DUI and DWI Cases
First and foremost, being charged with drunk driving does not make you guilty. There are many complex laws surrounding these charges, and many factors that impact the legitimacy of a DUI or DWI case:
- Actions of the officer who arrested you
- Degree to which protocol was followed during the arrest
- The equipment used
- Your criminal record, or lack thereof
- Video evidence
- Field Sobriety Tests (FST)
The prosecution is aiming to convict you, and will often use any means available to them to do so. With Attorney Keller representing you, you can be confident that your case is in the hands of someone who comprehends South Bend criminal law and the criminal justice system.
Drunk driving is a serious issue that causes great harm to many people, so police officers in Michigan and Indiana are often granted leeway in terms of who they arrest and attempt to prosecute in these cases. This is done in an effort to reduce the injuries caused by drunk drivers, but it may mean you’re unfairly targeted.
