DUI Cases Can Carry Severe Penalties

When it comes to traffic offenses, driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is certainly one of the most harshly penalized. Attempting to operate a vehicle after consuming alcohol is extremely dangerous due to the driver's reduced awareness and reflexes. Nevertheless, countless people step behind the wheel every day while intoxicated. According to KDOT statistics, over 65,000 accidents occurred in the year 2008, over 3,300 of which involved alcohol.

In an attempt to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities caused by drunk driving, law enforcement is often quick to make arrests and press charges for DUI. This means that it is possible to be falsely accused by an overzealous officer.

Vastly Experienced in DUI Cases

A member of our skilled legal team could help you find out how to beat a DUI, whether it is by arguing police misconduct in field sobriety tests, or faulty blood alcohol content (BAC) level testing. It is also important to keep in mind that a second DUI offense will result in harsher penalties, and subsequent convictions are usually felony DUI charges.

Aspects of cases involving DUIs we can handle that other firms might not be familiar with include:

DUI Defense Lawyer in Johnson County, Kansas

At our law firm, our knowledge of the ins and outs of DUI laws has allowed us to handle hundreds of DUI cases throughout Johnson County, KS, including Olathe, Overland Park, Gardner, Leawood, Shawnee, Mission, and Lenexa. We have significant experience in breath tests and blood tests, measuring BAC, and we have been trained in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing. DUI defense is the primary legal focus of our criminal defense lawyer, Jerry Wallentine.

Recently, the Supreme Court reclarified that previous decision in the Ryce case. K.S.A. 8-1025 is indeed Unconstitutional. If you were charged with refusing to take the Intoxilyzer at the police station, you likely have a solid defense. However, most prosecutors quit pursuing those charges after the initial Ryce decision from last year.
