Defenses Against DUI: Part 5

It is important to understand that there are many ways to defend DUI charges. There are a number of constitutional and statutory challenges that attorney Todd Coolidge looks for when he prepares a DUI defense.

In all DUI cases, the main evidence used by the State to gain a conviction is the alcohol or drugs inside that person’s body. That evidence is being destroyed as time progresses. For that reason, all people arrested for DUI have a due process right to gather their own independent evidence. This includes being released to take photos of an accident scene, get an independent blood or urine test, getting one’s temperature taken, or having someone record how the person walks or talks.The DUI can be dismissed or evidence of the chemical test can be suppressed if an officer interferes with this right.
