Calling Expert Witnesses in your Dayton DUI Defense
Dayton is famous for aviation. It has been home to some of the most important advances in man’s journey into the wild blue yonder. One of the most remarkable accomplishments of modern aviation is its safety record—statistically the safest way to travel. Most everyone knows that an aircraft goes through countless checks to ensure it will function properly. The pilots and the ground crews know that skipping a step could cost lives.
If you have been charged with a DUI, your life is on the line; your career, your freedom, and reputation hang on the outcome of your case. The prosecution gathers evidence against you to build a case they hope will “fly.” Sometimes the only evidence against you is a breathalyzer test—a number, determined by a machine. Without this evidence, they have no case.
At Suhre & Associates, we know that a breathalyzer or any test is only as accurate as the conditions are ideal. When necessary, we have expert witnesses, who can examine all the particulars of the evidence against you and testify to any issue that may distort the results. In the case of a breathalyzer, there are dozens of variables that can affect the actual reading. The testimony of an expert witness may convince a jury to rule in your favor or in some cases persuade the prosecution to concede.
The credibility of an expert witness usually supersedes the officer who administered the test. They are very convincing to a jury who may not have even considered that DUI tests such as a breathalyzer aren’t as accurate as the prosecution claims. Their effectiveness, when it is necessary to use their services, changes the outcome of your case.
