Examples Of Challenges To The Prosecution's Evidence
Challenges that could be filed on your behalf include:
Probable cause: Did law enforcement actually have probable cause to pull you over? Were you actually driving safely and within your lane and the speed limits in the area? If you were pulled over and there was no real probable cause, the evidence against you can be thrown out of court.
Field sobriety tests: These tests are well-known to be less than scientific. Failure is based on the observation of the officer administering the test, and there are multiple reasons other than intoxication that could cause someone to fail to walk in a straight line or fail another test.
Improper Breathalyzer tests: Breathalyzer tests are not always accurate. The equipment could be improperly calibrated or not had the required maintenance or have had a history of malfunctioning. Even when the test is administered correctly (which is also open to challenge), there is quite a high rate of error. The level of alcohol measured in an individual's system can vary by 15 percent compared with the actual alcohol level. These results can be challenged on your behalf.
Inaccurate police reports: Police often write reports that include items like "bloodshot eyes" as an indicator of intoxication. This can be caused by allergies, contacts or other reasons. In fact, some people always have bloodshot eyes. They may mention "the smell of alcohol in the vehicle." This smell can remain in a vehicle after you have dropped off a friend who had been drinking.
