One of the biggest problems with drunk driving allegations is that many people feel as though they are doomed from the very beginning. For most criminal charges, there is a person accusing you of a crime, and you must defend yourself based on the allegations; this defense could include discrediting evidence, providing an alibi and more. However, with DUIs, the person accusing you is often a police officer, and these officers usually have strong, seemingly irrefutable evidence behind them.
If you have never faced DUI allegations, it can be difficult to understand how truly desperate you begin to feel when a police officer pulls you over and asks you to submit to a field sobriety test. In many instances, simply the nervous anxiety can be enough to make you fail, which is why breathalyzers are often used to determine the exact BAC level of a driver. Unfortunately, these machines are not guaranteed to be accurate, and an improperly calibrated machine could see you wrongfully arrested.
It can be daunting to take legal action against a police officer who has accused you of drunk driving, especially if you submitted to a sobriety test and failed. However, there is always a chance that something went wrong, and there is always a chance that the arresting officer made a mistake which could have your case thrown out. If you are certain that you were not intoxicated when you were arrested, do not let anyone convince you that you cannot defend yourself.
