Defense Strategies for DUI in Olathe
Olathe DUI Attorney with Experience
After being arrested for
DUI, you may feel overwhelmed or discouraged about your defense. Perhaps you
have failed to pass a breath or blood test and think that there is no
way you could fight your charges. Don't lose hope! Even when it comes to
BAC testing, an Olathe DUI attorney from Martin & Wallentine, LLC could review
your case and help you determine the right defense strategy for your situation.
Unshakeable Defense Against DUI Charges
When you are first pulled over under suspicion of driving while intoxicated,
keep these tips in mind: be polite, follow instructions, and
never admit to drinking. An officer can only arrest you if there are adequate
grounds to believe that you are intoxicated, so provide as little evidence
as possible. If you are compliant and show no hesitancy to obey the officer's
instructions, they may be less suspicious of you.
Even after you have already been arrested and charged with DUI, there may
still be defense strategies that you could use. If you failed one or more of the
field sobriety tests, it could be that the officer conducted the tests incorrectly. There are
specific steps that officers are required to take when conduction field
sobriety tests in order for a legal DUI arrest to be made, which provides
you with an opportunity for defense should they make a mistake. It may
also be that you failed these tests due to a disability that affects your
vision, balance, motor skills or memory. This could affect the validity
of your DUI arrest.
As for BAC tests such as breathalyzers, blood tests and urine tests, even
these may be disputed. Breathalyzer machines are touchy and, unless they
are correctly calibrated and used every single time, the reading could
be incorrect. Blood tests and urine tests may also be subject to misadministration,
tampering or malpractice.
