FELONY PRESCRIPTION DRUG CHARGES

On behalf of Martin & Kent, L.L.C. posted in Drug Crimes on Friday, November 28, 2014.

Illegal sale of certain drugs is becoming increasingly popular for use in recreation or pain management. Many types of prescription drugs, ranging from Codeine to Vicodin, can lead to felony charges if given to another person without a legal prescription. Even licensed professionals are at risk for such charges. Because of the severity of these offenses, it is important to understand why these charges are issued and how to secure a proper defense against them.

WHAT TO DO AFTER A DUI ARREST

On behalf of Martin & Kent, L.L.C. posted in DUI on Thursday, November 20, 2014.

The moment that you are stopped on suspicion of DUI, every action you take and every word you speak may incriminate you. Even if you are arrested, you are not guilty of a crime until a court of law declares you to be guilty, so you must proceed in the best way to defend your innocence at this time.

WILL I GO TO JAIL FOR A DUI?

On behalf of Martin & Kent, L.L.C. posted in Criminal Defense on Monday, November 17, 2014.

In Illinois, it is possible for you to be charged with DUI if law enforcement determines that your blood alcohol content is above .08, which can be reached by drinking two standard sized alcoholic beverages within one hour. If you have been pulled over for driving under the influence, and an officer asks you to take a breath test, this reading will typically determine whether or not you are over the legal limit.

HOW CAN YOU BEAT YOUR DUI?

On behalf of Martin & Kent, L.L.C. posted in DUI on Thursday, November 13, 2014.

When you are charged with a DUI in Illinois, you face serious legal consequences. Even for a first offense, you may find yourself looking at up to one year in jail, fines of up to $2,500, a 1 year license suspension, and the installation of an ignition interlock device on your car. But just because you were arrested on DUI does not mean that there are not ways to reduce or beat charges leveled against you.

CHALLENGING BREATH & BLOOD TESTS

On behalf of Martin & Kent, L.L.C. posted in DUI on Tuesday, November 11, 2014.

No matter where you may be driving in the United States, anyone over the age of 21 with a standard driver's license can be charged with driving under the influence if their blood alcohol content is .08% or higher. A police officer that has pulled someone over for suspected drunk driving can use a few different methods to determine BAC, including field sobriety tests, breath tests, and blood tests. The results of these tests will generally be what determines the charges leveled against the driver.
