DUI Criminal Defense Attorney in Hartford

Informative & Comprehensive Legal Guidance

When a police officer suspects you of driving while under the influence, you will almost always be pulled over. It is during this time law enforcement will determine whether or not you are actually breaking the law by driving drunk. They will do so by subjecting you to one or more tests, including a field sobriety test or chemical test. However, these tests can often be used against you even when you are lawfully behind the wheel. With the help of a trusted Hanford criminal defense attorney you can rest assured you won’t be illegitimately incriminated.

Some examples of field sobriety tests include tracking your eye movements, the one-leg stand test and walk-and-turn test for balance, as well as a portable breath test machine, also known as a breathalyzer device. Chemical tests include blood and urine tests, which must be administered correctly in order to display accurate results. A standard traffic stop will likely involve a breath test, as results are instantaneous. Refusing to partake in these tests may result in an automatic license suspension, and will be used against you. However, even pulling up a blood alcohol content over 0.08% doesn’t prove your guilt, and the right legal team can successfully argue your innocence.
