Steps To Take After A DWUI/DUI Arrest

Under any circumstances, being pulled over by the police can be a nerve-wracking experience. If, during the course of a traffic stop, it becomes clear that a police officer suspects that you may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it's easy to panic and to say or do things that could potentially end up being used against you.

If you are arrested and charged with a DWUI, it's important to realize that a DWUI charge doesn't have to end in a DWUI conviction. It's also important to contact our law firm as soon as possible. At The Learned Law Firm, LLC, attorney James Learned has a successful track record of helping residents throughout southeastern Wyoming successfully defend against drunk driving charges.

What Your Attorney Needs To Know

When it comes to defending against DWUI charges, there are numerous factors that can influence the outcome of a case and that must be closely investigated and examined.

  • Traffic stop — What reason did a police officer provide for pulling you over? A police officer must have probable cause to conduct a traffic stop. If it can be proven that a police officer lacked probable cause, criminal charges may be dismissed.
  • Field sobriety tests — What, if any, field sobriety tests (FSTs) were conducted prior to your arrest? Did a police officer ask you to perform unauthorized tests?
  • Breathalyzer test — Did you submit to a Breathalyzer test? If so, was the device properly calibrated? If there is any doubt, the results of such a test should not be admissible in court.
  • Blood test — Was a blood test conducted? If so, how much time elapsed from the time you were pulled over to when a blood sample was taken and how was that sample stored?
  • Physical state — Do you have a disability or were you suffering from an illness or ailment at the time of your arrest? These types of factors could affect your behavior and performance on FSTs.

Based on the specific circumstances surrounding your case, we work to build a strong defense strategy to refute the prosecution's claims with the goal of obtaining a reduction or dismissal in charges.
