DUI, DWI, OVWI Charges in Indiana
Of course, the most common type of crime we defend is DUI. That is because very often, good people make bad mistakes. The consequences of one mistake could skyrocket considerably if someone else was injured or killed in an accident.
Some folks may not even be aware that they have broken the law. They may be taking a medication that was prescribed by a doctor and had a bad reaction. You need an attorney who understands breathalyzers, roadside sobriety tests, and blood tests and can ensure that the results of these tests were not skewed in the prosecution’s favor.
Drug Possession Charges
Another common crime is drug possession. You are considered “in possession” of drugs if you exert control over the drugs. This means that the drugs do not even have to technically be yours for you to be charged with possession. You need only be aware that the drugs were there or permitted them into your home or car. A skilled criminal defense attorney can negotiate with D.A. to ensure your life is not ruined over a petty offense.
Domestic Violence Charges
When the police are called to the scene in a domestic violence situation, they always err on the side of removing the individual they perceive to be the greater threat — in other words, the man. They will often charge the man with domestic violence without having heard the whole story. A defense attorney will ensure that you are not convicted without proving that you intentionally harmed your partner.
Juvenile crimes are handled in family court, not a criminal court. If your child has been charged with a crime, you need an attorney who can navigate that system as well as the criminal justice system. The Bellinger Law Office can help.
