Defending Your Rights And Your Future From DUI Charges
Although driving under the influence (DUI) charges are among the most common criminal charges that a person can face for people of all walks of life, the penalties are severe. Even a DUI first-offense conviction can result in significant fines, possible incarceration and a license suspension, as well as a tarnished reputation in the community due to a criminal conviction on your permanent record.
In July of 2014, Mississippi changed the laws to make DUI penalties even more severe, including the possibility of an interlock ignition device requirement for some first-time offenders (however, it also includes the possibility of DUI expungement).
Whether you are facing a first or subsequent DUI charge, make sure you work with experienced attorneys for your DUI defense.
The Jackson area lawyers from Shannon Law Firm, PLLC, bring experience and an aggressive approach to criminal defense for Mississippi clients. When you are facing DUI charges, the firm’s attorneys know how important it is to defend you aggressively. They are fully knowledgeable regarding the procedures and laws that could win your case.
When defending clients against DUI charges, the firm regularly looks at issues involving:
- Standardized roadside sobriety testing: In many cases, the police administer these roadside tests incorrectly, or there are other factors that negate the results.
- Breathalyzer tests: There are many mechanical errors and frequent user errors that occur in the breath and blood testing equipment and procedures. In addition, something as simple as chewing gum before the test can significantly alter the results.
- Illegal stops, searches and arrest: When the police err in the procedures regulating stops, searches, seizures and arrests, it can result in suppressed evidence and dismissed charges.
The attorneys of Shannon Law Firm, PLLC, investigate all possibilities for defeating DUI charges. They work with forensic experts, toxicologists and other experts to help clients get the best outcomes possible.
