DUI Legal Defenses
Usually, a Bucks County DUI case starts with a traffic or vehicle stop of some kind. Your vehicle must be stopped “legally” or the whole Bucks County DUI case could be thrown out of court and you win.
After you are stopped, the Bucks County police officer must find probable cause that you have been drinking and driving. The manner in which the local police officer determines whether you have been drinking and driving can also be attacked, if improper. This includes observations, questioning, portable breath tests (PBT’s) and field sobriety tests.
You can be convicted of Bucks County Drunk Driving-DUI without a breath or blood test. This is rare. Most commonly, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a blood or breath test will be administered to you unless you refuse. There are also many defenses based on whether the blood or breath test was administered properly. Sometimes, the breath test equipment does not work properly.
It takes an experienced and local Bucks County DUI-drunk driving lawyer such as Michael L. Saile, Jr., Esq. to find and pursue all available DUI defenses so that you can win your Bucks County DUI case.
