If you are like most people, you are probably feeling afraid, confused, angry, and worried about what is going to happen next with your DWI case.
The DWI attorneys at Granger and Mueller PC would like you to know that there is a good chance we can help. The law says that the County Attorney needs only to prove that after drinking, you were not able to drive your car in a "normal" capacity. That may sound cut and dry, but it is not quite as simple as that. If challenged, the County Attorney must also show all of the following:
- That the arresting officer made the DWI arrest properly;
- That you were properly advised of your rights after being pulled over for Drunk Driving;
- That the equipment the officer used to test your DWI was working accurately; AND,
- That the person operating the equipment was certified to do so.
Furthermore, the officer that administers the "standard field sobriety tests" for DWIs should have successfully completed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Standardized Field Sobriety Testing student class before administering the DWI tests.
In addition to grading your performance on your sobriety tests, we will also grade the officer to ensure that he or she conducted the tests properly. If the test were NOT conducted properly, this can be disclosed to the County Attorney or the jury to show that the test results were unreliable and should not be believed.
