How Can Witnesses Help with DWI Defense?

When people are charged with DWI, they may be able to present witnesses to give testimony that can significantly improve their cases. With the additional assistance of experienced DWI defense lawyers, these defendants may be able to use the testimony as a part of a greater overall defense strategy that can drastically strengthen their cases, resulting in reduced or even dropped charges.

If you’re facing a DWI charge, we may be able to help you by putting our powerful defense resources to work in your case. To learn more about your DWI defense options, contact Raleigh DWI attorney Jim Black today at 919-600-4609.

The Benefits of Reliable Witnesses

In many DWI defense cases, a person may protest against a police officer’s statements and reports about his or her condition at the time of the arrest. However, the courts will often side with the officer’s statements, not the defendant’s. Fortunately, witnesses may be to help prove that the police officer’s reports are false or misleading.Witnesses can help in the following ways:

  • Verify how much a person had to drink before getting in the vehicle
  • Explain what was happening at the time of any supposedly suspicious driving activities
  • Describe any physical conditions that may have contributed to driving impairment
  • Discuss any diseases or medications that may have lead to physical signs of intoxication

While these witnesses may not be able to challenge Breathalyzer results and similar pieces of evidence, they can weaken law enforcement officials’ claims that are made without substantial evidence. Instead, a dedicated DWI attorney may be able to handle defense concerns regarding alcohol testing evidence.
