b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_435670558.jpgIf you have been charged with DUI, you may be facing several issues such as shame, depression, and social stigma. Fortunately, you can get your life back on track after a DUI conviction and learn from your mistake. Here are several tips that will help you get through this hurdle and move forward with your life.

  1. Seek Treatment If Necessary. In some cases, a DUI was the result of one bad decision. However, if you often find yourself getting behind the wheel while intoxicated, you may have an alcohol addiction. If you believe you have an alcohol issue that is affecting your life, career, and relationships, you should seek treatment by contacting your doctor or a local treatment center.
  2. Seek Support. Facing a DUI can be an overwhelming experience. Therefore, you should seek support from your family, close friends, or even a professional counselor. Resolving problems on your own could do more harm than good so it is important that you take advantage of loved ones and professionals who have your best interest in mind.
  3. Forgive Your Mistake. Tell yourself that nobody is perfect and one mistake does not make you a bad person. You should accept that you were caught driving under the influence, forgive yourself, and do everything in your power to avoid another DUI charge in the future.
  4. Find a Hobby You Enjoy. One of the most effective ways to take your mind off your DUI and unleash some stress is to find a hobby you enjoy. Some examples of hobbies you should consider are joining a fantasy football league, bird watching, bowling, yoga, cooking, and woodworking.
  5. Create a List of Goals. Rather than focusing on your DUI conviction and what happened in your past, you should focus on your future by creating a list of goals. Think about where you want to be in 5, 10, and 15 years from now and ask yourself what you can do to make your dreams a reality.
  6. Reach Out to an Experienced DUI Attorney. DUI laws are complex and difficult to understand. To ensure that your rights are protected and increase your chances of avoiding a conviction, you should consult an experienced DUI attorney. They can evaluate your case and may be able to design a strong defense strategy that can improve your situation.

Domestic abuse

As a previous post highlighted, some criminal charges can impact more than just the individual accused of a crime. With regards to domestic violence, defendants as well as the alleged victim could experience a harmed, limited, or severed relationship with a significant other or family member. Thus, even if the penalties associated with the crime do not seem harsh, which they can be, the personal consequences are often serious.

This is what an Oak Creek woman might be experiencing after recently being arrested for domestic violence. According to reports, Wisconsin authorities were called to a Value Inn just before 7:30 p.m. Based on the information provided by the 911 caller, a woman was extremely intoxicated and was in an argument with a man. It is believed that this argument was sparked by the man calling her names.

Domestic abuse

Conflicts occur amongst loved ones. While some of these disputes are minor and can be overcome quickly, others escalate, causing major arguments that involve threats and harm. Domestic abuse is a serious crime of which to be accused. It not only carries with it severe penalties, but it also impacts the relationship between and among family members or significant others. Thus, it is important that accused individuals understand the elements of the crime and the potential penalties it carries. This knowledge could help a defendant assert a strong defense, thereby protecting his or her rights.

According to the Wisconsin State Legislature, domestic abuse is defined as an adult engaged in intentional infliction of physical pain, injury or illness, intentional impairment of physical condition, sexual assault, or a physical act that generates a reasonable fear of imminent engagement of conduct that could cause harm. These acts can be committed by an adult against his or her spouse, former spouse, an adult with whom they reside or with whom they formerly resided, or an adult with whom he or she has a child in common.

Criminal Trial Process

When it comes to drug crimes, most people think of individual who commit crimes involving the sale and distribution of illegal narcotics. Those who are convicted of manufacturing or cultivating drugs could face harsh penalties. While many view this crime as meaning that an individual has produced a drug, it could actually encompass a broader range of activities. In fact, an individual in Wisconsin could face such a charge if they are found to be involved in any step of the process that results in the production of an illicit drug.

What are the penalties for drug manufacturing and cultivation? Those charged with drug production typically face a felony charge. Penalties for this offense include prison time, hefty fines, and probation. It should be noted that these penalties could be doubled if a defendant is convicted of manufacturing illegal drugs near a school or playground. Whether or not a defendant is convicted, merely being charged with such a crime could have negative impacts of the accused's personal and professional lives. This emphasizes the importance of asserting a timely and strong defense against the charges.
