How to Fight a DUI Case in Indiana

Being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) can be a frightening and overwhelming experience. One of the first steps someone should take after receiving a DUI charge is to contact an experienced DUI attorney for a consultation. This blog post will review three ways you can fight a DUI charge in Indiana, with the help of an attorney. 

Challenge the Arrest

At any point during the arrest process, it is possible that your rights may have been violated. It is not uncommon for police officers to intentionally or accidentally violate your rights by failing to follow proper procedures during a traffic stop. Examples of this include if the police officer did not read you your Miranda Rights or pulled you over without reasonable suspicion. If any of these scenarios are true, then your attorney can challenge the arrest and any evidence collected by the arresting officer could be excluded from court proceedings. 

Fighting the ‘Evidence’

In order to convict someone of drinking under the influence, there must be evidence that proves beyond reasonable doubt that they were intoxicated while operating their vehicle. The legal team at Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock can fight any evidence presented against you at trial. For example, breathalyzer tests are known to give false results due to improper calibration or environmental factors like humidity and temperature. Additionally, blood alcohol tests require trained lab technicians who follow specific guidelines which must be met for accuracy. Failure to do so could result in inaccurate readings being used as evidence against you in court. An experienced attorney can help identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case by carefully reviewing all potential evidence presented against you. 

Contact a DUI Lawyer

Working with an experienced lawyer is highly recommended when facing a DUI charge, as they understand Indiana’s laws better than anyone else and will use that knowledge to get you the best defense possible. A reputable lawyer will also look for errors made by police officers or other individuals involved in your case and use them as leverage during negotiations with prosecutors or in court proceedings if necessary. Depending on how severe your charge is, and the facts of your case, they may even be able to get it reduced or dismissed altogether. 

Fighting a charge for driving under the influence can feel like an uphill battle, but having an experienced lawyer on your side makes all the difference. There are many strategies available for reducing or dismissing charges, such as challenging evidence presented against you at trial or using errors made by police officers during arrest as leverage for negotiation with prosecutors. Both of these strategies require extensive legal knowledge and expertise that only comes from years of experience working with similar cases like yours.
