Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
Driving a motor vehicle while under the influence, or DWI, is an offense that includes not only alcohol, but also Schedule I and Schedule II drugs such as cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamines, or heroin. You can be charged with DWI even if the drug was prescribed by a doctor.
Just because you were arrested for a DWI and believe that you are guilty of the criminal charges, an experienced DWI attorney can still defend you against these charges and often times, charges get dismissed or you can negotiate a plea bargain based on legal defenses that may exist in your case. For instance, if you believe the police had no right to stop your vehicle or you were not driving your vehicle, you must hire an experienced DWI attorney to defend your rights. The fact alone that you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol or you tested over the limit of .08, does not mean that you have to plead guilty. I have been successful in getting DWI charges dismissed or reduced, even when my clients blood-alcohol content was well in excess of .08 and even over .20. Call me about your case for a free consultation 612-341-6575. I can discuss the facts of your case and advise you as to any defenses you may have available to you based on the specific facts or circumstances involved in your case.
