Dumb DUI Defense

To all those who say that all DUI lawyer are the same, I present to you…the dumbest DUI defense in the world:

Lionel_HutzDina Lohan drove totally wasted and it’s all because the paparazzi drove her to the bottle and then the steering wheel … this according to her bizarre lawyer.

Dina and her lawyer, Mark Heller, appeared for a routine hearing in her drunk driving case, and then Heller offered up the indefensible defense.

Here’s the argument … Dina’s lifestyle presents lots of challenges and stress, brought on by the barrage of photogs that follow her.  Those stresses caused Dina to down enough alcohol to register a .20 blood alcohol level as she tooled down the road.  Short story — it’s our fault, not hers.

No science. No legal challenge. No procedural challenge. No argument of the facts. Simply ludicrous. A lot of people have stressful lives. Drunk driving is a choice. Just because her daughter is a celebrity doesn’t excuse her from the consequences of her actions, if these allegations are true. This bit of negative press was totally avoidable. It is a fine example of how you need to have an experienced DUI attorney on your side who understands the press, the science, the facts, the law, and, yes, even common sense.
