An arrest for driving under the influence (dui)is a serious matter. It can cost you a lot of time, money, aggravation and even end your career in some professions. If you try to ignore a dui arrest in Texas, it won't go away. After fifteen days you will lose your driver's license automatically and you might even lose the whole case. Don't delay! You need expert assistance and you need it fast.
You need a good Texas dui attorney. Experience is vital in a dui case due to the complexities of such cases. They involve a lot more elements than many other types of crimes and even the best trained law enforcement officers can make mistakes which can put you at a disadvantage. It is very difficult for even the best officers to make a perfect arrest and report it without any errors.
A good arrest report must show clearly why you were stopped. Did you run a stop sign or cross the center line of the highway? If so, this must be clearly documented in the report including specific information about the time and place of the incident. Some jurisdictions require officers to keep a detailed "tracking history" of your driving to further document their decision to stop you. Is the tracking history included in the report? Is it clear and sufficiently detailed to justify stopping you?
Did the officer read the implied consent to you? Did he ask you to sign it and when did he advise you of your basic rights against being forced to incriminate yourself? Often called a "Miranda Statement", this can be confusing because it seems to contradict the wording in the implied consent. Different jurisdictions have different procedures to keep all this clear. Was the officer aware of these procedures and did he follow them correctly?
Was the officer properly trained to administer the standardized field sobriety tests? If they were not administered correctly, the results might be invalid. A good Dallas dui lawyer can review the facts of your arrest and help you ensure that all your legal rights are protected. Many experienced dui attorneys will provide an initial consultation for you at no cost. Whatever you do, don't let a dui wreck your life. Consult a professional right away.
