Know Your Rights After Being Arrested for DUI

A driving under the influence (DUI) charge is one of the most common criminal offenses in the United States. From the outside it may seem like a DUI is a fairly straightforward case—if an individual was caught drinking and driving, they’re guilty—but the truth is that there are numerous factors that go into these cases and you do have a chance to defend yourself from the penalties.

DUI Defense Strategies

At the Sanders Law Firm, LLC, our Charleston criminal defense attorneys can review your case and explain your options. We are on our client’s side, meaning we take a very different approach to examining the case than law enforcement or the prosecution does. Instead of focusing only on what makes you appear guilty, our team points out the details that the prosecution willfully ignores in order to strengthen their case.

There are several factors to a DUI charge that should be examined by your defense team, such as:

  • Why were you pulled over? A police officer needs probable cause to pull a driver over. If you were not driving recklessly or speeding, then the initial cause of the arrest may be brought into question.
  • How did the officer determine sobriety? Sobriety tests, by themselves, are not hard and fast proof that an individual was intoxicated while operating a vehicle. Even though blood shot eyes, dizziness and balance issues can indicate intoxication, these symptoms may also indicate the presence of some other medical condition.
  • Are there any witnesses? Was anyone with you before you got into your car the night of the arrest? They may be able to attest that you did not appear intoxicated when you entered your vehicle.
  • Do you take prescription drugs? There are several medications that can influence the results of a sobriety test. It’s possible that your results were skewed because of a drug that is perfectly safe and legal to take before operating a vehicle.

These are just a few of the ways a DUI charge can be attacked. It is unlikely that a public defender will have the time or resources to investigate all the factors of your arrest. A DUI conviction can seriously affect your future, so make sure you have a dedicated Charleston DUI defense attorney in your corner ready to fight for your rights.
