Social media is also an easy way to catch people in lies about their relationship status, travel plans, or spending habits. And all of these issues may persuade a judge during a divorce settlement.

Minnesota's drunk driving statutes use a complex array of aggravating factors that may be used to enhance a charge for allegedly driving while impaired to a higher level of offense.

However, a first-time offender may be charged with third-degree DWI if law enforcement or prosecutors allege that an aggravating factor was present at the time of the offense; a third-degree offense is a gross misdemeanor.
