How Errors And Omissions in a DUI Police Report Can Help You Beat a DUI Case – California Vehicle Code Section 23152
April 9, 2010

After being arrested for a DUI, it is important to research DUI lawyers and retain a DWI attorney to work on your DUI defense for your criminal trial and DMV license hearing. It is important to understand that the outcomes of your criminal DUI case and California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) license hearing are primarily fueled by the specifics included or omitted from the police report. Some errors and omissions may not be legally significant, but others can be fatal to the criminal and DMV cases against you. This is especially true at the DMV administrative hearing, where the predominant evidence being used against you is the arresting officer’s police report. Numerous police report errors, even including minor ones, when taken as a whole, may call into question the credibility and trustworthiness of the officer who completed the report.

When charged with a DUI in California, facing two cases (the criminal DUI case and DMV license hearing) at the same time can be overwhelming and discouraging. However, your hands are not tied. DUI charges are often vulnerable to diligent legal investigation. Police officers make procedural errors, including errors or omissions in the police report being used against you.
