Building a Defense Against Your Charges
An officer can arrest you on suspicion of DUI if you exhibited any signs
of intoxication, such as slurred speech, slowed motor skills, or trouble
balancing. They will need to prove that these were directly related to
intoxication by having you take field sobriety tests, as well as a chemical test.
While you can legally refuse to take field sobriety tests so long as you
are not an underage driver or have a previous offense on your record,
you must submit to chemical tests or face consequences. Regardless of
whether you took tests or not, I can still build a strong defense around
Depending on the circumstances, I can argue the following in your defense:
- Field sobriety tests are subjective and should not be used as hard evidence
- A chemical test was handled incorrectly
- The breathalyzer machine was not calibrated
- An officer violated your rights in some way
- An illegal search and seizure was conducted
- An officer had no probable or reasonable cause to pull you over
- The results from a chemical test were contaminated
- An officer was not properly trained to give a test
- A breath test was not administered correctly
Even if your BAC was over the legal limit according to tests, if police
did not have a good reason to stop you in the first place, any evidence
gathered in your arrest may be thrown out. Police need to have "reasonable
suspicion" that you were intoxicated as exhibited by reckless driving,
speeding, running a stop sign, or committing some other traffic violation.
