How can you avoid a DUI conviction in Rhode Island?
There are many ways to avoid a DUI conviction in Rhode Island.
Don’t assume you’ll automatically be found guilty just because you failed a breathalyzer test
Many people assume, incorrectly, that if they fail a breathalyzer test, they’ll be found guilty of DUI automatically. That is, simply, not the case. In fact, an experienced attorney like Chad Bank, Esq., can tell you that failing a breathalyzer means that you have a chance of fighting the charges in court – and winning! There are several things that could have gone wrong with the breathalyzer machine when the sobriety test was administered to you, and only an experienced attorney like Chad Bank, Esq., can help you find the loopholes in the breathalyzer test administration.
Were you improperly stopped?
Sometimes, people are pulled over for no reason – either the police simply needed to fill their quota, or the police pulled you over thinking that you were, in fact, someone else. No matter what the reason for the improper stop, however, getting charged with DUI after getting improperly stopped is a matter that deserves to be fought out in court, and that’s something an experienced DUI attorney like Chad Bank, Esq., can do for you.
Even your BAC may be in question!
Some people erroneously believe that your BAC (or blood alcohol content) stays the same throughout the evening, even after you stop drinking, which is why you get charged with DUI. The reality, however, is that BAC fluctuates throughout the evening, and no two people react to the same amount of alcohol in the same way. Therefore, even your BAC can be called into question in a court of law…but only an experienced DUI attorney like Chad Bank, Esq., can help you effectively fight that!
