What it takes to challenge DUI evidence in court
If you have been charged with drunk driving, it is important to understand the types of evidence that will be used against you, and how that evidence can be challenged. For example, field sobriety tests, which are used to gain more evidence of intoxication, may have serious errors. These tests are often easily challenged as the officer may not have followed the guidelines in the correct administration of the tests. Additionally, the results from breath and blood tests could be challenged by proving that a lab did not follow correct procedures with testing, analysis or preservation of the sample.
Breathalyzer evidence can also be flawed, and should be reviewed immediately. It may be possible to establish that that the police officer did not have sufficient cause to stop you for suspicion of drunk driving, and may have violated your rights in the police stop.
