If you or someone that you know is accused of a crime then you may need the services of a criminal law lawyer. It is the job of these professional defense attorneys to ensure that all of your rights are protected and most importantly, that a vigorous defense is established for the best possible outcome in your particular case. Whenever you are facing criminal proceedings it is absolutely critical that you have an experienced defense attorney to handle your case.

Both the federal government and individual states govern various laws that make certain behavior and activities illegal. Anyone who is convicted of these illegal activities or behaviors can be punished by receiving fines and/or by being confined to prison. A lay person may confuse criminal law with civil matters. A civil case is a dispute between two or more people and sometimes between a person and a company.

A civil matter serves to settle disputes and legal responsibilities between the two individuals. But criminal cases are handled by state and federal prosecutors to determine the outcome of a criminal matter.

DWI

This term stands for driving while intoxicated. Whenever someone is stopped by a police officer and there is some evidence that suggests that the driver is intoxicated, the driver can be found in violation of criminal and administrative offenses. In most states, the Department of Motor Vehicles has as a condition of receiving a driver’s license, that the individual gives implied consent to taking chemical tests if an officer of law enforcement deems it necessary.

The law allows a driver to refuse to submit to the test but when they do, then their license is automatically revocated. Typically, States will revoke the license for a period of six months if a driver refuses to submit to a breathalyzer.

DUI

This term stands for driving under the influence. While commonly used for someone who is intoxicated, this term also has been used to mean driving under the influence of drugs as well as alcohol. All 50 states in the US now use .08 as the limit for being considered too intoxicated with alcohol to drive and operate a motorized vehicle. But if someone is found to be driving while under the influence of regulated and controlled drugs then they also can be charged with DUI.

DWI

This term stands for driving while intoxicated. Often lay persons are confused and wonder if DWI and DUI are the same. The answer to this question depends on the state that the individual is in. Some states do use the terms interchangeably and in those States, they have essentially the same meaning. But there are some states that use these separately with the DUI being used for those that are being charged for driving while intoxicated by alcohol. The DWI charge is given for those that are being charged for driving while under the influence of drugs or drugs and alcohol.

Driving While Ability Impaired By Drugs

Some states in the U.S. have two possible charges a driver can receive if found to be driving under the influence of alcohol. If the driver is charged with, and found guilty of a DUI, it’s a criminal offense that carries a classification of a misdemeanor. Driving while the person’s ability is impaired by drugs is a charge that carries very harsh penalties but is, nonetheless, considered a lesser charge and is not classified as a criminal offense.

Criminal Defense

Criminal defense is a term used for the actions taken to defend someone accused of a crime. The actions are taken by a defense attorney. A defense attorney is someone who has the education and training to qualify them to formulate and carry out a defense on behalf of an individual or company against charges of criminal activity. Commonly, defense attorneys specialize in certain areas of criminal law. For example, they may specialize in defending those accused of DUI, burglary, assault, larceny, and other crimes.

Assault

Anyone who has been accused of assault is in violation of physically attacking a person. If the charges are for domestic assault this is usually for someone who has attacked a family member such as a husband attacking his wife. Another example is someone who is charged with assaulting a police officer.

Larceny

This is a criminal offense given to someone accused of stealing personal property. When someone steals property that belongs to an individual or business then they may be charged with the crime of larceny. This charge usually means that the property was taken without the use of physical force against the person the property belongs to.

Petit Larceny

This is a charge that is given when the value of the item stolen falls under a certain value. Different states set the limit for what that value will be. In rare cases, it could be something that is under $50. Most states will have a limit of under $250 and commonly, States will place the value under $1,000. In that case, if someone steals something that is less than $1,000 then they will get the charge of petit larceny. If the value of the items stolen is considered to be over $1,000 then they will be charged with larceny or grand larceny which carrie’s significantly higher penalties. In some states, the petit larceny may even be considered a misdemeanor where as the higher charge of larceny would be a felony.

Harassment

Harassment is a term that can cover a range of offenses or behaviors. It is generally meant to convey a behavior that is upsetting or disturbing to the person that is receiving it. Under the legal term, it is meant to convey threatening behavior towards a person.

Drug Lawyer

If you have been arrested or charged with possession of drugs or for the sale of drugs then you will need a Drug Lawyer. Because these charges are very serious and can have long-term ramifications if you were found guilty, then finding an experienced drug lawyer in your area is critical.

Burglary

This is a criminal offense that relates to breaking into a building with the intentions of committing a crime which most commonly is theft. A common sentence for this charge if found guilty is 2 years in the penitentiary.
