DUI Defense


If you've ever been arrested for DUI in Sacramento, the first and foremost thing you should do is speak with skilled lawyer who has an excellent track record of successfully representing DUI clients. The first step in building a solid and formidable defense is speaking with an experienced and aggressive DUI lawyer. You can inquiry your case and question the details surrounding your case. A skilled attorney may be to discover test results or police errors that will help you in your defense. In some situations, police officer mistakes or errors may lead to the dismissal or reduction of your indictment. Frequent errors made by police officers include:

Police Officers not having sufficient Probable Cause: Before police officials can create a DUI traffic stop, they must have enough probable cause as stated in the California Penal Code §836(a). If police officials don't have adequate probable cause, they can't legally create the DUI traffic halt.

Failure to Read Miranda Rights: In certain situations, a law enforcement official may fail to read a driver their Miranda Rights before an arrest is made. Miranda Rights are read to notify the person of their right to remain silent, right to an attorney, and the right to have an attorney appointed to them. If the officer failed to read the driver their Miranda Rights, anything the driver said before their arrest cannot be permissible in court.

Inaccurate Field Sobriety Test Results: If the person is suspected of being intoxicated while driving, they may be asked to execute a sequence of field sobriety tests for the law enforcement official.The law enforcement official may determine if the person passed or failed their field sobriety test. While the person performs the field sobriety test the police officer must closely monitor the person's balance, coordination, and motor skills. Additionally, a person can execute poorly during the field sobriety tests for numerous reasons besides being intoxicated. These reasons may include medical conditions that impair the person's coordination, poor instructions, poor lighting, and slippery road conditions.
