Line of Defense
After reviewing your unique case, we can potentially use the following
defense strategies to prove your innocence:
Police officer stopped you illegally.
They must have probable cause before pulling you over, which means they
had to observe you ignoring a traffic law, driving recklessly, speeding,
or committing some other kind of behavior that would warrant them to believe
you were violating the law. If not, then you may be able to have your
charges decreased or dismissed.
Problems with the Breathalyzer. These testing devices have many components to them. They need to be properly
calibrated and cleaned in order to read a person’s BAC level properly.
At the same time, the officer operating the device must know how to properly
administer the test. If not, the test results could be skewed.
Compromises with your blood test sample. If they tested your blood instead of your breath for alcohol content,
there is the potential that your test sample could have been tampered
with, switched out with another sample or contaminated during the testing process.
Improper arrest procedure. Police officers have a certain code of conduct they must adhere to in
order for an arrest to be in line with the law. Were you read your rights?
Were you mistreated by an officer? In cases where the arrest process did
not follow the proper protocol, the charges against you may become invalid.
