3 Surprising Pieces of Evidence That Will Help Your West Virginia DUI Defense
1. One for the road. If you had a drink right before you were pulled over, the likelihood is that it wouldnít be in your system. It takes time for alcohol to be absorbed by the body. So if you just had a drink, donít tell the officer you stopped drinking hours ago. Actually, itís beneficial for your defense if you just had a drink and then immediately got behind the wheel.
2. Chemical test. Even if your chemical test results were above the legal limit, they can be used to help your defense. Thatís because the police officer who took your breath or blood may have performed the test incorrectly Ė at the improper time, or possibly with faulty equipment.
3. Speeding. If you were pulled over for speeding, that isnít enough to prove that you were driving erratically. In fact, speeding does not meet the criteria for reckless driving. Your West Virginia DUI lawyer will know this and will use it to help your case.
