DUI in Fresno, CA: Fight the Charge

The DUI attorneys in Fresno are aware of the local laws and regulations. We know the procedures you have to go through if you have been charged with a DUI. We know how to oppose the charges against you and to protect your rights. We will ensure that you get a fair trail as guaranteed by the United States constitution. You cannot use denial as defense against a DUI charge. A well planned defense strategy is needed to get you out of the mess. Most evidences in a DUI case are subjective and not based on any scientific evidence.

DUI Defense in Fresno, CA: Right to Remain Silent

If you have been asked by a police officer whether you have been drinking, you should remain silent. Exercise your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you. Our Fresno DUI attorneys will object to the police using your answers as evidence against you in the court. The police must give the Miranda warnings before questioning you. Generally, in case of a DUI arrest, the police seldom read out the Miranda warnings. In the absence of Miranda warnings, the police cannot question you and if they do question you they cannot use the answer to incriminate you.

Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) Test

The police officer may inform you that it is impossible to avoid conviction if the results of your blood test reveal a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more. The results of a blood test can be opposed. There are many factors that can affect the results of a blood test. The test is conducted in a laboratory. It is possible that the laboratory did not follow the stated procedures for the testing. Laboratory technicians are humans and it is possible for humans to make mistakes. The DUI attorneys in our Fresno office have years of experience in successfully challenging the blood test results.

Constitutional Validity of the DUI Stop

Our Fresno office DUI attorneys will scrutinize the DUI stop to see if it is constitutional. There must be probable cause for the officer to stop you. The police will generally refer to erratic driving as a probable cause. Intoxication is not the only cause of erratic driving. While erratic driving may result in a traffic violation, it cannot be the grounds for a DUI case. The police will also rely on the physical appearances to determine sufficient cause but the physical appearances generally associated with intoxication can be caused by other factors such as fatigue, allergies and other medical conditions. Your speech may be blurred because you are nervous. Contact the Thomas Hogan Law Office Fresno today.
