Can I Defeat A Dallas Texas DWI?
If you are arrested and charged with a Texas DWI, it doesn’t necessarily follow that you will be found guilty and punished. Its entirely possible for you to beat the charges. With the help of an experienced Dallas Texas DWI lawyer, you can contest the case and defeat it.
There are a variety of aggressive strategies that your attorney can use to defend you. For example, if it can be shown that the arresting officer made procedural mistakes or errors in the course of your arrest, you would stand a good chance of receiving a not guilty verdict and thereby avoiding DWI charges, fines, fees, jail time and penalties.
An experienced Dallas DWI lawyer can also challenge probable cause and the way your breath tests, blood tests, and field sobriety tests were administered. In order to do this, your lawyer will need to check your arrest report as soon as possible to see if anything there can be used in your defense.
For example, if your lawyer decides that a breathalyzer test was not given properly or that the breathalyzer had not been properly maintained, the results of the breath test might be suppressed, and your DWI case might be dismissed. Your lawyer can also help you to keep your drivers license from being suspended between the day you were arrested and the date of your court appearance.
If you want to beat a Dallas Texas DWI, do not admit guilt either before or after a breath, blood or field sobriety test. If you say that you are guilty of driving under the influence, or you admit that you were at fault in any way, your case will basically be closed. Your lawyer will no longer have access to evidence that could be used to defend you. Even if he or she could access and use that information, it wouldn’t help. If you say you are guilty, your lawyer cannot prove otherwise.
The sooner you have a lawyer on your case, the better chance you’ll have to defeat a Dallas Texas DWI charge. The longer you wait, the more likely it will be that any evidence that could have helped your case will be lost or corrupted.
