The average person has little to no legal training. While people facing criminal charges may have a basic understanding of the fact that they have certain rights, for example, they may not be fully aware of all their rights or whether unlawful treatment has occurred. As such, those facing criminal charges in Nebraska, including those related to drunk driving, often choose to hire someone to help them respond to the accusations against them.
One man is likely considering his legal options following his recent arrest. The incidents that led to the arrest reportedly happened around 9:30 p.m. on a day in late July. According to reports, a concerned citizen notified police that someone was driving a pickup truck erratically. According to the person reporting the vehicle, the driver passed in a no passing zone and went into a ditch.
However, police say they were not able to locate the vehicle until after an accident happened. Reports claims that the pickup exited the roadway before striking a pole and an unoccupied vehicle. He was reportedly transported to county jail after receiving treatment at the hospital. Police say that the vehicle was also involved in an “earlier” disturbance but details regarding it are unclear.
Reports indicate that the man was driving on a suspended license due to a prior conviction. As a result of this incident, he faces charges of felony drunk driving and felony driving under suspension, with additional charges pending. Unfortunately, his current legal situation is serious, and he could face significant consequences if convicted of the charges he faces. Fortunately, there are experienced criminal defense attorneys who are willing to help those facing such accusations in Nebraska appropriately respond to them.
