Following An Arrest Take Action To Understand OWI Laws

DUI,DWI,OWI,OMVWI, What Does It All Mean?
Prior to your call, let's start with the basics. Many arrested for drunk driving understandably have trouble even knowing what it is they are being charged with much less the penalties they are facing.
The formal legal abbreviation for drunk driving offenses in Indiana is "OWI," Operating A Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated, which is the same as the most commonly known and used term "DUI," Driving Under The Influence" or sometimes, "DWI," Driving While Intoxicated. In other words, all such terms refer to the same offense of Operating While Intoxicated no matter how they are labeled.
Challenging Evidence Against You
When appearing within a court of law, many accused of a crime are made to feel powerless. They often are made to believe that there is little that can be done to help them and that the legal word of an arresting police officer will be the final judgment as to their guilt.
You now know better. The fact of the matter is that there are many avenues of attack against so called "evidence" that will allow for a drunk driving prosecution to be either thrown out of court or otherwise reduced. A relentless approach toward discrediting such evidence has been a winning formula I have provided satisfied clients for over twenty productive years.
A fundamental means by which state prosecutors attempt to secure drunk driving convictions is through introduction of field sobriety test results. Although such evidence at first impression may appear to be credible, a thorough analysis of the manner in which specific tests are conducted can often lead to the discrediting of this essential case evidence. Of further inquiry will be the credentials of a given field officer as well as known flaws inherent within each respective form of testing in accord with
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) standards.
Breath Test and Blood Draw Evidence
The initial mode of attack when focused upon the defense of any dui accusation centers upon the legal introduction of breath test or blood draw results. Such evidence must be effectively countered due to the powerful impact such objective evidence tends to have upon a prospective juror.
Utilizing a greater comprehension of department of toxicology regulations than most, if not all, state police officers, effective defense counsel will seek to cast doubt upon the reliability of a given breath test or blood draw result so as to allow for the legal exclusion of such evidence.
Together we'll discuss all of the ways in which dui prosecutions can be challenged. Understanding Indiana toxicology and procedural laws is essential to preserving all of the evidentiary tools necessary to secure the best outcome possible for a person in need of the best legal defense possible.
Over Twenty Years Of Results Throughout Indiana
I have a track record of results in both urban and rural dui courts within every county within the state of Indiana. Following an arrest, whether one is in need of a top criminal defense attorney in Indianapolis, to the north from Lafayette to Crown Point or the south in Bloomington, I've been proud to stand beside my clients in every region of the state. This extensive experience has given me the know how, understanding and legal skills to level the playing field for those who may feel powerless before an arresting cop, prosecutor or judge.
Having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or more as measured on a chemical test constitutes evidence of drunk driving. All states now impose strict penalties on those who violate these laws. However, the penalties can be vastly different depending upon the state law in question as well as the respective county court. As a result, when charged with such a crime please consult with an attorney who not only has a firm grasp of the law, but also the experience to know how to best protect a client no matter what court you may appear in together.
