A Grammy award-winning rapper is facing felony charges regarding an alleged fight that occurred at a strip club last year. Cardi B is charged with two counts of felony attempted assault for her alleged role in the fight in New York. Her criminal defense representation claims she did not harm any one, but she is set to appear at an arraignment the week of June 24 in Queens.
A DWI is one of the most common criminal charges a driver can face. You may know someone or even several people who have gone through this unpleasant and embarrassing experience.

A drunk driving conviction, even for a first offense, can bring you a lifetime of complications, including financial struggles, professional setbacks and personal frustrations.
