Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer in New York. People fill the weekend with picnics, friendly get-togethers and remembrances for fallen soldiers. Often the picnics and other gatherings involve alcohol. People are not always aware of how the consumption of alcohol can impair their judgment behind the wheel. Tragic accidents can result and drivers also run the risk of being cited for a DWI.
Being charged with robbery in New York can be cause for alarm on many levels. What are the long- and short-term implications for one's future? What does it do to one's employment options if one faces jail time? What are one's rights while facing criminal law charges? All of this and more may be going through the mind of a man from the Wellsboro area who was recently arrested and charged with burglary and vehicle theft.
