CHALLENGING DUI EVIDENCE IN DAYTON
Imagine you are on your way back from a late-night concert at the Fraze Pavilion. Tired and worn out, you don’t even see the officer until his patrol car is pulls out onto the road behind you. Soon, you’re on the side of the road answering questions and taking sobriety tests.
If an officer suspects that you are intoxicated, they will likely begin collecting evidence. They may ask you questions and request that you perform certain tests. The worst part about all of this is that the evidence that they collect is meant to be used against you, either in justifying an arrest or to aid in prosecution or both.
Presenting Your Defense
The United States uses an adversarial court system. In this system, neither the prosecution, nor the defense are meant to be objective. The role of a police officer is to assist in the prosecution of crimes. Many people don’t realize that, in their fulfillment of this role, officers are not objective. While they will do their best to administer tests properly and follow established guidelines, their purpose in doing so is often simply to ensure that the evidence they collect against you does not get thrown out.
If you are charged with a DUI in Dayton, you need an attorney. The court will objectively consider the positions presented by each side, but if there is no one available to present your defense, the prosecution won’t do it for you.
Suhre & Associates Can Challenge Evidence
Evidence like field sobriety tests and breath and urine tests can all be challenged if they are not administered correctly or based on certain conditions. Depending on the circumstances, statements that you have made to the police might be deemed inadmissible. In addition, we can contest the testimony of police officers and other witnesses based on a number of factors.
Call Suhre & Associates to speak with an attorney that can help you challenge the evidence being used against you. We will review the circumstances surrounding the arrest, the techniques used by the officer in administering tests, procedural requirements, and evidentiary standards. Through our careful review, we will determine weaknesses in the prosecution’s evidence and prepare a solid defense to your charges.
