Even if you were driving drunk when you were stopped, prosecutors still have the burden of proving it, and you can’t be convicted until you’ve had your say.
There are many ways to defend against allegations of drunk driving in New Jersey.
Police officers often aren’t trained to properly administer Field Sobriety Tests, or they make drivers perform them under conditions that are prohibited, like during a thunderstorm or on uneven ground.
Breath tests can be affected by a variety of things, from medical conditions to low carb dieting, and the results are considered based on the device itself being properly maintained and operated by a certified administrator.
Over and over again, prosecutors bully people into pleading guilty when the fact is that they are armed with the shoddiest of evidence that won’t hold up under scrutiny from an experienced DUI defense lawyer.
Most people feel a sense of regret after being charged with DUI, and it’s perfectly natural to beat yourself up a little for ending up in this situation.
But your feelings of guilt and a court’s finding of guilt are very different things.
