Most residents equate the holiday season with good times with family and friends, but for law enforcement officials, it is a time when almost any driver could be a potential drunk driver. Law enforcement agencies throughout the country typical enhance their DUI enforcement during this time of year.
DUI charges are some of the most common criminal cases in America. Our state is no exception to this trend. However, just because a person has been charged with a DUI offense does not automatically mean that the person will be convicted of the offense. With the right criminal defense strategy, it may be possible to reduce the charges in the case, or maybe even get the case dismissed entirely.
In most cases, the outcome of the case will depend on the available evidence. After all, it is the prosecution’s burden to prove a defendant’s guilt, “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Without sufficient evidence, it may be hard to do so. A criminal defense strategy may include efforts to suppress evidence that was obtained in violation of a defendant’s constitutional rights, or may call into question the validity of the evidence obtained.
