Nevada laws designed to protect the safety of children are some of the most persistently enforced in the state. Law enforcement officers are adamant about arresting those accused of injuring, exploiting or harming children. The term child abuse often is used to describe several different scenarios, but what legally constitutes the offense?
DUI (Driving under the Influence) can be an extremely hazardous and negligent act. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 33,808 people died from alcohol related crashes in 2009. That averages out to roughly one alcohol-impaired driving death every 50 minutes. While new studies have reported a decrease in cases of DUI accidents and fatalities, it is still a behavior that can have a significant impact on the lives of others.
