DUI Lawyer Serving Castro Valley
What You Should Do After a DUI Charge
It is important to be represented by a criminal defense attorney who has
a thorough understanding of the law and the system and experience in the
actual inner workings of law enforcement, to find the inconsistencies
in police reports and sobriety test results. A DUI charge can be challenged
on a number of technicalities. If you are stopped it is best to avoid
engaging in discussion or answering questions from police. Under the U.S.
Constitution you do not have to answer these questions, other than providing
the documentation such as driver's license and registration and other
basic information. You do have to follow police directions, but you are
not required to take a field sobriety test (FST). The job of a police
officer is to gather evidence of guilt, and make an arrest, not to be
your friend. The field sobriety tests only provide more evidence against
you so that law enforcement can provide it to the court to convict you.
Caveat: You are required to take a chemical test. If you refuse to take
one, your license will be suspended for a minimum of one year.
