Consequences of a DUI conviction

Every person who decides to get behind the wheel of a vehicle is expected to follow the laws of the road, no matter where they are driving. Of course, going the speed limit, obeying signs and being mindful of other drivers on the road are all important, but you are also expected to avoid doing anything that can impair your driving abilities, like drinking. Should you be caught drinking and driving and are charged with a DUI,< you will be faced with various consequences.

Dealing with mortgage fraud charges

Mortgage fraud generally refers to illegal schemes and misrepresentation of data on mortgage documents. Lying on the forms or impersonating someone else on the forms could result in severe penalties. Mortgage fraud can be carried out for housing purposes or monetary purposes. The sentencing depends on what type of mortgage fraud has been committed.

Dealing with identity theft charges

The act of obtaining someone's identity or personal information through deceptive means is considered as identity theft. In most identity theft cases, this information is used for personal financial gain. A person's personal and economic data can be used for your own benefit in several ways, and all states have statutes to protect their citizens against identity theft.

Factors that may impact the severity of a DUI charge

When facing a DUI charge, the prosecutors may decide the type or severity of the charge depending on the circumstances. Certain DUI charges are considered as minor and can be classified as misdemeanors, but others are more dangerous. Felony DUI’s can create a lot of problems for you in the future. If you are found guilty of a felony DUI, you might have to pay hefty fines and spend some time in prison. A felony DUI charge is complicated, and the prosecutor must comply with specific regulations before charging someone with a felony DUI which vary by state.

Educators can be deeply impacted by a DUI conviction

As an educator, such as a teacher or coach, you know one thing to be true: Your students and/or players look up to you at all times. For this reason, you have to hold yourself to high standards. Unfortunately, there are times when people make mistakes outside of work. If this happens, such as being charged with driving under the influence, it could have a negative impact on your career.
