Defenses against DUI Charges
Tests used to determine the alcohol level in a driver are not particularly reliable. Administration of the tests occurs in an uncontrolled environment on the side of a road next to the pulled over car. Many of the tests are at night when it is dark outside and visibility is limited. A nervous driver may be mistaken for a drunken driver and unable to pass all steps of a sobriety test. In the case of a traffic collision, people may automatically jump to the conclusion that it was due to a drunken driver when other factors may have been the cause of an accident. Defense has the right to challenge evidence presented by prosecution in a DUI charge and can include the following:
- Sobriety and blood alcohol test accuracy
- Arrest procedures
- Witness statements
A DUI conviction can mean jail time, fines, probation, driver's license suspension, community service, alcohol classes and other penalties the judge issues at sentencing. Many factors can affect the degree of punishment such as a light sentence for a first time offense or multiple DUI offenses resulting in maximum penalties.
