Certain times of the year individuals, who might otherwise not spend a lot of time partying, go out to celebrate. For some, one of those times could be coming up. Cinco de Mayo (translated as the 5th of May) is next Tuesday. While some people will celebrate the day on the 5th others will head out this weekend for related festivities. The consumption of alcohol is often a part of those celebrations.
It is possible that some of those who head out over the course of the next few days to celebrate Cinco de Mayo could end up behind the wheel driving after consuming too much alcohol. They could also find that they are pulled over and placed under arrest for operating while intoxicated.
Often individuals who find themselves in this situation have little or no experience with the criminal justice system. This can leave them afraid of the process and unsure of how to proceed. This fear and uncertainty should not prevent you from taking action however. In addition to the penalties that could be assessed if someone is convicted of OWI, there could be collateral consequences as well. Accordingly it is vital to work with a lawyer who has handled cases of this nature in the past.
