Potential DWI Defenses
Far too often, innocent individuals get caught in false accusations. Police officers must have probable cause before they can stop someone on the road. Whether you were driving recklessly, swerving severely or breaking a traffic law, it does not matter, so long as you were perceived to be committing an action worthy of being pulled over. If a law officer stops someone based off a feeling or minor suspicion, this could be called into question in court.
Additionally, breath and blood tests can often be read inaccurately. The person administering the test could end up using the device improperly, the blood sample could be tampered with or processed incorrectly, or in breath tests the Breathalyzer may not have been properly cleaned before use.
