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.
