DWI / BWI: When you were arrested, did you not have the normal use of your mental or physical faculties, or had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher? This is what the prosecution must prove in order to show that you were intoxicated while driving or boating. It is important to know that people charged with DWI are facing two (2) cases against you! First, you have 15 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing to try and save your driver’s license at a civil proceeding known as an Administrative License Revocation (ALR) hearing. Second, your DWI criminal case will depend on a multitude of factors that can initially be reviewed from the offense report, police video, and you breath/blood test results. The prosecution must prove that your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is both accurate and reliable. Collings & Associates know how to give a jury the information they need in order to have reasonable doubt about the prosecution meeting its burden of proof. Remember, you can and should refuse to take a breath or blood test! If you refuse, the police have to get a warrant!
