A recent court decision made changes in the way criminal defense lawyers may present their DUI cases in trial. Many judges have not been allowing defense lawyers to present certain evidence regarding whether or not the defendant was actually under the influence. This new court decision is telling all other judges that they must allow defense lawyers to present evidence that their clients were not driving under the influence.
What evidence are we talking about? Personal partition ratios. Now, when a defendant took a breath test, and the prosecutor uses the breath test to prove that the defendant was under the influence, the criminal defense lawyer will be able to use evidence regarding the breath test to show that the defendant was actually not under the influence at the time of driving.
This new development can be of huge benefit to you if you were arrested for DUI and took a breath test. However, it can help you if you hire a lawyer who knows how to take advantage of the new court decision and knows how to present the evidence so that it is admissible in court.
