Analyzing how quickly alcohol can leave one's system

Being convicted of driving while intoxicated in Houston can not only leave one facing potentially harsh criminal penalties, but it can also carry with it a stigma that affects one's relationships, social standing, or even his or her career.

The hidden consequences of a misdemeanor conviction

Some misdemeanor convictions involve only the payment of fines.
