Drinking and driving is an offense that occurs frequently, and the penalties for conviction can be harsh. If you are pulled over, and you have had a few drinks, the most important thing you should remember is your right to remain silent. One very detrimental element in any criminal case is a confession of any kind. But unfortunately, you may already be past that point. If you have already been arrested and charged with an offense, then here are three easy tips for you to follow in order to help prevent any further damage do your case.
- Retain the legal services of a Denton criminal defense lawyer from Wheeler Law Office as soon as possible.
