When an individual is pulled over, they could face a traffic violation. In some cases, a police office may find reason to search a vehicle, which could lead to additional charges that could be criminal.
Physicians generally have the public trust. When an individual is in pain, he or she visits the doctor to find relief. Any prescriptions that are given are believed to help, not harm the patient. One Georgia physician, however, is having his reputation called into question after facing drug charges.
While driving on the highway, every driver hopes to never hear a police siren indicating the need to pull over. Traffic stops can be a source of great stress for both the driver and passengers in the vehicle. If the officer decides to go beyond a routine traffic stop and request a search of the vehicle or the driver, there may be concerns that the constitutional rights of the individuals are being violated.
Being charged with a crime could be very detrimental to the reputation of the accused. This is especially true if the defendant is young and has past charges on their record. In order to reduce the impact of allegations, the accused should seek to defend the charges. This could provide them with the opportunity to reduce the charges against them or possibly have them dropped altogether.
