Being arrested or charged with DUI can be a terrifying experience, particularly if you failed a field sobriety test or have been told by a police officer that there is sufficient evidence to warrant your arrest and conviction. Neither a failed field sobriety test nor a breathalyzer test showing you had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or more at the time of your arrest are enough to guarantee a conviction. These types of tests are highly subjective and their results can be adversely affected by human error, regardless of what your arresting officer or the prosecution may lead you to believe. For that reason, it is very important that you never admit guilt or discuss the circumstances that lead up to your arrest without first obtaining legal counsel. A simple admission that you had a drink earlier that night, a statement about that fact that you are currently taking prescription medication or a refusal to submit to breath or blood tests can all be used against you in a court of law. This can make it more difficult for an attorney to defend your case and help you seek an aquittal.
