|9 REASONS TO TAKE YOUR OUI/DWI CASE TO TRIAL
|While this list is certainly no substitute for a face-to-face consultation with an attorney with experience in
these matters, a detailed discussion as to the specifics of a person's case and background, the following
illustrates why OUI/DWI cases are among the most heavily contested and successfully litigated matters in
our Courts today:
1. "LIFETIME LOOK-BACK" FOR ALL CONVICTIONS.
2. PROGRESSIVE MANDATORY PENALTIES FOR ALL
3. REFUSING A BREATH TEST OR 'FIELD SOBRIETY' TEST
CANNOT BE USED AGAINST YOU AT TRIAL.
4. THE PROSECUTOR HAS THE BURDEN OF PROOF AT
TRIAL, NOT YOU!
5. SOME EVIDENCE GATHERED AT THE SCENE BY
POLICE MAY NOT BE ADMITTED AT TRIAL.
6. IF YOU WERE NOT PROPERLY ADVISED BY POLICE OF
CERTAIN RIGHTS, A POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR A COURT
-ORDERED DISMISSAL OF YOUR CASE.
7. IT IS NOT A CRIME TO HAVE A DRINK AND DRIVE. THE
CRIME OCCURS WHEN ONE DRIVES WHILE
"IMPAIRED" BY THE USE OF ALCOHOL.
8. MOST FIRST TIME OFFENDERS WITH A MINIMAL
CRIMINAL HISTORY WILL LIKELY RECEIVE THE
IDENTICAL SENTENCE OF PROBATION, ALCOHOL
EDUCATION PROGRAM, 45-DAY LICENSE LOSS, COURT
COSTS, FINES, AND FEES AS WOULD BE IMPOSED BY A
JUDGE HAD YOU 'PLED-OUT' YOUR CASE PRIOR TO
9.PRIOR OUI/ DWI CONVICTIONS WILL NOT BE
ADMITTED INTO EVIDENCE IN A JURY TRIAL.
***** THE DECISION ON HOW TO RESOLVE YOUR CASE IS A PERSONAL ONE, WHICH SHOULD NOT BE MADE
WITHOUT HAVING YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY AN ATTORNEY WITH EXPERIENCE IN OUI/DWI CASES. YOU
HAVE A RIGHT TO AN ATTORNEY, USE IT!*****
