Sheriff's Sergeant charged with DUI after accident

When an individual is arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, the need to mount an aggressive legal response is immediate. This is true regardless of one's socioeconomic status or career path.

Truck driver facing DUI charges in South Carolina

South Carolina readers may be aware of a recent arrest in which a commercial truck driver has been accused of drunk driving. The story has been covered in depth, and the name of the driver has been made public.

Strong defense strategies may be needed for DUI charges

This time of the year is known for an escalation in drunk driving accidents that commonly result in many people suffering severe personal injuries and even fatalities.
