Protecting your future against DUI charges

Most people in Worcester can agree that drunk driving should be avoided at all costs. However, is it really fair to arrest a person who simply had a drink or two, is not intoxicated and hasn't caused any injuries to anyone? Many people would agree that that would not be fair, but it is the reality under our current system. People can be arrested for drunk driving, and once charged could suffer damage to their reputation, lose their driver's license and be ordered to pay thousands of dollars in fines.

That being said, prosecutors have several hurdles to overcome in a DUI case. In order to convict a person of drunk driving, the prosecution must have an air-tight argument, with no gaps or procedural mistakes. That means that any field sobriety tests that are taken must have been executed competently, and the accused's constitutional rights must have been upheld at every step of the process.

It is possible to fight drunk driving charges. The right approach will usually involve an examination of the evidence and the prosecution's case. After all, in any criminal case guilt must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. If any reasonable doubt exists as to whether the accused committed the crime, a conviction cannot occur.

A drunk driving conviction can come with serious consequences that could affect every facet of a person's life. Mounting the appropriate criminal defense strategy can be crucial. For more information please visit the drunk driving overview section of our law firm's website.
