Drunk driving defense is different from other types of criminal defense. It requires significant understanding of technical issues and constantly changing case law. The legal issues are often related to breath testing technology and involve blood alcohol levels, certification procedures for law enforcement, certification for the breath test machine, and an understanding of proper administration of field sobriety tests.
Each county must have proper certification to show that the results of the breath test machine are reliable. This evidence must be presented at trial. In some situations, certification can be outdated and results of the breath test can be ruled inadmissible.
A DUI can be charged at different levels depending on the circumstances. Currently, a first time offense is a misdemeanor. However, if a child under the age of sixteen was in the vehicle, it is a felony offense. If injuries, prior convictions, or fatalities are involved during the commission of the offense, it will likely be charged as a felony.
