Most well-meaning citizens never intend to leave their house and break the law. Unfortunately, in some situations good intentioned people make bad choices and find themselves in complicated situations. You might be wondering what exactly would cause a well-intentioned person to find themselves on the wrong side of the law. We’ll go into that a little bit.
You might have moved and forgotten to update your residency information. In the chaos of the move you might not have updated your mailing information with the post office quickly or perhaps you didn’t contact all important companies that send you paper mail. This could equate to your not receiving your license plate renewal information. In all honestly; how often do people look at the sticker on the back of their plate? If you forget to renew your plates you may receive a ticket for that offense. If you are a forgetful person who also travels a lot for work or leads a very busy life you may forget to pay that ticket or show up for court. This would be a perfect situation where a well-meaning individual now will have an arrest warrant issued over something that really is quite minor.
You may not even be aware that this has been issued. You could be out driving your car with the intention of grocery shopping and your plates get run and you get pulled over and detained for failure to appear in court over issued tickets. What do you do when this happens? You can obviously call family and friends to have them post bond but you will also need to have a reliable attorney ready to assist you through this legal process.
This was just one situation where you may need legal help with the judicial system but there is another one that is all too common unfortunately. You find yourself out on the town for a fun night out. You have one too many cocktails and feel as though you are completely ok to drive your vehicle home. It is a short distance and you feel fine. This is honestly inexcusable in the age of Uber and Lyft. There are many ride options that would not require you to put your driving privileges at risk as well as your life and the life of anyone you pass by in your vehicle. People are not perfect though and mistakes do happen. So, let’s just say you get behind the wheel and find yourself pulled over and on the side of the road performing FST’s (field sobriety tests). If you fail these tests, then you were not ok to be operating a motorized vehicle and will find yourself in jail. You will quickly need the services of any dui attorneys Carrollton GA and cities all across the US have qualified attorneys to help you through these difficult times.
Make sure you utilize an attorney that specializes in DUI (driving under the influence) and one that is up front with costs and expectations. You should be apprised of the entire situation and how court will play out. This will prevent any surprises and help get you through the process of legally dealing with a DUI charge.
