If you are charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, you will be scared about what the future holds. You know you are faced with legal concerns, but this doesn't mean you have to roll over and go through the motions while the court in Colorado decides your fate.
Here is what you need to do: Consider the many types of drunk driving defense that have helped others in your situation escape serious trouble with the law.
Believe it or not, there are many common drunk driving defenses. These include but are not necessarily limited to:
-- Improper stop. This is a claim that the officer did not have probable cause for stopping a vehicle.
-- Administration of a field sobriety test. Is it possible that a field sobriety test was improperly administered?
-- Accuracy of a standard breathalyzer test.
-- Increasing blood alcohol concentration level. This is a claim that the blood alcohol concentration level was below the legal limit when you were pulled over, but later increased because the alcohol had yet to fully absorb into the system.
It is possible to rely on only one of these drunk driving defense strategies. It is also possible to call on multiple strategies in an attempt to convince the court that you should not have been charged.
There is no way to say which drunk driving defense is best. The reason for this is that every situation is different. You have to take your personal situation into consideration. Only then can you make a decision as to which defense strategy has the most chance of success.
