The most important part of an arrest for an accused is to hire a top

Mount Vernon Arrest
Recently, in Mount Vernon a motorist was stopped for driving the wrong
way on the Saw Mill River Parkway also in New Rochelle a man was found
to have driven six miles in the wrong direction on interstate 95. Driving
situations such as these will lead to a police investigation and possible
reckless driving arrests.
In Carmel, New York a man who worked at Putnam Hospital was charged with
the theft of medical supplies. This was the result of a five month investigation.
The man was charged with a
larceny theft, a misdemeanor. The policies of the District Attorney's Offices in
Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess Orange and Rockland Counties are to prosecute
those charged with stealing from an employer as those DA offices consider
such thefts a violation of employment and trust with the employer. It
is critical to defend those charges as soon as possible.
In Carmel Court a man was arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI)
after an accident involving personal property. The police at the scene
conducted an investigation and the accused was taken to the hospital.
White Plains Arrests
In White Plains City Court a man driving a minivan driver was arrested
for a "hit and run" or
Leaving the Scene of an Accident, with personal injuries, after he returned to the scene a short time later.
That charge is a crime and can have serious consequences for one's
license and insurance rates. Such crimes if not properly defended can
open a motorist up to civil liability as well.
In Peekskill City Court a Cortlandt man faces a
felony drug charge after he was found with cocaine during a traffic stop. The police claim
the accused was searching for documents when the officer saw a plastic
bag containing cocaine on the vehicle's floor.
Criminal Defense Lawyer
It is very important to obtain a
top criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Some people, once they learn they are being investigated
by the police, hire a criminal defense attorney to help determine a criminal
defense strategy to even prevent an arrest.

best criminal defense. Usually the earlier the criminal defense lawyer
is hired the more effective they can be at protecting an accused rights.
