What The Prosecution Looks For In A California DUI
June 23, 2015
Field Sobriety Tests are often a critical part of the evidence in a DUI trial.

In a DUI case, it is essential you speak with an experienced California DUI lawyer, like Wallin & Klarich. When facing allegations of drunk driving, you need an attorney who can show the DMV and prosecutor that you did not display signs of mental impairment.

How Can the Prosecution Prove You are Guilty of DUI?

Most experts agree that alcohol causes mental impairment before it causes physical impairment. Therefore, if signs of mental impairment cannot be established, then any physical signs must not be due to alcohol. Such an argument, if successful, can lead to a dismissal or reduction of charges. In addition, individuals with a high alcohol tolerance can often mask physical impairment, but mental impairment cannot be disguised. Therefore, if the driver displayed physical impairment but no mental impairment, the physical difficulties must have stemmed from something other than alcohol intoxication. Remember, the prosecution must prove the driver’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in order to get a DUI conviction.

Field Sobriety Tests are often a critical part of the evidence in a DUI trial. Your criminal defense attorney will establish that these “standardized field sobriety tests” are not normal activities. In fact, these field sobriety tests have little to do with being able to safely operate a car. It is also true that any alleged scientific correlation between performing these tests and being impaired is not valid if the tests are not administered properly.
