Arkansas teacher arrested for DWI is no longer teaching

When there is an arrest for driving while intoxicated in Arkansas, the penalties that the person will face are significant in a legal context. What might not be considered when dealing with the accusations is the impact it will have on the personal and professional life. Since the act of DWI is taken so seriously in the state, law enforcement is vigilant in its attempts to stop and arrest drivers who are under the influence. When an arrest is made, the combination of the allegations and the perception in the community can hinder a person's life. A legal defense is critical to avoid the numerous legal and personal ramifications.

A teacher who was arrested for DWI is no longer teaching in her school district. The woman, 34, had taught language arts. She was stopped in the early morning hours and arrested on multiple charges including DWI, not having proof of insurance, making an improper U-turn, driving left of the center line, and careless driving. The spokesperson for the school district subsequently stated that the woman was no longer teaching. She was released from jail in the mid-afternoon and has a hearing scheduled for late-October.

When charged with DWI, a person can be fearful and concerned about the future. The prospect of jail time, fines, lost driving privileges, raised insurance and other penalties is worrisome enough. When there is the chance that the case can have a negative impact on the person's job, it is made far worse. Fortunately, there are avenues of defense that can be used to combat the charges. It might be that the traffic stop was not made according to the law. The person could have a reasonable excuse for the allegations. A negotiation could reduce the charges. The situation might be such that an acquittal is a legitimate possibility. To avoid the toughest consequences, it is crucial to have legal advice.

A woman who was stopped by law enforcement for several traffic offenses and DWI has also apparently lost her job as a teacher. Given the potential legal penalties and how it is already negatively affecting her work, she must craft a strong DWI defense with help from a law firm that is experienced in assisting those facing these types of charges.
