Having a police officer show up at your door and shove a restraining order in your face can feel like a massive blow. Restraining orders can impact every facet of your life, from where you work to how you get around Omaha to your relationships. Whether it is temporary or permanent, you should take a restraining order seriously and not hesitate to speak to an attorney about how you can fight it.
After being arrested for driving under the influence, you may be looking to keep out of jail, get your license back, and return to your normal life. Here in Nebraska, DUI defendants can plead to lesser charges to avoid the stress of a trial, but you should be aware of all of your options before agreeing to anything a district attorney offers, including a wet reckless plea.
No one expects to get arrested, and most people are not aware of how the justice system will proceed outside of some loose ideas from TV or movies. While you may be worried about finding an attorney and preparing for a trial, the first step is getting you home to your family so you can get ready for your case. In Nebraska, this means posting bail, but this process can be complex.
The biggest concern on your mind after being arrested for drug possession is avoiding jail time. This may mean building an aggressive defense to win your case at trial, or negotiating a plea deal to receive a reduced sentence for a lesser charge. However, here in Omaha, you may have other options, such as entering a diversion program for substance abuse.
Every driver dreads seeing police lights in the rearview mirror and hearing that fateful siren. While we grow up learning to respect police officers, there is no stopping the anxiety that comes with being pulled over. You don’t want to say or do anything that can be misconstrued as guilty and lead to your arrest. However, you should always remember that you do have rights, and there are ways to diffuse a stressful situation.
