Law enforcement is always ever vigilant. They are looking constantly for breaches of the legal code. This means that whenever you interact with an officer of the law they are constantly evaluating everything you say and do to determine if any of the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of laws may have been violated. So when you are arrested for DUI, there is a great likelihood that other charges may go along with the original DUI charge. Some of the most common additional charges are possession of an illegal substance or leaving the scene of an accident. Even if you dent a bumper and drive away, you have theoretically committed an offense. It is important at every step in a criminal investigation and prosecution that you have counsel present to protect your rights and fight for your freedoms. If you are questioned or arrested, say nothing until you talk to a qualified and experienced attorney. If you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or charged with DUI or any crime, call The Law Office of C Jordan Handy for aggressive and experienced legal defense.
