Law Enforcement and Common Crimes

Tybee Island is a smaller community with nearly 3,000 residents but still experiences the crimes of larger cities. According to statistics, the city has a much higher than average employment of law enforcement personnel. The number of law enforcement in the city is disproportionally large to the civilian population. Because the crime rate in Tybee Island is lower than both the state and national averages, having too many law enforcement employees could mean officers eager to make arrests or give citations. You do have certain rights when you are charged with a crime and if they are violated by arresting officers, it is possible that the charges could be dropped. For example, some officers will forget to read individuals their Miranda Rights during an arrest.

The most frequent crime that occurs in Tybee Island is theft. In 2010, officials reported that Tybee had 108 crimes involving theft. In addition, as of 2011 there are currently two registered sex offenders living within the city. Despite the small population, crime in this beautiful beachside community does occur. If you have recently been charged with a crime it is important to get the legal help you need. During this stressful time you may feel embarrassed or anxious, you may not want others to know of your charges, and you are most likely stressed about what the future holds. Do not let your emotions or fear prevent you from speaking with an attorney immediately. The firm’s services are completely confidential and the legal team will work with you toward the best possible outcome.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

One too many drinks with friends at The Crab Shack or Tybee Time Sports Bar can definitely put you at risk for being pulled over for driving while intoxicated. The firm frequently helps individuals with charges associated to driving under the influence such as first time DUI, multiple DUI, and felony DUI. The lead attorney has assisted those with charges related to DUI for 25 years and is considered the “DUI Daddy.” Cris Schneider will aggressively defend your rights and take the time to keep you informed of your situation and court procedures. He has been successful in challenging evidence such as field sobriety tests and breath & blood tests.

The legal team can offer you representation through the hearing and trial process as well as at the Department of Driver Services (DDS) hearing. Many people facing a DUI for the first time don't know that in order to retain your driving privileges you must attend a separate hearing with the DDS called the Administrative License Suspension hearing. There is only a 15-day window to schedule your hearing after you received a charge, but it is crucial to do so because this is where you can combat the one year automatic suspension. The Schneider Law Firm can help you with DDS hearings and so much more related to criminal defense. If you have any additional questions or would like to arrange a consultation please contact the firm.
