People who have never had any legal trouble always wonder what is court like?
Well, nothing in life is fair and the justice system is no different, especially when you are dealing with a DUI. When you step into court to fight a DUI charge, you are up against a strong, experienced gang of professionals with seemingly limitless resources all focused on putting you in jail. This is not a level playing field.
Here are the cast of characters they have lined up against you:
Government Prosecutor– The prosecuting attorney you will face is someone who has prosecuted hundreds if not thousands of DUI cases. They know the ins and outs of the court system and know how to use the law to their advantage. Most don’t care if you are really guilty or not, their focus is on winning and getting you convicted.
Police Officers– When in uniform jurors see police officers as trustworthy upholders of the law when in fact some lie through their teeth to get a conviction. All police officers are professional witnesses who have testified many times before and are coached on how to testify in an effective an believable way. When they testify, they will give an account of the events which sounds nothing like the way you remember it and is exaggerated, but not to your benefit.
Forensic Experts– Lab technicians are also seen as trustworthy scientists when in fact some are unreliable and biased. Most are supremely undereducated. While it should be their mindset to search for the correct result, most lab technicians see it as their job to produce positive results- regardless of the truth. After all, the lab techs are on the government payroll and do what they can to support the prosecution.
The government also has seemingly endless resources.
Against a team as dangerous as this you need a professional defense lawyer to fight for you. You need someone who has the experience to match and exceed the prosecution, the aggressive attitude to cross-examine the police, and the scientific knowledge to expose the junk science coming out of the crime labs.
