When a gift becomes a bribe

There's a good chance that at some point in your adult life, you have either given or received a gift. Most of the time, these generous acts of kindness are nothing more than a thoughtful gesture. However, occasionally these "gifts" can mean something else. When something of value is given or received in exchange for some type of influence, authorities may consider it bribery.

Can I receive a DUI from activity days ago?

Although it is completely possible to still be intoxicated the morning after a late night of drinking, the risk getting a DUI essentially vanishes a day or two after your activity. This may be beneficial information if, for example, you have a Saturday night bachelor party that runs into the late morning hours of Sunday and your due at work on Monday. Although you may not feel very well, you run little risk of receiving a DUI. Unfortunately, the same quick metabolism does not apply to pot, and when it comes to driving under the influence of drugs, your activity from days ago may be enough to result in a DUI charge.

Drug paraphernalia charges based on context of use

Criminal charges related to drugs are not always brought about by possession of the drugs themselves. Occasionally, individuals can be facing drug charges for possession of what federal law constitute as paraphernalia. State laws provide a list of certain items that are unquestionably considered drug paraphernalia. Being found with these items, regardless of context is enough to be charged with a crime. However, depending on the context in which other objects are assumed or found, simple household items may be enough to warrant drug charges as well.

Protect your future and reputation with the help of an attorney

Being charged with a crime may seem like the end of the world, but fortunately, it isn't. No matter what criminal charge you are facing, working with an experienced criminal defense attorney can help limit the damage it does to your future and reputation.
