We’ve been focusing lately on the most common Arizona DUI defense strategies and what DUI attorneys look for when they take on an Arizona DUI case. Check back here to learn about the Arizona DUI defense strategies we’ve already covered.
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 “violation of Miranda warnings” 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.
Violation of Miranda Warnings
Thanks to the media, you’ve heard the Miranda rights before. But whether or not they were read to you clearly at your time of arrest is a different story.
Prior to any questioning by law enforcement officers of a person in custody or the person must be warned that: (a) he or she has a right to remain silent; (b) any statement he or she does make may be used as evidence against him or her; (c) he or she has the right to the presence of an attorney; and (d) if he or she cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for him or her prior to any questioning if he or she so desires. If these rights are not read to you upon arrest, and it happens more than you may think, you have an Arizona DUI defense.
Other Arizona DUI Defenses Include:
- Lack of actual control.
- No probable cause for arrest.
- No reasonable suspicion to stop.
- Denial of right to counsel.
- Faulty field sobriety tests.
- Denial of independent tests.
