Operating A Boat While Intoxicated
Charges of driving while intoxicated (DWI) or public intoxication are usually handled in state court, but if they stem from an incident that occurs on Padre Island National Seashore then the case is handled in federal court. To protect your rights and reputation, it is crucial to have the assistance of a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer who has experience in federal court.
Attorney Mark A. Di Carlo has been providing skilled representation to his clients in Corpus Christi and throughout South Texas in state courts since 1985 and in federal courts since 1986. If you have been cited for DWI, public lewdness or a similar crime while visiting Padre Island National Seashore or in the Corpus Christi area, you can rely on Mr. Di Carlo to be a zealous advocate for your rights and to work hard to obtain the best possible outcome.
When Your Vacation Results In Federal Charges
Tourists and students are often cited for crimes while on vacation that can result in federal criminal charges with the possibility of long-term consequences for their futures, their careers and their criminal records.
Mark Di Carlo seeks possible ways to mitigate these consequences, including challenging whether there was probable cause to stop you, search you or arrest you. He can help you evaluate the case against you based upon officer statements, witnesses, breath tests or blood tests, or your own statements to officers or agents.
Mark defends clients against a variety of offenses that occur on the National Seashore, including:
- Public lewdness
- Public intoxication
- Public indecency
- Illegally taking items from the shore
Mr. Di Carlo can also assist you if you want to plead guilty to the charges. Mark will negotiate the best plea bargain possible so you receive the shortest term of probation, the lowest fine and so on.
