About DWI/DUI Cases
Driving while intoxicated, or driving under the influence, is, unfortunately, a common criminal charge. The crime committed is operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including prescription drugs. Complete intoxication is not required. The level of alcohol or drugs in the driverís body must simply be enough to prevent him from thinking clearly, or driving safely. State laws specify the levels of blood alcohol content at which a person is presumed to be under the influence.

About Criminal Cases
Criminal charges can be deadly to oneís record. The most common criminal charges include DUI, assault/battery, drug possession, burglary, and theft/larceny. Other charges can include (but are not limited to) arson, aggravated assult/battery, bribery, child abandonment, disorderly conduct and domestic violence.
Police officers and prosecutors initiate criminal cases. After an arrest has been made, the arrest report is sent to a prosecutor. It is the prosecutorís job to initiate (and prosecute) the criminal case.
Arrest reports summarize the events leading up to arrests and provide important details such as dates, times, locations, weather conditions, witnesses, etc.
The prosecutor will either decide that the case should be charged as a misdemeanor and file a complaint with the trial court; or decide that the case should be charged as a felony and bring evidence before citizens serving as grand jurors, who will decide what charges, if any, to file.
Prosecutors can file charges on all crimes for which the police arrested a suspect. Or, they can file charges that are more or less severe than the charges leveled by the police.
