When a person is charged with a DUI, he or she may feel as if there is nothing they can do except to plead guilty. There are possible defenses to a DUI charge, however, and people who are facing a DUI case should be aware of them.
The most common DUI defenses involve taking a critical look at how the stop was performed and how any tests were administered. If the officer did not have a good reason to stop the car in the first place, the stop itself may be challenged for lacking probable cause. In the event such a challenge is successful, all evidence gathered after the stop may be suppressed in the case.
