Illegal traffic stop: If the police officer didn’t have a valid reason to pull you over, it could be considered an unlawful traffic stop. If a judge agrees with this argument, the DWI charge could be dismissed.
Lack of probable cause: The police must have a reasonable suspicion that you were driving under the influence to make a DWI arrest. If there is no clear evidence or probable cause, a lawyer can argue that the charge should be dismissed.
Issues with field sobriety tests: Field sobriety tests are not always accurate indicators of impairment. If the tests were improperly conducted or there are doubts about their validity, a lawyer can challenge their reliability, which could lead to the dismissal of the charge.
Problems with breathalyzer or blood tests: Breathalyzer or blood tests are commonly used to measure blood alcohol concentration (BAC). However, these tests can be flawed or mishandled. If there are issues with the administration or accuracy of these tests, a lawyer can argue for dismissal of the charge.
Violation of your rights: If your constitutional rights were violated during the arrest or investigation, such as improper search or seizure, a lawyer can challenge the legality of the proceedings. If successful, the DWI charge may be dismissed.
Insufficient evidence: If the prosecutor lacks enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were driving while intoxicated, a lawyer can argue for the dismissal of the charge due to insufficient evidence.
