The DWI Charge and Your Defense
You can be charged with a DUI in several situations: from a blood-alcohol level above .08 to being under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance or mixing alcohol and non-scheduled medication. What you probably do not know is that you can reach, or exceed that limit after consuming as little as three or four drinks. You probably are also unaware that you can be charged with and prosecuted for DUI even if a test of your breath or blood reveals that you are not legally intoxicated. All it takes is the determination of a law enforcement officer that you were driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or any drug, regardless of the amount of alcohol or drugs in your system. The fact that your doctor may have prescribed the drug you were taking makes no difference under the law; you can still be charged and convicted of DUI if you are found to be under the influence of that drug. However, as many ways as there are to have you charged with a DUI, there are even more ways for a lawyer to challenge that charge.
A drunk-driving charge is not indefensible. Being arrested does not mean that you will be convicted. However, in DUI defense, we need to take all the steps necessary to protect your rights and ensure that your life is not forever affected by this charge.
We will take the steps necessary to try to keep your license from being suspended. In preparing to deal with the prosecution, our Louisiana DUI lawyers will gather the evidence related to your DUI defense so that we can present the best argument.
