Tennessee man faces second vehicle-related charges

According to reports, a Tennessee man was charged on Aug. 28 for felony reckless endangerment. The charges related to an accident that occurred in February of this year. In the February accident, the man was driving a car with a woman and a juvenile. He was allegedly driving 70 mph on the night of Feb. 14. He lost control of the vehicle and ended up in the ditch.

Avoiding profiling: understanding risk factors of sexual crime

Expert organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have published lists of factors that can increase the chance that someone will engage in sexual violence.

Investigative work can help defend against DUI charges

Not being drunk at the time of a drunk driving stop is probably the best defense possible when facing drunk driving charges. If you can prove that you have not, in fact, consumed any alcohol prior to getting behind a wheel, you have a very strong defense against the charges. Even if you did consume alcohol, there are possible defense strategies that can defeat or help reduce charges and sentencing.
