Drunk driving charges leveled against wrong-way driver

On Behalf of | Jul 2, 2019 | Criminal Defense |

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.

The woman apparently provided a breath sample for testing, but the report only indicated that it reached aggravated DUI levels and did not provide a specific percentage. Nonetheless, the woman is facing charges for child endangerment by driving under the influence, failure to use a child restraint system and improper driving on a divided highway. At the time of the report, the woman had been released on a surety bond of $10,000. 

This Oklahoma woman may be feeling various emotions in the aftermath of her drunk driving arrest. Still, she has time before her first court appearance to work on how she would like to approach her case. Though she may not feel entirely confident in where to start her preparations, gaining information about the charges and her defense options may be useful.
