Illinois teen faces DUI charge after accident

Many people do not realize the many rights that are afforded to us as inhabitants of this country. Of course, most people are aware of the basic rights of freedom of religion and speech, for example, but they could be unaware of the many rights of people suspected or accused of a crime. As a result, some people who face a criminal accusation, including a DUI charge, may be unaware that their rights have been violated. An Illinois teenager will likely need to ensure that all her rights were observed in the events leading up to her arrest as well as throughout the criminal process.

However, it is important that the rights of those accused of a crime, including those charged with murder, are preserved to ensure that the lives of even more people aren’t unjustly harmed. Two men in Illinois will likely be working to ensure that their rights are preserved after they were accused of murdering a man.
