The number of DUI arrests spikes over the holidays, as law enforcement will usually run sweeps to make even more arrests. If you have been arrested, you must get legal help as soon as possible. Your freedom and your future could depend on it.
Officers are not always right when they arrest you for drunk driving. They may mishandle the evidence, or they may have had no legal basis to pull you over. In either event, your rights have been violated. Officers tend to make more mistakes when they are in busy enforcement periods, especially because they face pressure to make arrests.
At the same time, prosecutors are overwhelmed with an abundance of cases, and they may get sloppy too. They may also be more willing to enter into a favorable plea bargain for you because they have a crushing load of cases on their docket. A high number of cases means that prosecutors are stretched far thinner than at other times of the year.
The common denominators are that you are facing uncertainty in dealing with the legal system, and a lawyer could make a difference in your case. Left on your own, you may make mistakes that could harm your own case. Your DUI charges are about much more than the immediate future. There could be long-term effects on your life and your career that you need to understand right now. The only way to do this is to retain an experienced attorney to take on your case.
