An accusation of driving under the influence charge is a serious accusation because its effects go beyond the punishments the court might prefer against you if you are convicted. Below are some helpful tips to help you improve your situation in front of the DUI judge.
Write Down Everything
The circumstances of your arrest will affect the criminal proceedings against you and your defense. Don't rely on your memory to remember everything.
A defendant can claim they are not guilty by reason of temporary insanity if they believe they blacked out or otherwise were not in control of their actions at the time of the crime. That said, this defense can be quite complicated and will require a lot of convincing evidence for a judge or jury to find it believable. If you are going to use this defense in court, you need to find an expert in criminal defense law in your state who will know how to best present this kind of case.
