Drive-by shooting leads to 2 arrests

Federal charges are not to be taken lightly, as they often arise from serious accusations and can be punished severely in the event of conviction. Whether a crime is tried on the state or federal level can depend on a number of factors. Furthermore, while federal penalties are often more severe, this can vary from state to state, depending on the crime. Even so, a federal charge can have severe repercussions for your personal and professional life.

Drug paraphernalia can add to your charges

If you are suspected of involvement in a drug-related offense, you could face a lengthy investigation. This may lead to your home, vehicle and your person being searched or even your friends and family being questioned. Furthermore, if any illegal substances are found, authorities will want to determine whether they belong to you and what your intentions for them are.

What are the penalties for drunk driving?

If you are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in South Carolina, one of your primary concerns may be the potential severity of the penalties you may face if convicted. These can range from fines to jail time and may also include conditions such as the revocation of your driver's license, or the installation of an ignition interlock device within your vehicle. It isn’t a stretch to then imagine how these penalties in turn could affect your professional life and may result in the loss of your job.

White collar charges can seriously harm your reputation

High profile individuals and those in positions of power often find themselves under considerable scrutiny. The slightest mistake may be called into question, however innocent, and motives may be inferred from your every action. Unfortunately, this can have serious repercussions for your personal and professional life. We saw in a previous post how conjecture about a mayor's conduct led him to come under suspicion.
