When someone is pulled over for suspected drunk driving, there are very specific procedures in place for law enforcement officers to follow. When these procedures are not followed, it could void the evidence obtained against you. If you have been arrested for DUI, you need an experienced attorney to examine the circumstances of your arrest and your DUI test.
At Jacques Law Office, P.C., in Caldwell and Boise, Idaho, we work closely with our clients to determine what happened at the time of their arrest. If your rights were violated, we will fight aggressively to have the charges against you dismissed.
We will not allow “evidence” to be presented against you without authentication. The Lifeloc Breathalyzer must be tested within a certain time of your breath being tested. Calibration checks must be performed under certain conditions, such as in specific temperatures. If you refuse a Breathalyzer, a forced blood draw may be required. Here too, we oppose evidence unless the analysis is performed in the prescribed way necessary for accuracy.
Arrested for DUI? You must act quickly to prevent a driver’s license suspension. The Idaho Transportation Department only gives you seven (7) days to request a hearing on your driver’s license suspension. Contact us today for a free initial consultation. 208.344.2224.
We defend clients who have been arrested for DUI or DWI, closely examining all evidence obtained through:
Police officers must have probable cause before subjecting people to these invasive tests and, if there is probable cause, they must follow specific procedures for administering these tests. If evidence was obtained illegally, we will fight hard to have it dismissed.
We can help you determine if you have a case to be made against the officers who arrested you. It is worth looking into, as a DUI conviction can lead to fines, jail time, increased insurance costs and a suspension of your license.
At Jacques Law Office, we care about our clients as people. We know this is a difficult time for you and we will do everything we can to help you put this situation behind you as quickly and painlessly as possible.
