Defending Citizens of Westbrook against their Pending DUI Charges

If you are arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI), sometimes also called operating under the influence of alcohol (OUI), you could be looking at some intense criminal penalties. Upon conviction, a sentencing judge could require you to spend time in jail, pay a large fine, or participate in some form of supervised probation. A DUI conviction on your record can also make it difficult for you to attain various life goals, like obtaining admission to a college or university or getting hired at the job of your choice.

If you or a close family member or friend has been arrested or charged with a DUI, it is important that you get an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible. The knowledgeable Westbrook DUI attorneys at The Maine Criminal Defense Group could assist you throughout your case and pursue the best possible result on your behalf. Please contact us online today to learn more about how we could assist you with defending against your pending criminal charge. 

DUI Threshold

In the State of Maine, a police officer who lawfully pulls your vehicle over could arrest you for DUI if you are found to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or greater. However, when your case goes to court, there are numerous ways that you might be able to challenge a DUI arrest and possibly obtain a dismissal of your pending criminal case.

Challenging a DUI Arrest

There are many challenges that you might be able to bring following an arrest for driving under the influence. For example, you might be able to allege that a documented medical condition (as opposed to alcohol or drug intoxication) prevented you from being able to successfully perform a field sobriety test.

Next, you cut allege that a law-enforcement officer violated your Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination or unlawfully pulled your vehicle over. In the case of an unlawful vehicle stop, any evidence of alcohol intoxication obtained subsequently could be suppressed, possibly resulting in a complete dismissal of your criminal case.

You could also allege that the breathalyzer equipment or other equipment used to calculate your blood alcohol concentration malfunctioned and that the reading was not correct. Finally, you might be able to allege that a significant period of time expired between the time of your arrest and the time of your breathalyzer reading and that at the time of your actual arrest, you did not have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or higher.

An experienced Westbrook DUI attorney could assist you with raising any of these applicable legal defenses in response to your charge. In the alternative, your attorney could argue for a favorable plea deal on your behalf and represent you at any sentencing hearing if you are convicted of the charge.
