September 8, 2020 How a Simple Drive Can Lead to Misdemeanor Charges…or More. Most of us are good people. We try to follow society’s rules, stay within the law, and behave in acceptable ways. Sure, we may stub our toe once in a while. We may get behind on some payments, let our emotions get the best of us, or may get angered at the actions of others or even let the desire for revenge supersede our normal good judgment. It is when these situations occur it may be prudent to seek the assistance of an attorney who understands how these events can occur, and how they can escalate.

Lennard Nahajski understands and he is here to defend your name, reputation, and your rights. A Simple Drive How quickly can a small issue turn into a big one? Let’s say you are going out for a simple drive. A friend texts asking you to have lunch. Lunch includes some catching up and a few drinks. On the way back home you accelerate through a yellow light. A nearby police officer, however, determined it was red. You verbally protest to the point where the officer resents it and writes a citation. You may be still upset, so by now, the officer determines you may have been drinking. It is not unreasonable to see how a simple issue of going through a yellow light can turn into a DUI, resisting arrest without violence, and perhaps even reckless operation of a motor vehicle. It could get worse, especially if you forgot to get your driver’s license or license plates renewed. The fact is, in a mere 20 or 30 minutes you could face a series of charges, all stemming from a misunderstanding on whether you went through a “red” light or not.
