DUI with Drugs

Phoenix DUI of Drugs Attorney

Arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Drugs?

Many people are well-aware that driving under the influence of alcohol can result in a DUI criminal charge. Did you, know that you can also be facing serious criminal penalties if you are found to be operating a vehicle while impaired by drugs? While it is a criminal offense to be found impaired and driving with any trace of drug in your system, it does not necessarily need to be an illegal drug. For example, if you take drugs that are legally prescribed to you and then get behind the wheel and a law enforcement officer believes that you are impaired, you could also find yourself facing DUI-related charges.

Arizona laws can be harsh and unforgiving when it comes to driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If the police even suspect that you are driving impaired then they may request a urine or blood test to check for drugs in your system. If you are convicted of a drug DUI, then your driver's license will be revoked and one year must pass before you reapply, you may also be denied access to a work permit.

Obtaining Qualified Legal Representation

At a time such as this, however, it is important to remember that a criminal charge does not equate to a criminal conviction. If you are arrested for these charges it does not mean that you are guilty of that crime. Guilty or not, it is important that you do not answer any questions until you have a lawyer present because you may say something to the police to incriminate yourself and they can use it against you later on.

At the end of the day, it would benefit you greatly to have an experienced and skilled attorney fighting in your corner. They may be able to have your charges minimized significantly or have them dismissed altogether. Knowles Law Firm, PLC knows how daunting it can be to face criminal penalties with cases of this nature and they are prepared for litigation no matter the offense.

Defending Your Charges

Combatting DUI and drugs charges may seem intimidating and impossible at the moment, but by having an attorney by your side, you will be able to take the necessary steps towards building the strongest case possible. There are many different legal defenses that can be utilized in these types of cases. For example, one of the preliminary defenses that can be utilized is the fact that you were not impaired. Just because there was drugs found in your system, it doesn't mean that you were under the influence. What if you were taking perfectly legal over-the-counter drugs? This does not deserve a criminal conviction.

Another defense that can be pursued is the fact that you did not have drugs in your system which means that you could not have been impaired. This must mean that an external factor has influenced law officials into believing you are impaired. One thing to keep in mind is that there are a lot of other physical conditions that can lead a police officer to think that you're impaired.

What if you're just tired? This could come across as being "drugged" to a police officer, but exhaustion is not a criminal act. Even if you're just nervous, this could appear as if you're under the influence. Drug tests and field sobriety test are never fully accurate and there may be room for error in the results. In many cases, the person administering the test could have been improperly trained or did not follow the proper procedures. An experienced attorney will be able to look into your case to help determine and point out these discrepancies.
