The alcohol version of this charge is one of the most heavily used and frequently received charges in the Roswell Municipal Court system. Many people receive a DUI who have never been in trouble.
This charge is also the most inadequately represented charge in criminal law for clients.
- The Attorney MUST have proper training to assure that the client receives the representation for which they are not only looking but for which they are paying.
- That is why YOU need to find a Lawyer who has the proper training to help you.
- If handled improperly, this charge can affect your license, your criminal history, time spent in jail, community representation and many other issues with your life.
As mentioned the most typical, and frequently used, version for this charge is under alcohol. Officers should have extensive training to properly investigate a DUI charge.
The Attorney should have the same training as the officers (or more) to properly represent YOU in defending YOUR charge
This training assures proper representation for you in the court system and is another reason that YOU need an experienced Attorney. Without an experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer, YOU will not be able to properly defend against a City of Roswell police officer who has not had the proper training and made errors in evaluating your arrest.
Officers should have training under Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), or Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) or Drug Recognition Expert (DRE). These three different levels of training are provided to officers by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration that any investigation into DUI is done properly and assure that citizens are properly arrested. Prior to the involvement of the tests crafted by the NHTSA officers would have you recite the alphabet backwards, pick up coins off the floor and do many other tasks that were “unregulated” and not enforceable.
- Whenever someone is arrested for a DUI in Roswell, the officer is required by law to arrest them and retain their driver’s license.
- The officer then issues a DDS 1205 form. This form is the officer’s notice to you of the officer’s intention to suspend YOUR privileges to operate a motor vehicle.
- You must write a 30 day response letter to stop the suspension.
