Mother charged with DUI for single-vehicle wreck

Police in Oklahoma recently arrested a woman who they say was under the influence of alcohol when she lost control of her vehicle. Her child was apparently in the vehicle at the time. She is facing multiple criminal charges, including possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment by DUI. She is currently out of police custody on $3,000 bond.

On April 30, 2019, somebody contacted police about a single-vehicle crash in which the driver had ended up in a ditch. The individual told police that they spotted a woman fleeing the scene while holding a child. According to that witness, the woman appeared to be intoxicated and was having trouble staying upright.

Juvenile delinquency: 10-year-old charged in low-speed car chase

Police in Oklahoma recently arrested a child they say led them on a car chase. The young boy was arrested and transported to a juvenile facility, and is now charged with misdemeanor charges for trying to avoid the police and traffic violations. Dealing with matters involving juvenile delinquency can be sensitive in nature, particularly in regard to especially young children who still have their whole lives ahead of them.

According to officers, early in the day a 10-year-old boy had become angry with his aunt and locked himself in her vehicle. As the aunt was trying to persuade the young boy to exit the vehicle, he reportedly drove off. His aunt then contacted police to let them know that her vehicle had been taken by the child.

Police file DUI charges against woman driving on rim of tire

A woman who was reportedly driving on the rim of one of her tires was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. Police say this is the woman's second DUI offense, and she is also facing charges for transporting an open container, operating a car with defective tires and driving without a driver's license in her possession. Her bail was set at $2,000.

The Oklahoma police officers who initiated the traffic stop said that they heard the car approaching before they saw it. The 28-year-old woman behind the wheel then drove past the police officers on the rimmed tire, at which point they pulled the driver over. She allegedly admitted to having two shots of tequila and then performed poorly during a Standardized Field Sobriety Test. Police say they also found a cup containing a margarita inside her vehicle.

Drunk driving tests not bulletproof

Police often use various tests on drivers accused of drunk driving to measure impairment, from field sobriety tests to blood tests. As such, people might think a DUI charge is an open-and-shut case. It’s not.

There are a lot of variables when it comes to impairment tests, which can affect the charges.

New study shows benefits of expungement laws

Once you are in the criminal justice system, it is difficult to ever fully be free of it. Even if you serve your sentence and do not commit any additional offenses, your criminal record may continue to negatively impact your life for years to come.

Thankfully, some criminal records can be removed from public view through the process of expungement. Each state has its own expungement laws, and you can read more about Oklahoma’s statutes on our expungement page. In today’s post, we’ll examine some research on why expungement is good for individuals and society as a whole.
