Any charge of driving under the influence is extremely serious, as this can have a major impact on your life. For example, there are many penalties associated with a conviction, such as large fines and imprisonment.
Since your future is in jeopardy, you don’t want to waste any time learning more about the circumstances surrounding your arrest and legal case. Some of the many things to think about include:
— Why your vehicle was pulled over by the officer. Did he or she have probable cause?
— The type of equipment that was used to measure your sobriety.
— The arrest procedure, including any mistakes that may have been made along the way.
— If you are being charged with any other type of crime, such as reckless driving.
— If you have been arrested and/or convicted of driving under the influence in the past.
