One morning you wake up, take your prescription medication as usual, and go about your day.
Then the unexpected happens.
You’re pulled over, arrested, and charged with a DUI. Your life is now upside down.
You never meant to do anything illegal. How do you get the charge dropped?
Prove that there were other factors at work.
Were you in an accident that lead to DUI accusations?
The circumstances of your DUI charge could possibly be chalked up to unexpected or rare medication side-effects, mental or emotional distress, some other physical illness, adverse weather conditions, and other such factors. These could all play favorably into your defense against DUI charges.
The prosecution will have a difficult time bringing evidence against you.
Proving a DUI involving alcohol (often called a DWI) is straightforward. But DUIs involving prescription medication is much more challenging. This will mean that you have a greater chance of proving your innocence and having the charges dropped.
You may be able to prove that the officer didn’t have probable cause to pull you over.
Another solid defense you can use in overturning your DUI charge is proving that the arresting officer had no legal basis for stopping you and assessing you for a DUI.
