Does Your DUI Arrest Involve Drugs?
In addition to alcohol, driving under the influence can also apply to drugs.
The drugs involved do not necessarily even have to be illegal substances.
Prescription or over-the-counter medication can also lead to a DUI drug
arrest because these drugs can severely impair your driving and cognitive
abilities. Whether you were arrested for a DUI with marijuana or a legally
prescribed drug, you should be aware that the circumstances of a DUI arrest
involving drugs are very different from a DUI arrest with alcohol. It
is important to have an experienced attorney by your side to help you
build a solid defense.
Contact Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP
for 25 years of DUI defense experience by your side.
If convicted of DUI with drugs, you may be up against jail time, heavy
fines, and a suspension of your driver's license. Repeat offenses
carry even harsher fines and longer jail sentences. Think twice before
tackling your DUI drug case alone. Our highly respected defense lawyers
are eager and ready to help.
Understanding Your DUI Drug Case
The charges concerning a DUI with alcohol arrest are far more established
than a DUI drug arrest. This means that DUI arrests involving drugs are
often more arbitrary and are performed with lower legal standards than
typical DUI alcohol cases. Unlike DUI alcohol cases, DUI drug arrests
do not utilize a "blood alcohol concentration (BAC)" number
to indicate legal limits of impairment.
Our firm can help you craft a fierce DUI drug defense by:
- Scrutinizing your blood or urine samples
- Challenging the accuracy of your samples and tests
- Identifying discrepancies in the prosecution's evidence
- Questioning the validity of your DUI stop and arrest
- Zealously negotiating beneficial terms with the prosecution
Test results are sometimes demonstrated to be inaccurate, and it is possible
to prove to the court that the individual's abilities were not impaired.
