Over the years, our Providence DUI attorneys have protected the rights and reputations of our clients by challenging the admissibility of evidence in DUI cases across the State.
What Evidence Can Be Challenged?
A DUI charge is often based upon the evidence that is collected at the scene of the arrest. Therefore, one effective defense strategy is to challenge the accuracy, legality, and relevance of that evidence.
The following types of evidence can be successfully challenged in court:
- Field Sobriety Tests (FST) – The purpose of an FST is to gather more evidence of intoxication. Most people do not realize that they are not required to perform an FST when asked. These tests are very subjective and often do not adequately determine the level of intoxication. We can evaluate the administration of these tests and the conditions under which they took place.
- Breath test evidence – Often the most crucial evidence used in DUI cases. Breathalyzer machines are often improperly calibrated or maintained. Challenging this type of evidence includes understanding the officer’s training in breath testing, the protocol for administering a breathalyzer, inspecting the unit itself, and calling upon expert witnesses to discuss the science behind the device.
