What is Suitable DUI Defense?

Nearly a third of traffic deaths are a result of someone driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. So it’s little wonder that states have been taking DUIs more seriously than ever over the last several years. In fact, because of the nationwide crackdown on driving while under the influence, drunk driving deaths have fallen roughly 57 percent over the last 30 years.

On average, a first-time DUI comes with a fine of $352. In Wyoming, the first-time fine can be as high as $750. But that’s only part of the punishment. An alcohol abuse assessment and/or treatment program – which is required for Wyoming offenders – can cost as much as $650. Other costs, which pile up quickly, can include higher car insurance premiums, impound and towing fees, and license reinstatement fees.

Finally, in Wyoming, even a first-time offense comes with a mandatory 90-day license suspension. A second offense within 10 years comes with a mandatory prison sentence and an 18-month license suspension.

A split-second decision to get behind the wheel of a car or truck after a few drinks can not only be expensive, but deadly. If you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), the sooner you speak with a criminal attorney in our Wyoming office, the better your chances are in fighting the charges. Call us at 307-527-7891 or complete our Free Case Evaluation Form right now for a no-obligation consultation.

Drug Arrests Require Real Legal Help

Despite the fact that its neighboring state, Colorado, has legalized the recreational use of marijuana, Wyoming still has the strictest marijuana laws in the country. In short, marijuana possession in Wyoming is a felony if it involves more than three ounces. Possessing any amount within 500 feet of a school brings an additional charge as well as higher fines. Additionally, Wyoming doesn’t offer any medical marijuana exemptions.

A drug conviction of any type can haunt you for the rest of your life, seriously hindering your career prospects among other things. If you’ve been arrested for any type of drug offense, don’t take any chances with your future. Call 307-527-7891 to meet with an experienced defense lawyer at Burg Simpson Wyoming as soon as possible or fill out our Free Case Evaluation Form so we can get started on clearing your name.

Assault and Domestic Violence in Wyoming

In Wyoming, assault is defined on a sliding scale, based on severity. The first is simple assault, which doesn’t even require physical contact – intent is enough to warrant a charge – and a fine that can be set as high as $750. Other related charges include battery, unlawful contact, and aggravated assault, just to name a few. Any of these charges are major criminal offenses that are unacceptable.

However, any type of assault and/or battery against a household member can seriously raise the stakes. In Wyoming, a household member can be:

  • A current or former spouse.
  • An adult with whom the offender resides or previously resided.
  • A parent or adult child.
  • A person with whom the offender has a child.
  • A person with whom the offender is or has been romantically involved.

These cases can range from misdemeanors to felonies, and all of them can carry a lifetime of stigma and shame. If you’ve been involved in any incident involving assault or domestic violence, get in touch with a criminal defense lawyer in our Wyoming office right away by calling 307-527-7891. You can also fill out a Free Case Evaluation Form here. Don’t speak to anyone without first consulting with experienced legal counsel.
