In a recent blog post, this blog discussed the case of a woman that was arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants. In that case, the woman was facing drug changes and DUII charges for being found in a car with illegal drugs and prescription drugs. Police claim that the woman was under the influence of these drugs while behind the wheel.
Many people may be surprised by this story. They may think that people can only face criminal charges for driving under the influence of alcohol, not drugs, especially prescription drugs. They may wonder -- can people face DUII charges for prescription or illegal drug use.
