It’s important to hire a local Lacey City DUI attorney who knows what the best defenses to DUI are. These defenses may include:
Driving Defense – If you were charged with DUI even though the officer never actually saw you driving, it may be possible to stop a conviction and even get the case thrown out due to lack of evidence.
Arrest Defense – If the officer who pulled you over had no good reason to pull you over in the first place, the arrest and subsequent charges may be seen as inadmissible.
Witnesses – It’s possible to bring witnesses who say you were not drinking prior to driving as evidence.
Providing Alternative Explanations – If your behavior made you appear as though you were intoxicated, it’s possible that your appearance was caused by something other than alcohol. For example, maybe you were suffering from lack of sleep, or the officer made the field sobriety test too confusing.
All these defenses to DUI are perfectly valid in Lacey City and it’s up to you and your DUI attorney to decide which is best for your case.
It’s also important to be familiar with what the possible punishments are for DUI in Lacey City. A first offender can face a license suspension for up to a year and up to a $5,000 fine.
