First time and repeat DWI/DUI offenders are usually concerned about the type of penalties they may be facing. Depending on each case’s facts and circumstance, first and second DWI/DUI convictions are misdemeanors and additional convictions are felonies. Penalties include:
- Imprisonment, and
- Suspension or revocation of driving privileges.
DWI/DUI convictions also have disastrous personal and professional ramifications such as loss of employment opportunities, personal relationship, or child custody or visitation. A Terrell DWI Lawyer will fight hard to obtain a reduction or dismissal of your charges and/or penalties.
Alcohol Blood and Breathalyzer Tests
The results of a breathalyzer or alcohol blood tests could be barred as evidence if properly challenged. For example, when the blood test was administered, the officer or medical professional may not have followed proper protocol. Similarly, the breathalyzer may have been calibrated inaccurately or it was improperly administered.
Attorney John Eastland stays on the forefront of the “science” behind DWI/DUI chemical tests. He understands that other factors may also affect the results of chemical tests, like if you have a pre-existing medical condition or if you had a reaction to a medication that you properly consumed and which failed to warn against operating a vehicle.
Standardized Field Sobriety Tests
Attorney John Eastland, a certified standardized field sobriety test (SFST) practitioner, is trained in the following tests:
- Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus
- One Leg Stand
- Walk and Turn
He could use his knowledge that these “balance” tests frequently yield inaccurate results to subsequently challenge your DUI/DWI charges.
