Because no two cases are alike, even individuals in similar situations can have vastly different criminal defense options available to them. For this reason, it is wise for any accused person to closely assess his or her options before making any decisions.

One man in Oklahoma may want to take such action as the first steps of his pending case. According to reports, authorities attempted to pull the man's vehicle over after suspecting that the driver had been involved in a carjacking. However, instead of stopping, the man purportedly sped off and led authorities on a chase. The speed of the chase reached approximately 100 mph.

Drunk driving charge results from pedestrian accident

Some mistakes stay with people for a long time. They may think about their actions and feel immense regret, but in some cases, they may have a lot more than regret to deal with. For instance, if a person is involved in a drunk driving accident that causes harm to another person, criminal charges are likely.

Recent reports indicated that such an accident took place in Oklahoma. A 44-year-old man was driving a vehicle northbound when he failed to remain on the roadway. The vehicle drifted to the left of the road and hit a pedestrian who was standing in a ditch. Additional details regarding the accident itself or how authorities became alerted to the situation were not given in the report.

Oklahoma college students at double risk for DUI punishment

College is a transitional time in your life where you have the opportunity to explore new experiences, meet new people and pave a path toward the career of your dreams. Personal and mental growth during college will help shape the adult you become, as well as your career and earning potential for the rest of your adult life.

Unfortunately, college is also a time when many people choose to indulge their wild side. Higher education is also associated with intense, even irresponsible socialization by youths who have recently moved away from their parents' homes. That could mean going to raucous parties or tailgating before a big football game.

Child custody often a concern during and after divorce

Having children can bring many ups and downs to any Oklahoma resident's life. Though the joys of parenting often outweigh the struggles, some situations can be more complicated due to the fact that children are involved. For instance, parents who go through divorce will have child custody issues to face that those without children do not.

Custody concerns bring an additional element to ending a marriage. Not only do parents typically have concerns about the terms of the custody agreement, but they usually also have worries about how their children will handle the situation overall. In many cases, kids can benefit from being let in on what is happening in age-appropriate ways. This discussion can help children understand that they are not the reason for the divorce, but exact details about why the marriage is ending are usually not needed.

Man, woman facing drug charges after Oklahoma traffic stop

Finding the best way to handle trouble relating to criminal activity can be challenging. If individuals are facing drug charges, they may worry that they will not come out of the situation in a favorable light. Fortunately, anyone charged with any type of crime has the ability to defend against those allegations.

Two Oklahoma residents may be hoping to find the best ways to approach their cases after recently being taken into custody. According to reports, the two were in a vehicle that a police officer stopped for an undisclosed reason. During the traffic stop, the officer and his K-9 reportedly discovered heroin inside the vehicle. There were apparently used syringes, spoons and two syringes that allegedly contained the substance.

Worried that bankruptcy may ruin credit?

The idea of reaching such a difficult financial point that individuals are afraid to answer the phone due to possible creditor calls can be harrowing. Unfortunately, numerous people in Oklahoma do face this type of fear because their debt has reached a substantial point. The reasons that their debt reached this point vary, but bankruptcy is one option that has proven successful in helping address outstanding debt.

Though some people may know that bankruptcy could help them, they may put off filing because they worry that the process will do more harm than good. For instance, they may think that bankruptcy will get rid of their current debt but leave them unable to get loans in the future. However, that does not have to be the case. Though bankruptcy can result in a decline in credit scores and will remain on a credit report for years, consumers can work to address that issue.

Picking battles may help a divorce go more smoothly

When Oklahoma residents find themselves in a tough spot, they may hope that they can get through the ordeal as quickly and easily as possible. For some, this hope may be present while they go through a divorce. Certainly, ending a marriage is a difficult process to complete, but some parties may want to focus on helping it along as best as possible.

One issue that can drag out a divorce case is when the parties involved fight over every decision made. If a person wants to complete the process as quickly as possible, it may be better to pick one's battles during this time. Standing one's ground can certainly have a time and place during marriage dissolution, but it could become problematic if a person feels the need to block every attempt at negotiating simply to try to get everything.

Alcohol consumption is a big problem for teens on the road

The risks that present themselves on the road can come from many different sources. Your own behaviors and physical state can create dangers on the road, but adverse weather conditions and even the time of day can also have an influence.

If you want your children to stay safe when using the roads and if you want to help them avoid legal changes in Oklahoma, you should educate them on the law. By making sure that they understand the consequences of their actions, you should be able to deter your children from making stupid mistakes.

Drunk driving charges leveled against wrong-way driver

Consuming alcohol is an activity that many people participate in. Some may only have one or two drinks while socializing with friends, and others may drink more regularly. Of course, anyone could end up facing charges for drunk driving if an officer conducts a traffic stop and believes that a driver is impaired.

One woman in Oklahoma is facing such a predicament after she reportedly drove the wrong direction. Apparently, officers received reports of a wrong-way driver who was traveling west in the eastbound lanes of the road. Officers presumably conducted a traffic stop, and the woman alleged stated that she was not trying to drive the wrong way. Officers also saw that there were two children in the car at the time, and neither was restrained.
