Although getting involved in a DUI usually starts with an officer suspecting (within reason) that someone has been drinking before driving, and only progresses into a DUI arrest when the officer has come to believe that the driver’s driving is affected by being impaired by alcohol, it should be noted that an arrest doesn’t always have to end in a conviction.
DUI Charges and Over 80 have to be proven beyond reasonable doubt before someone can be convicted. This means that anyone arrested for the said charges should be properly investigated and the findings recorded to prove that they are indeed truly guilty of the charges against them.
Things Can Get Tricky
There will be times when a person can get arrested for a DUI because of suspicion or circumstantial evidence. For example, if a person has been observed to be slurring his speech, walking unsteadily, driving in a weird or suspicious way, or have liquor in the vehicle. All of these details can arouse suspicion, but it should be noted that they do not prove that someone is indeed intoxicated while driving. This is where technicalities come in and why the arresting officer will have to get the arrested individual to give a breath sample at the station to determine their blood alcohol level. However, even a recorded blood alcohol level can be countered with technicalities which a DUI lawyer can come up with as part of the case’s defence.
Whether it is your first time to be charged with a DUI or not, your first step should be to get your case legally sorted out with the help of a DUI lawyer. If one or a few details leading to one’s arrest for a DUI or a charge of Over 80 can be utilized to disprove that the arrested individual is indeed guilty, the charges will have to be dropped and the person will be acquitted.
