Gathering Evidence For Your Atlanta DUI Case
A DUI criminal charge is a serious one, and may result in a license suspension or revocation, steep fines, jail time, mandatory rehabilitation or community service, probation, and more. As such, when you have been charged with driving under the influence, or a DUI, it is important that you have an Atlanta DUI attorney on your side who will gather the right evidence after arrest and not after a conviction for your case. The Atlanta DUI law firm of Thomas, Webb and Willis, LLC is ready to defend you.
Your Constitutional Right to Obtain Evidence
When you are convicted of a DUI, you have a constitutional right to obtain all evidence that is relevant to your case, or that which points to your guilt or your innocence. You have the right to request access to all evidence, including police reports, video footage, any exams or tests that were conducted, your criminal record, and more. What you are not entitled to is your criminal record with a misdemeanor arrest.
Gathering evidence is an incredibly important component of building a strong DUI defense. Gathering the right evidence requires an understanding of DUI laws in Georgia, particularly those concerning access to police reports, sobriety tests, dash mounted camera recordings, blood alcohol content levels, and more. It is also important to access the results of any chemical tests that will be used against you in a conviction, such as a blood or breath test.
Using Evidence to Build Your Defense
It is not enough to simply gather evidence; that evidence must be organized in a way that is compelling, convincing, and that upholds your innocence or reduces the charges or sentences against you. When you need DUI help in Atlanta, you need an experienced DUI defense attorney who knows exactly what it takes to collect evidence, organize evidence, and build a strong case – your future depends upon it.
