If you are facing a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) in Colorado, there are several defense strategies that may be available to you. Some potential options include:
Challenging the stop: Your attorney may argue that the traffic stop was not legal and therefore any evidence obtained during the stop should be excluded from trial.
Challenging the field sobriety tests: Field sobriety tests can be subject to interpretation, and your attorney may argue that the results of these tests are unreliable.
Challenging the breath or blood test: Your attorney may argue that the breath or blood test was not administered properly or that the results are inaccurate.
Medical conditions: If you have any medical conditions that could have affected the results of a breath or blood test, your attorney may use this as a defense.
Lack of evidence: If the prosecution does not have enough evidence to prove that you were under the influence, your attorney may argue that the case should be dismissed.
It is important to keep in mind that every case is unique and the best defense strategy will depend on the specific circumstances of your case. It is important to hire an experienced DUI defense attorney who has the knowledge from handling DUI cases in Colorado to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the best defense possible.
