My job is to help the court find you not guilty of Driving While Impaired
You have two choices.
Plead not guilty and proceed to trial or plead guilty.
To prepare for trial we must first determine if your rights were violated.
Did the officer have a legal basis for stopping you and arresting you?
Did the officer administer your coordination tests correctly?
Did the officer read you your Miranda rights?
Did the chemical analyst advise you of your breath test rights, wait for you witness to arrive and administer your test correctly.
If a nurse took your blood, was it taken and tested correctly?
Did the judge set reasonably release conditions or deny you the right to have your own witnesses evaluate your sobriety.
Each of these issues is an opportunity for the officer to make a mistake. If the officer made a mistake, I can ask the judge to exclude evidence from your trial or dismiss your charges.
Then at trial, the prosecutor must prove you were operating a motor vehicle, on a public vehicular area, while impaired.
Attacking each of these elements is a chance to prove you not guilty of Driving While Impaired.
The State has the obligation to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, regardless whether you were actually guilty.
