Learn what you can do to protect yourself in a drunk driving case

We recently discussed how field sobriety tests impact your drunk driving case. This isn't the only thing that can impact the case. In fact, everything that you do leading up to the traffic stop through the final disposition of your case can have an impact on what happens.

Defense options based on field sobriety test interpretations

As we discussed previously, standardized field sobriety tests encompass three components. One of these is the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. In this test, the officer looks at how the person's eyes track an object. Because the test is based on subjective interpretation, there might be issues with the final result that is noted for the test.

The horizontal gaze nystagmus test is used in DUI stops

When you are pulled over for the suspicion of drunk driving, you might be asked to complete a field sobriety test. The standardized version of this test includes three components. One of the components is the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. This test uses the movements of your eyes to clue the officer conducting the test into whether you are intoxicated or not.

Find the focal point of the prosecution's case to plan a defense

The penalties of a drunk driving conviction should spur you to take action from the second that you know you will be facing these charges. There isn't any reason to think that you need to just sit back and take things without any fight. We know that you might not know where you should start for your defense. We are here to help you along the way.

Could your job be in jeopardy following a DUI conviction?

A DUI conviction in South Carolina carries serious legal consequences, and it can also affect your life in other negative ways. For example, U.S. News recently reported about a police officer who lost his job due to a DUI while on the job. He was just released from jail on bond, not actually convicted of the DUI, but he was fired anyway.
