When you are charged with a DWI, you face fines, jail time, driver's license suspension and community service; therefore, it is important to defend yourself. Fortunately police often make mistakes giving you defenses against your charge. Experienced DWI lawyers know of these defenses and are skilled at employing them to get a not guilty verdict on your behalf. Therefore if you have been charged with a DWI, it is urged that you contact a lawyer.
Defenses Available against a DWI Charge
Most defenses against DWI charges stem from police mistakes. Here are some:
- The policeman stops you on the basis of an anonymous phone call. He must know who it was who called.
- A policeman stops you on a hunch with no objective reason.
- The technician fails to follow the Department of Public Safety's rules in administrating the alcohol testing.
- The policeman stops you for a violation you did not commit.
- The policeman stops you for driving too slow but can name no specific code violation you violated.
- You are arrested on the basis of your statements alone with no other evidence of your guilt.
- The policeman stops you for no other reason than to check driver license and car registration.
