Summer at the Lake of the Ozarks can sometimes be a bit crazy. There seem to be more DWIs issued in the summertime around. Typically, thousands of tourists venture here each here. We can’t stress this enough, don’t drink and drive. The consequences are simply not worth it. You are putting other lives in danger, not just your own. On that note, our DWI lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to tell you what to do if you’ve been charged with a DWI, in this week’s blog. If you have any questions or need to schedule a free consultation, call 573-346-9990. Deputy and Mizell is here for you.
Be sure to ask your lawyer about the following factors. These are all things that may be able to be challenged in a DWI case.
THE WEATHER CONDITIONS OUTSIDE
If the road was wet the night you were pulled over for a DWI, the water on the road could be the cause of you swerving, not intoxication. This could be a major point to be brought up in your case that may swing things in your favor.
THE READING OF THE MIRANDA RIGHTS OR LACK THEREOF
If the Miranda Rights weren’t read before you were arrested, the whole case could possibly come to an end. It’s important to remember as much as possible about the night you were pulled over as that information may be useful when trying to challenged certain factors.
THE ACCURACY OF SOBRIETY TESTS
Field sobriety tests are not right one hundred percent of the time. No one is perfect and people make mistakes, including those either administering the field sobriety tests or the machines, such as the breathalyzers, that were used as part of the process too. If anything that was part of the field sobriety test was inaccurate, this can be a major factor that could be challenged in your DWI case.
THE PRESENCE OF A VALID REASON FOR GETTING PULLED OVER IN THE FIRST PLACE
An officer isn’t supposed to pull you over unless they have valid cause to do so. If that valid cause wasn’t present, then this could be another major factor to be challenged in your case.
