Drunk driving charges filed against alleged hit-and-run driver

Drivers in New York who face criminal charges will likely do whatever they can to avoid a conviction. A conviction on drunk driving charges can have horrible effects on anyone's life. It can jeopardize employment, good name, driving privileges and more.

A 29-year-old New York man was recently arraigned following his arrest by Yorktown police. According to a police report, officers responded to two accidents shortly before 2:45 on a recent Tuesday. In both cases, the vehicle that crashed into other cars was reported to have left the crash scenes.

Upon investigation, police determined that it was one vehicle that was involved in both crashes. Reportedly, the car was later located, and police allege a Mahopac man drove it. Officers further claimed that the driver was under the influence of alcohol in each of the two accidents and that he was driving on a revoked driver's license due to a previous conviction. Traffic infractions, circumventing the interlock device and leaving an accident scene with property damage were added to the charges.

Most drivers facing drunk driving charges retain the services of an experienced New York criminal defense attorney immediately. A lawyer can protect the accused driver's rights throughout the legal proceedings and prepare a defense strategy that will scrutinize the methods used by police to identify mistakes, technical errors or misconduct. The attorney can also negotiate with the prosecutor on the client's behalf, and advocate for him or her in court, all while focused on achieving the most favorable outcome possible.
