Dealing with a DUI Arrest

Posted on:4/3/2012
DUI is a serious charge. It is no laughing matter. It is not another traffic offense. It is a crime. If convicted, you can be sent to prison.


If you are stopped for DUI, do as the police officer instructs you to do. Do not refuse the sobriety tests or the breath analyzer tests. It will give the officer sufficient cause to subject you to a chemical test. If you refuse the chemical test, you can be arrested for DUI. Refusing a breath analyzer test will result in the administrative suspension of the driver’s license in many states.

 

If you are arrested, there is no point in pleading your innocence. The police officer will not be interested in your pleas. Instead he will be listening carefully to every word that is coming out of your mouth to see if he can use those words to implicate you. Remember, if the police officer has decided to stop you for DUI, he has more or less made up his mind to arrest you for DUI.

 

Exercise your right to remain silent. Make a mental note of everything including the sequence of events from the time you were stopped until you are allowed to speak to your attorney.

 

At the police station, ask that you be allowed to talk to your attorney. Inform him about the entire sequence of events leading from the DUI stop to your arrest. The attorney will use this information to develop a defense strategy.
