Circumstances matter in drunk driving defenses

In our previous blog post, we discussed the hassle of ignition interlock devices. While these devices do serve an important role in preventing drunk driving, they still place a burden on the people who have to use them. We know that you don't want a drunk driving charge to impact your entire life. While we can't make the charge just disappear, we can work to get your defense together so you can fight the charge.

The reasons that a person has for driving drunk could be anything from being unable to find another way home or not realizing that you were too intoxicated to drive. The reason why you drove drunk might be very important in your case; however, before you officially state the reason as part of your defense, we need to evaluate it.

In drunk driving cases, there are several things that might have an impact on the suitability of the charges. For example, we can find out if there were any civil rights violations in your case. This might apply if search and seizure methods weren't in line with what is required by law. Evidence that was collected unlawfully might not be able to be a part of the prosecution's case against you.

As we go through the circumstances of your case, we will point out factors that might be important for your defense. You should remember that the prosecution has the burden of proof, while the defense only has to cast reasonable doubt on the allegations being made against the defendant. This isn't always an easy thing to do, but it is crucial that we work as hard as possible to do just that.
