DWI (driving while intoxicated) or DUI (driving under the influence) are
considered serious charges in Texas. If you were found to have a blood
alcohol content of 0.08% or above, you could be arrested and charged with
drunk driving. If you have found yourself in this position, you should
contact a San Antonio criminal lawyer from The Law Office of John J. Fox
as soon as possible. We have years of experience in defending these types
of crimes and understand the best ways to defend you.
First, we will examine what occurred when the police pulled you over. If
it was a wrongful traffic stop, any evidence they have against you may
be thrown out as they did not follow procedure. Following a traffic stop,
they may have asked you to perform a
field sobriety test to submit to a breath test. Although you may incur penalties by refusing,
they will not have any hard evidence against you in court if you do respectfully
refuse. If you do take a field sobriety test and cannot successfully complete
it, this does not mean that your case is hopeless. There are other reasons
besides inebriation which may lead to a person failing a field sobriety test.
Another way law enforcement attempt to determine whether or not a person
is under the influence of alcohol is by testing their breath. By blowing
into a breathalyzer device, the police can see the results of the analysis.
However, it the device is not calibrated properly or if it was not administered
correctly, the reading may not be accurate. If you were accused of
DWI, your first step should be to contact a member of our legal team. We will
investigate your case and all of the evidence that is against you. You
can rely on our firm to do whatever it takes to help you.
