Anyone who is going to head out to a party this weekend needs to have a plan for getting home after the event is over. Unfortunately, not everyone will do this. Some people will assume that they are sober enough to drive home. This might lead to a police officer pulling you over if you are showing any signs of intoxication when you are on the road.
Police officers are trained to watch for signs of impairment. If they spot any, they can pull you over for the suspicion of drunk driving. Once they do, you will be asked to take a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test. You may be asked to do a standardized field sobriety test (SFST). All the tests you take are to help the officer determine whether you are too intoxicated to drive or not.
We know that you didn’t think your fun weekend would end with you in a jail cell. This should be a call to action for you. It is time to get your defense plan started. You can’t wait because these cases have quite a few time-sensitive aspects, so you have to plan to address those swiftly. We are here to help you.
One thing to remember as you are facing the charge is that you don’t have the burden of proof. The prosecution has to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that you committed the crime of driving drunk. If there is a way to poke holes in the prosecution’s claims, you can use those as the backbone of your criminal case. We can help you strategize about your defense.
