Shaking the Foundation of DWI Charges

By Zendeh Del Law Firm  Nov. 10, 2010 2:55p

No two DWI cases are the same. There are unique issues that must be addressed in order for an attorney to build an aggressive strategy that effectively shakes the foundation of the prosecuting attorney's case against you. This is most often accomplished by thoroughly investigating the matter, conducting an independent analysis of test results when possible and cross-examining the arresting officer to reveal mistakes or rights violations.

There are a number of different procedural or evidentiary issues that may impact a case of this kind. Discovering and exposing these may entirely alter the course of a DWI case. Some potential examples may include:

  • An initial police stop made without probable cause;
  • Insufficient grounds for the arrest of a driver;
  • Improper administration of a breath test, blood test or field sobriety test;
  • Improper handling or mixing of a blood sample;
  • Improper grading of field sobriety tests;
  • A breath test device that was improperly maintained or calibrated;
  • A breath or blood test administered by an unqualified or untrained individual; or
  • Factors unrelated to intoxication that led to poor performance on field sobriety tests.

Drunk driving cases can become highly technical in nature due to the fact that chemical test results usually support the prosecuting attorney's case against a driver. It is important for a lawyer to understand the proper procedure involved with these tests as well as the innate faults that lie with these.
