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. Police have to use their instincts, common sense, and detective work to determine whether or not a suspect is driving while impaired by drugs. This can often lead false arrests and wrongful charges.

No matter what the details of your case are, as a highly-trained and qualified Cobb County criminal 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.

Drugs like cocaine stay in your system for up to 48 hours after ingestion. Both these periods are longer than the effects of these drugs. Currently, Georgia follows “per se” laws concerning DUI arrests with the drugs. These laws state that it is illegal to be driving with any detectable amount of illegal substances in your system, which means you could be charged with DUI even if you were in no way impaired at the time of your arrest.

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 Cobb County 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.
