We recently discussed how a drunk driving arrest might not be prevented by the results of a breath test, even when the breath test finds that you are under the legal limit. This might trouble some of our readers, but it is imperative to understand this concept just in case you are ever in a position that has that point as a factor. We know that people who have been drinking and see the police car pulling them over might feel fearful. This is understandable, but you need to try to focus on your rights and what is going on.
A drunk driving defense can hinge on many factors. You have to go into the defense planning with an open mind because you have to work on addressing the points that the prosecution is going to bring up against you. Each of the prosecution’s points are points that might come into the picture as part of your defense.
The penalties that you face in these cases come from various points in the case. An underage drinking charge has different penalties than a charge for a third DUI. Knowing the penalties you are facing can help you to decide how you are going to work on your defense.
As the spring break period and summer months get closer, it is imperative that people coming to this area understand that you can have fun without driving drunk. If you are going out drinking, take the time to make plans for getting back to where you need to be.
