Its that time of year where many are celebrating America’s birthday!! With many of these celebrations, drinking becomes more prevalent.  During the Fourth of July weekend many police departments have a greater police presence on the roads, thereby increasing the possibility and risk of receiving a DWI (Driving while Intoxicated).  As the law requires, you are limited to having a .08 BAC or under while driving.  For many, having a .08 BAC can mean as little as one or two drinks within a one to two-hour span. This is particularly important as the Supreme Court just this week issued an opinion in Birchfield v. North Dakota, wherein police officers are allowed to administer breath tests without a warrant. While there are civil repercussions for refusing to take a breathalyzer, this new ruling can have an effect on the criminal aspect of a DWI which can result in serious consequences to your driving and criminal record.

Therefore, having the right attorney in your corner could mean the world of difference if charged with a DWI.  As such, you want to have an attorney that can wrestle with many of the recent changes to the law regarding the BAC testing process, as well as the science behind such testing, and even the impact the standard three field sobriety tests have on the overall guilt equation and/or retention of one’s driving privileges.  These are the reasons why it is even more important to have counsel with the ability to address these issues, the experience to litigate both aspects of the DWI/DUI equation and an understanding of the forum of a particular case.

Attorney John M. Lynch has been successful with felony DWIs, proving his former training in law enforcement to be extremely useful. Attorney John Lynch and Tania Aldaddah routinely handle DWI/DUI offenses in St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln, Warren, Franklin, Jefferson Counties and many counties throughout the State of Illinois.

Federal charges for synthetic drugs, cannibinoids and cathinones as they are sometimes referred to are now at the forefront of federal prosecutions.  In fact, the Government recent announced a nationwide smack down in the form of prosecutions for alleged manufacturing and distributing analogues or synthetic drugs.  This includes St. Louis with the highly publicized indictment of 30 plus individuals on federal charges connected to the importation, manufactures and nationwide sale of synthetic marijuana and bath salts. Many of these products can be purchased at gas stations and convenience stores.  Attorney John Lynch is educated in the defense of these charges and has successfully navigated his clients through the stressful process of criminal indictment.

What is an analogue or synthetic drug? They are often referred to as “designer drugs.” The Controlled Substance Analogue Enforcement Act of 1986 defines analogue drugs as those where the chemical structure of the synthetic drug is substantially similar to that of controlled illicit substances.  Generally, these analogue drugs have similar effects to stimulant, depressant, or hallucinogenic drugs often experienced with controlled illicit substances that are found in schedule I or II. Bath salts and K2 are just a couple of the most prevalent analogue drugs that you hear about today.   Others include use of legal type products laced with a cannabinoid or cathinone-based  liquid in an effort to achieve the proverbial high.  The problem is that the law surrounding this area of federal criminal charges is vague- meaning ambiguity as to what exactly is the illegality. This is where the Law Offices of John M. Lynch, LLC. can help.  As a trained narcotics investigator and prolific trial attorney, John Lynch and his team have already been called upon to represent individuals and businesses alike.

These types of crimes should not be taken lightly as such federal crimes are inherently more complex in nature, involve serious criminal acts and then the possibility of serious penalties. In fact, in these cases, the penalties that one may face can be just as harsh as those related to the possession or distribution of the actual drug. These cases are especially difficult as they tend to be very technical in nature and may require the expertise of a chemist to analyze substance molecules.  Due to the complex nature of these cases, a keen understanding of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, applicable statute, as well as access to a host of legal resources all are needed to protect your interests.
