In theory, defending a DUI may not sound that hard, or at least not that complex.
For instance, perhaps police arrested you because you failed your field sobriety tests or because you failed a breath test at a checkpoint stop. Your situation seems straightforward. So you might be under the impression that you only need to put up token resistance to the prosecution.
But DUI defense takes skill, tenacity and experience. You may be just seeing the tip of the iceberg. Even seemingly simple cases have a not-so-funny way of evolving into complex matters. Subtleties can define or radically alter the DUI defense strategy. You need to answer diverse questions about your arrest and about your case in general:
- Did the arresting officer violate your Constitutional rights?
- What has your Visalia judge ruled in previous cases similar to yours?
- Can you plea down to a wet or dry reckless charge?
