Three Effective Defenses Against DWI Charges
1) Questioning the Results of a Breath Testing Device
Under perfect conditions, a breath test can be an extremely accurate way
to estimate your blood alcohol content. However, these tests are rarely
given under perfect conditions, and there are many reasons why these results
can be inaccurate or inadmissible as evidence. Our Shamong Township DWI
lawyer has taken numerous training courses related to the function and
operation of breath testing devices, and understands many factors that
can cause inaccurate results.
2) Challenging Field Sobriety Tests
Field sobriety tests are essentially just coordination exercises. While
intoxication can definitely cause you to perform poorly on these tests,
there are a number of other reasons for a poor performance, including
fatigue, allergies, certain diseases, or even a sloped pavement. Attorney
Baxter has extensively studied the NHTSA field sobriety testing procedures,
and understands exactly how they should be performed.
3) Dispute the Legality of the Initial Stop
In many cases, it can be impossible for the court to convict you of DWI
if it can be proved that the initial traffic stop was illegal. If the
officer did not have probable cause to stop your car, then none of the
subsequent evidence can be used in court. This includes the results of
field sobriety tests, breath tests, and other critical components.
