Man faces DWI and other charges following traffic stop


Driving while impaired allegations and charges require a strong criminal defense response. Following a traffic stop in a New York community north of Carle Place, one man is facing DWI and drug charges. According to authorities, two men in the vehicle are facing charges after they were pulled over and were allegedly in possession of drugs and the driver allegedly had a blood alcohol content level triple the legal limit and was driving an unregistered vehicle with stolen license plates.

Authorities reported that they pulled over the 22-year old driver of the vehicle after he allegedly committed several traffic violations. After the traffic stop, the man and his 35-year old passenger are alleged to have been in possession of cocaine. The driver provided a breath sample and his blood alcohol content level was allegedly three times the legal limit.

The driver was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated driving while intoxicated, criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of stolen property and several other criminal charges and traffic violations. The passenger is also facing several criminal charges. DWI charges carry serious penalties and consequences which is why it is important for accused individuals to be familiar with criminal defense options.

Criminal defense rights ensure that police did not violate the rights of an accused individual which may be grounds to challenge the charges the accused individual is facing. A strong criminal defense strategy can help ensure accused individuals are able to protect themselves against the potentially serious penalties and consequences associated with DWI and other criminal charges.
