Take swift action when you are charged with drunk driving

Last week, we discussed the story of the 15 people who are facing charges after getting caught at a sobriety checkpoint. It is no secret that drunk driving charges carry some serious penalties if you are convicted. How you are caught drunk driving has very little bearing on how your case is handled from the prosecution's side. We know that how you were caught can sometimes have a significant impact on your defense.

15 arrested at DUI checkpoint

DUI checkpoints are designed to catch drivers operating their vehicles under the influence of alcohol before an accident occurs. However, it's important that those charged understand that the officers at these checkpoints still have to follow proper procedure when administering field sobriety tests or conducting searches on the vehicles. If you've been arrested for driving under the influence after being stopped at a sobriety checkpoint, it's important to talk with a criminal defense attorney about your case and your possible options.
