DWI & DUI Defense
Driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) are serious crimes in Texas that can result in imprisonment, fines, and a criminal record. If you have been accused of DWI or DUI in Texas, it is important to seek the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Several defenses may be available to individuals charged with DWI or DUI in Texas. One defense is that the individual was not intoxicated at the offense’s time. This can occur if the individual’s blood alcohol content (BAC) is below the legal limit or if the individual is not impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Another defense is that the individual’s BAC was not accurately measured. A number of factors can affect the accuracy of a BAC test, including the type of testing equipment used, the training of the person administering the test, and the individual’s health and medication use. If the individual’s BAC was not accurately measured, it might be possible to challenge the test results.
It is also possible to defend against DWI or DUI charges by challenging the legality of the traffic stop that led to the arrest. If law enforcement did not have reasonable suspicion or probable cause to stop the individual’s vehicle, the evidence obtained during the stop might be deemed inadmissible in court.
