DUI Defense in Marietta

Marietta DUI Defense Lawyer

In a DUI case, the burden of proof against you for a conviction rests on the state, which includes the officer who pulled you over and the prosecution. All aspects of the charges against you must be proven. This includes the proper administration of field sobriety tests, chemical tests for blood alcohol concentration, probable cause, search and seizure procedures, and the following of the law. In any of these factors, whether human, mechanical, or procedural, an error may be made which can be used in the defense of a DUI. As a Marietta DUI attorney and former prosecutor, Attorney Glasgow is completely familiar with how the prosecution will build its case in a DUI and can challenge it in a thorough and comprehensive protection of your rights.

DUI Defense Strategy

Blood alcohol concentration is one of the main factors in establishing the guilt of a person accused of a DUI. Therefore, the test given to measure the BAC must be proven valid and sound. The BAC test can be open to error on the part of the officer in the field administering the test or lab tests administered by others. Chemical tests are only as good as the instruments involved and the people who use them. A common error in BAC tests is called mouth alcohol contamination where alcohol in the mouth gives a false reading as opposed to the amount of alcohol in the air of the lungs.

Additionally, law enforcement personnel must obey pertinent laws when acquiring evidence to use against you. If they do not, the evidence cannot be submitted into a court of law. A good DUI defense lawyer can dissect the way in which your DUI was investigated by the police officer in the field to find such errors in your defense.
