DUI Cases May Hinge on Observations by the Arresting Officer
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), your Sacramento DUI attorney will study the report filed by the officer who made the arrest. In most police jurisdictions, it is customary that an Alcohol Influence Report (AIR) form or something similar is used by the officer to note the defendant’s actions, how he or she looks, and to record statements that could potentially bolster the case for DUI. A Sacramento DUI lawyer will dissect these notes in the client’s defense.Your Attorney Will Search for Inconsistencies
Your Sacramento DUI attorney will study the report for the possibility of inconsistencies on the part of the officer. An example might be if the result from your test for blood alcohol content (BAC) was high, but the officer indicates that by observation, you appeared normal. If this occurs, your attorney might be able to use this discrepancy to formulate a defense by discrediting the BAC test.Was There a Videotape of the Arrest?
A Sacramento DUI attorney will utilize all avenues to form a sound and reasonable defense in your case. An important function of your lawyer is to find out if it was possible for the arrest to be videotaped and, if so, whether or not a videotape was used. If the police were capable of recording a video of the arrest and did not do so, your attorney might be able to infer that the videotape would have benefited you if it had been saved and the charges might be dismissed.Contact an Experienced Sacramento DUI Lawyer
