The Anatomy of the Typical DUI Arrest
Most people don’t know what their legal rights are, and that makes it likely that they can’t properly defend themselves and avoid the harsh penalties of a conviction that that might end up costing them their driving privileges, job, and personal relationships.
There is much more open to interpretation in a DUI arrest than most realize. Law enforcement officers often base an arrest off of perception and assumption rather than on fact by looking for:
- Physical appearance
- Motorist’s driving pattern
- Field sobriety interpretations
- Results of chemical tests
Your Fullerton CA, DUI lawyer wants you to know that all of those factors that are often immediately taken as evidence are actually debatable.
Our attorneys investigate the factors that law enforcement officers often base their assumptions on and mount a successful defense based on those assumed factors.
One way our lawyers defend the rights someone charged with DUI is to highlight the difference between mental and physical impairment. Just because the prosecution proves physical impairment that doesn’t mean you are guilty.
