Woman faces drunk driving charges after crashing into store

When Virginians are arrested for drunk driving, it frequently results in multiple charges. Ordinary, law-abiding citizens can find themselves in jail after being charged with drunk driving. To avoid the worst possible fate after a drunk driving arrest, it is important to have legal assistance.

A series of crashes resulted in a woman's arrest on a slew of charges. Law enforcement was called after a woman crashed into a parked vehicle and a light pole. The license plate from the woman's vehicle became stuck in the pole. The woman subsequently ran onto the curb and crashed head-on with other parked vehicles.

A witness followed the woman as she went over a median and into a shopping center. She hit the brick wall of a store, backed up, hit a bench and a flower pot and took off again. She then went through a gate that had been closed and ran onto the grass, where her vehicle began to spin, before hitting a boulder. When law enforcement arrived, the driver stated that she had been drinking and took medication for which she did not have a prescription. She was arrested.

After an arrest with significant evidence that a person was under the influence, they might think they have no choice but to plead guilty. However, that is not the case. There are many strategies to craft a defense and avoid the worst potential penalties. The evidence could be questionable for some of the charges, making it possible that they will be reduced. Simply accepting the charges as laid out is a mistake.

If you have been charged with drunk driving, you must be sure that you understand the charges and the penalties you are facing. A law firm that understands how to defend clients confronted with DUI offenses can help you prepare a strong defense.
