How to Fight a Whitesburg Charge
You should be aware that just because you have been charged with DUI does not mean you do not have rights and cannot have a successful case. There could be details of your arrest that can lead to a dismissal of your DUI charge.
The prosecuting attorney depends on the officer's police report that could include any chemical test results a field sobriety test results to use against you. However, these tests may be challenged and proven unreliable if they are not done properly. Whether it is your first DUI arrest or second offense, time is not on your side in finding courses of action to take based on your arrest details and challenging any collected evidence. That is why it is critical to contact our Whitesburg DUI Attorneys as soon as possible after an arrest!
