Challenge Evidence & Arrest

Challenge Evidence & Arrest

DWI is an extremely serious charge, the consequences of which can be overwhelming for first-time offenders, and devastating for multiple offenders.  However, sometimes police officers are negligent in their handling of the situation, and this can help a defense attorney build a strong case challenging the evidence and arrest.  If convincing enough, the challenge can result in minimal penalties and even complete exoneration of all charges.  Sometimes, it is more advisable to work with a McKinney DWI Attorney for a favorable plea bargain, but if there is enough evidence showing police negligence or falsifying the charges, it is best to fight the charges and work to prove that the DWI/DUI arrest was erroneous.

The consequences of a DWI/DUI arrest are strong, even for a first-time offender.  For a first-time offender, the consequences can include up to 180 days in jail, up to $2,000 in fines, and up to 365 days of driver’s license suspension.  For second-time offenders, the penalties can include up to 1 year in jail, up to $4,000 in fines, up to 2 year’s license suspension, and will require your car to be equipped with an IID, or Interlock Ignition Device.  For third-time offenders, an individual can receive up to 2 years in jail, up to $10,000 in fines, up to 2 years driver’s license suspension, and the aforementioned IID.  Even considering the possibility of a reduced penalty with a plea bargain, these penalties can uproot a person’s livelihood, and potentially hurt a person’s chance to recover.  This is why it is recommended to fight the charges if they are false and can be proven so.

If an individual decides to fight the charges brought upon them by the state, the guidance and advice of a professional McKinney Attorney will be invaluable.  The job of a McKinney Criminal Attorney is to compile every bit of evidence related to the case, to analyze the evidence for potential mishandling or holes, and to put together a convincing case that is designed to either prove an individual’s innocence, or prove that the individual’s rights were violated at any point during the arrest and detainment.
