Being pulled over and charged with a DUI was likely a frightening experience. However, we may be able to start your defense with your very first interaction with the police. If you don’t think that the police had a reason to pull you over, the stop may not have been legal. What transpired afterwards may also legally be called into question if this is the case. While this is not a popular defense, it is worth exploring.
If the police officer asked you to perform standardized field sobriety tests or to submit a breath test after they pulled you over, we may be able to defend against these results as well. Oftentimes there are issues with these types of tests that can make them inaccurate. We can review the situation that you found yourself in and determine if it is worth pursuing defenses against breath test or standardized field sobriety test results.
Once you are charged with a DUI, you will have to deal with both the court system and the DMV. These are separate processes that dole out their own punishments. If you are overwhelmed by the idea of going to court, you are not alone. Learn more about the New London Superior Courthouse where your case will be heard in this section.
In addition to dealing with the court, you will have to deal with the DMV. The DMV is in charge of suspending or revoking driver’s licenses when it sees fit. Upon learning about your DUI arrest, you will be notified by the DMV that they are suspending your license. Remember that this happens independently of a DUI conviction. However, you do have a chance to fight the license suspension at an administrative per se hearing with the DMV.
You may wonder about the other penalties that you face if arrested for a New London DUI. We outline first, second, third, and subsequent offenses on the various pages in this section. We also outline some additional penalties that you could face if you have a commercial driver’s license.
