Drug-related crimes are a relatively big problem in the Peoria area. Recently, a 32-year-old man was arrested and charged with several drug crimes that have both state and federal consequences. This individual stands to lose a lot if convicted. An experienced criminal defense attorney will be able to help him achieve the best outcome possible for his circumstances.

DUI charges following harrowing accident involving school bus

An Illinois driver is facing criminal charges after a recent motor vehicle accident. The woman is accused of DUI after the van she was driving hit the side of a school bus while traveling along the highway. The bus was carrying students to a high school basketball game at the time of the accident, and the impact caused the vehicle to roll over onto its side.

What rights do you have during a traffic stop?

Broadly speaking, our criminal defense law firm recommends cooperating with police during a traffic stop. However, cooperation does not mean waiving one’s rights. The Fourth Amendment protects against unreasonable, warrantless searches and seizures. Accordingly, a driver does not have to consent to his or her vehicle being searched, absent other circumstances.
