3 sources of DUI case evidence that could help your defense

Technology has come a long way in recent years, and although police are using new technology to convict DUI defendants who might not have been convicted otherwise -- some DUI defendants are also using technology to succeed in their defenses. Here are three ways that DUI defense lawyers are beginning to use technology to help their clients:

Were you charged with a drunk driving offense? You're not alone

The last blog post referenced a survey that produced a surprising statistic about impaired driving in Colorado: Most of those arrested for this offense are men. However, there was another surprising statistic in addition to this one: Approximately 27,000 people were arrested for impaired driving offenses in Colorado in the 2016 calendar year.

Many Colorado DUI cases involve males in their 20s

To better understand DUI arrests in Colorado, a study was carried out to examine who got arrested, using data from 2016. What it found is that young men made up a very hefty percentage of the arrests, with about 33 percent of all cases involving males in their 20s.

10 minutes after rinsing with mouthwash, you could get a DUI

You go out to eat, and they have mouthwash in the restroom. You're on a date, so you use some and feel grateful that they provided it for free. You pay the bill, hop in your car and then get pulled over as you leave the parking lot when you roll through a stop sign.
