Recently on the Naegle & Crider Criminal Defense Attorneys blog, we’ve been focusing on the most common Arizona DUI defense strategies and what DUI attorneys look for when they take on an Arizona DUI case. We’ve already discussed “Lack of Actual Control” and “No Reasonable Suspicion to Stop”; so take a look back at the details of those if you have a moment.
A lot of people don’t think hiring an Arizona DUI attorney will help because they feel like there is no defense for them. These people believe they are victim to the system and will get the same punishments and fees whether they have an Arizona DUI attorney or not. In my experience, this is simply not the case and DUI attorneys can make sure that your case isn’t a simple “conviction” for the State. You have rights that must be protected throughout the entire process and your case, like all other criminal cases, must be proved without reasonable doubt.
There are a number of DUI defense strategies that can work for even the most typical of cases. Today, let’s take a look at the “lack of actual physical control” DUI defense. Remember that any one of these Arizona DUI defense strategies discussed on this blog may or may not work with your case. Meet with an Arizona DUI Attorney to review the specifics of your case and what defense strategies may apply to you.
No Probable Cause to Arrest
This one is pretty simple, but because it is so simple, it often goes unnoticed by people. When the officer is placing you under arrest, it’s understandable that you don’t remember the events leading up to the officer saying those words, “You are under arrest.”
According to Arizona DUI law, the law enforcement officer must have reliable information that would lead a reasonable person to conclude that criminal activity has been or is being committed at the time of arrest. If this information doesn’t exist, the arrest is unconstitutional and the case must be dismissed.
Other Arizona DUI Defenses Include:
- Lack of actual control.
- No reasonable suspicion to stop.
- Faulty field testing.
- Denial of right to counsel.
- Violation of Miranda warnings.
- Denial of independent tests.
