When Maryland residents are arrested on drunk driving charges, they may think it is too late to mount a defense to the charge. After all, they have already been cuffed and processed at the jail, right? Wrong. While anyone would likely feel embarrassed or distraught in the immediate aftermath of being arrested, this is no time to lose hope about the prospects of defending against the charges.
DUI charges are some of the most common criminal charges anywhere, including in Maryland. Hundreds of people are arrested on DUI charges every year in our state. But, that isn't to say that every person who is arrested for DUI is convicted of DUI charges. In fact, there can be a number of criminal defense options in any approach to DUI charges.
For many people, the primary concern is that their driver's license might be suspended. For others, the prospect of a criminal conviction on their record is the biggest issue. And, for some who are facing DUI charges for the second or third time, the prospect of an extended period of court supervision - or even imprisonment - can be the biggest concern to face.
At our law firm, we know that each criminal case is different, and that is also true with DUI cases. Many people may think that these types of cases are "simple," but, in reality, they can be among the most complicated of criminal cases. The sheer amount of evidence involved - breath tests, officer observations, the reason for the traffic stop - means that there might be a number of areas to push back.
