Numerous Maryland drivers are arrested each year for drunk driving charges.
Some of these drivers may have been certain that they had not drunk too
much before getting behind the wheel. The thing is, even if you have only
drunk a little bit of alcohol at a party, your breath may still have the
smell of alcohol on it and a police officer might wrongly judge you as
inebriated when it was actually safe for you to drive.
Baltimore police officers have an important responsibility to keep the
roadways safe and clear of intoxicated and dangerous drivers. However,
police are not infallible in their judgments and they are definitely known
to make mistakes. Fortunately, Maryland courts are well aware of the fact
that officers do not always make the right decisions when choosing to
arrest and charge individuals with crimes. It is also for this reason
that every Maryland driver accused of drunk driving will have the opportunity
to assert legal defenses in court to maintain his or her innocence.
Every DUI case is different and requires an in-depth analysis to reveal
the best strategies for defense. For this reason,
drivers accused of crimes in Baltimore will want to be as up-front as possible with their legal representatives,
to be sure that they can formulate strategies to address different weaknesses
in their cases, while taking advantage of any areas of strength.
