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.
