Defending You From DUI Charges In Charleston
Just because you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Charleston, does not mean you are facing a hopeless case. An experienced Charleston DUI ATTORNEY can take measures to fight the charges and reach the best possible resolution to the matter, from first offenses to felony DUI charges to underage DUIs.
Sahn Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina, is here to defend against your DUI charge. As a former top DUI prosecutor, I know exactly where to look in each step of the prosecution’s case, from the blood tests and field sobriety tests to the videos and documentation of the stop.
DUI prosecutions almost always rely upon questionable evidence. Error and contamination plague the process of testing, including Breathalyzer and blood-alcohol testing. Poorly trained and overzealous police officers write reports that exaggerate a suspect’s “appearance of impairment.” Assumptions are made and acted upon by police officers, causing exhaustion, nervousness and intimidation that may be mistaken for impairment.
The alleged “science” behind “impairment recognition” is nothing more than pseudoscience, and oftentimes junk science. It can lead to the wrongful arrest, prosecution and conviction of a person who was not driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
As your lawyer, I will carefully evaluate the nature of the stop as well as the details of the tests used to evaluate your level of intoxication. Mistakes are often made, and I will find them.
Were You Impaired?
In South Carolina, it is not against the law to have a drink and then drive. It is only against the law to drive while you were “materially” and “appreciably” impaired. If you were arrested for drunk driving in South Carolina, do not plead guilty until you know all the facts and possible defenses
