Oui Defense (Drunk Driving)
Being pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving ( Commonly referred to as an OUI, DUI or DWI) and subsequently charged can be an intimidating experience when you do not know what your rights are. That's why it is important that you have an experienced criminal defense at your side to fight for you.
Things that you need to know if you get pulled over:
You can refuse to tell the officer where you are coming from.
You can refuse to tell the officer if/what you were drinking.
You can refuse to perform field sobriety tests after you've been pulled over by the police.
You can refuse a breathalyzer test at the police station after you have been arrested.
You can request to have your own private blood test performed by a doctor of your choosing.
After your arrest:
Your first court appearance, usually on the first business day after your arrest, is called an arraignment. This is when you are told of the charges against you and any bail or conditions of release are set. If you can hire an attorney to come with you to this hearing, you should.
