Allegations of abuse are serious in nature and carry severe penalties should a conviction be obtained. Although some domestic disputes may involve nothing more than a heated argument, others may unfortunately turn violent. Once a dispute becomes physical, causing injury to one party, the potential consequences increase significantly, especially if a minor is involved. A legislator is facing domestic violence charges after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend at her place of residence in New York.
A conviction for driving under the influence can have a significant impact on a person's future in numerous ways. In addition to potentially leading to time behind bars, one's driving privileges may also be in jeopardy, even if only temporarily, which can create additional hardships, personal and professional alike. A 31-year-old man could be facing similar consequences after he was recently accused of drunk driving in New York.
Countless individuals in New York and elsewhere have been pulled over for failing to wear a seat belt at some point in their lives. While for many this may only involved a warning, others have faced additional charges following the suspicion of drug possession. A 31-year-old man is facing multiple charges after he was allegedly found in possession of drugs and firearms during a recent traffic stop.
Criminal allegations often pit the words of one person against another. In some cases, all it takes is one phone call informing authorities of an alleged crime, and a person could be under investigation, which can be a stressful and daunting process on its own. A former superintendent at a New York City school district has recently been arrested following allegations of sex offenses involving a co-worker.
