DUI Defense Strategies
many ways to defend a DUI case, depending on the circumstances of the case. Law enforcement must have
a probable cause for stopping you. If your driving behavior showed signs
of impairment, there may have been other reasons than intoxication for
its cause. Therefore, the initial arrest can be challenged as a DUI-related
incident or as a probable cause issue.
Field sobriety tests can also be questioned since the results of these are under the arresting
officer's discretion, who may have been biased. These tests can also
be challenged as to their effectiveness.
In proving a DUI, the burden of proof is on the prosecution. Chemical testing can be challenged because all the equipment used must
meet certain requirements, including maintenance and calibration. These
tests can give inaccurate results. If standard procedure for administering
the chemical test was not followed by the arresting officer, this can
also influence the test results.
