Drug DUI Charges & Your Rights
Driving under the influence of drugs is prosecuted just as strictly as
drunk driving. While there is no blood-alcohol equivalent for drug DUI,
officers are given broad discretion to evaluate a person’s driving.
Law enforcement must rely more on field sobriety tests which include:
- The Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test
- Walk and Turn
- One leg stand
Officers will be closely examining a driver’s mannerisms and performance
while taking one of these tests. All observations may be entered into
the state’s case against you. No matter what the details of your
case are, as a highly-trained and qualified
Atlanta drug crimes lawyer, I can step in and argue on your behalf for the best outcome possible.
Field sobriety tests are inherently subjective and are not indicative
of being under the influence of any substance.
Trustworthy & Resilient Advocacy
Law enforcement must administer such tests a certain way, and if they fail
to do so, your “poor” results could be inadmissible and thrown
out of court. Likewise, there could be other reasons for how you performed
on your tests such as uneven pavement or a pre-existing eye condition.
I am a skilled Atlanta DUI attorney and am very familiar with the state’s
drug statutes which means I understand how to beat a wide range of
criminal matters, including DUI charges. Don’t let just any attorney handle your
defense—let me argue fiercely for a positive outcome.
