College volleyball player facing drunk driving charges

Criminal charges related to alleged drunk driving are serious charges. A University o Texas Austin volleyball player is facing drunk driving accusations and charges. The 20-year-old standout volleyball player was initially pulled over for driving without her headlights on a following too closely. The woman allegedly admitted to drinking two shots of vodka with soda 6 hours earlier. The woman also allegedly smelled of alcohol and failed a field sobriety test; a breathalyzer test was not administered according to the police report.

The young woman spent the night in jail following her arrested and was released on bail. The volleyball player's coach acknowledged that he was familiar with the situation and charges and that it was being addressed internally. Drunk driving charges are serious charges an can have a significant negative impact on the life and future of the accused individual. Criminal charges in general can impact the personal and professional lives of the accused individual and may impact educational opportunities as well.

From the beginning of the arrest process to the end, it may be possible to challenge criminal charges and evidence against the accused individual based on the situation and circumstances. It is important that police follow proper procedures when making an arrest and if those procedures were not followed, it may be possible to challenge the charges the accused individual is facing and the evidence being used to prove those charges.

It is valuable for individuals accused of committing a crime such as drunk driving to understand their criminal defense rights. Criminal defense rights are designed to protect individuals accused of crimes which is why understanding what they are and how to enforce them is so important to an individual who has been accused of a crime.
