Round Rock DWI Attorney

Have you been charged with DWI or DUI?

If you are arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI), it is important to understand that there are two things going on at the same time. First, there is the drunk driving charge itself, with penalties that can include probation, jail time or the penitentiary - depending on your criminal history, and the specific circumstances of your arrest. The second consequence is the possible suspension of your driver's license.

DWI Defense Strategies

There are many ways to fight a drunk driving charge. An experienced attorney will know these angles. A number of defenses must be investigated:

Unconstitutional Traffic Stops - In order for an officer to conduct a constitutional traffic stop, he must have reasonable suspicion that a traffic violation has occurred. All evidence discovered in an illegal stop, including the field sobriety tests, verbal admissions, breath tests, etc., could be suppressed and made inadmissible at trial.

Erroneous Field Sobriety Tests - There are three standardized field sobriety tests: Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (a.k.a. "the eye test"), Nine-Step Walk-and-Turn, and the One-Leg Stand. These tests are standardized in that they must be administered the exact same way, every single time. Errors in the way the test was delivered could invalidate the results.

Failure to Read Your Rights - Once you have been arrested, the officer must read you your rights before he asks you questions. If he fails to do so, your answers are inadmissible. Sometimes an arrested person may say something that is very damaging to his case. However those statements may not be used against him in trial if the officer failed to respect his rights.

These are just a few of the many approaches to beating a DUI or DWI charge, and an experienced Round Rock criminal defense attorney can speak with you about your case at any stage of the DWI process to determine the best strategy for you.
