Criminal defense: 2 arrested after alleged drunk-driving crash

A driver was arrested following a single-vehicle accident in New Rochelle, and her passenger was later arrested as well, according to local sources. New York police placed both women in custody after they say they found the driver to be intoxicated. Charges are pending against both women, and they are expected to appear in New Rochelle court on June 15, though it is not clear whether either woman has retained a criminal defense attorney at this time. 

According to the report, around 11:50 p.m. the night of Aprill 22, a single-vehicle accident took place. The details of the accident were not included in the report, but no injuries were sustained by the 26-year-old female driver, the 27-year-old female passenger, or any bystanders. However, police on the scene said the driver, who was from out of state, was intoxicated. They did not include their rationale for this decision in the report, nor was it mentioned whether roadside sobriety tests were conducted. 

The woman she was with reportedly attempted to interfere with the arrest and was also subsequently arrested. Both women were taken to a local processing facility, where the driver's blood was tested. Apparently, her blood alcohol content was found to be more than three times the legal limit. As a result, she has been charged with aggravated DUI. Her passenger was charged with obstructing governmental administration. 

A drunk driving charge can fundamentally change the accused person's life, from losing a driver's license to limiting employment opportunities to possibly facing jail time. This is why the burden of proof lies with New York prosecutors to provide compelling evidence of her alleged crime. Her criminal defense representation will work to build a case against the charges, taking into consideration all the facts of the criminal case including her treatment during her arrest.
