Right to Remain Silent

Posted on:2/1/2012
When you have been stopped for DUI, chances are that the police officer has already made up his or her mind to arrest you. So there is no point in arguing with him or her. Just do as he or she wants you to do – the sobriety tests and the breath analyzer tests. You can legally refuse these tests but that will only give them probable cause to suspect that you are driving under the influence.


If the police officer determines that you are driving under the influence and arrests you, exercise your right to remain silent. Shouting and screaming your innocence will not help. In fact, it can make a bad situation worse. Do not run away from the scene. If you do you will have to fight other charges and sometimes you will be charged with a felony offense instead of a misdemeanor offense. Remember the court will hear your side of the case before determining whether or not you are guilty as charged.

 

When you are at the police station, exercise your right to remain silent. Remember drunk driving is looked upon as a social evil and the police will try to make an example of anyone caught driving under the influence. They will be under tremendous pressure to obtain a conviction. In their desperation, they will resort to using everything that you tell them as evidence against you. You should therefore exercise your right to remain silent and ask that you be allowed to contact your attorney.
