Dina Lohan Arrested for Charges of Drunk Driving

(PRWEB) October 21, 2013

TV personality and actress Dina Lohan, better known as the mother of starlet Lindsay Lohan, was arrested last week on charges of drunk driving. Attorney Dane Johnson says the older Lohan could face jail time.

Lohan was clocked racing 77 mph in a 55 zone and had more than twice the legal blood alcohol limit, according to CBS News (09.13.2013). Police released her the next day, but Johnson, the founder of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, says the battle isn’t over.

This is her first offense, but New York law still allows up to one year of jail time, Johnson said. She’s going to need to fight this one and she’ll need a good lawyer to do it.

CBS reported that police say that Lohan complained she was hurt during the arrest, but they called paramedics who found that she was injury-free. There is no sign that Lohan tried to resist arrest.

Her license is automatically suspended, Johnson said. Even a first time DUI offense is treated very harshly these days.

Johnson said that other penalties Lohan could face include fines, an ignition interlock device, and mandatory alcohol abuse treatment.

The drama between this mother and daughter will be dragged out in the media, Johnson said. But a judge can’t punish a mother for the sins of the daughter.

US DOJ Wont Challenge State Marijuana Laws, But Arizona Police and Prosecution Warn Motorists Can Still Be Arrested for Drug DUI Charges; Tempe DUI Lawyer Explains

Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

FBI 2012 Uniform Crime Reports (UCR), released last week, revealed that 658,000 were arrested for non-dangerous marijuana use or possession; and 521,196 arrests were for violent crimes such as homicide, robbery and aggravated assault. These statistics suggest that more state and federal resources are being used to arrest and prosecute non-dangerous marijuana charges than dangerous or violent crimes, said Tempe criminal defense lawyer James Novak.

The U.S. Government has acknowledged that each year billions of dollars in expenditures, law enforcement, and criminal justice, and incarceration costs are being used to prosecute non-dangerous Marijuana offenses; and that resources are better used combating and prosecuting violent crimes. This is perhaps once more reason why the Department of Justice has decided to take liberalization a step further by not interfering with marijuana laws in respective states, Novak said.

The decision, however, does come with precaution for the public and a strict message to the legalized Marijuana states. Federal prosecutors made it clear they plan to ensure persons and businesses are in compliance with their state laws. This includes making certain that proper safeguards are in place to keep marijuana out of the hands of children and minors in those states; and to make sure the marijuana is not rerouted to a non-legalized state.
