Most of us know somebody who, at one time or another, has been accused of Driving While Intoxicated. Whether it is you, a friend, co-worker, or family member, DWI is probably the one criminal offense that will undoubtedly affect at least one person we know well and care about.
If that someone turns out to be you, it is critical that you have a trusted legal advisor who will answer your questions, knows the law, and is capable of zealously defending you in court.
Darren Lee Umphrey is a former Chief Felony Prosecutor in the Criminal District Attorney's Office. He has extensive jury trial experience, and knows, from his experience as a prosecutor, exactly how the state intends to pursue its case against you.
"DRINK. DRIVE. GO TO JAIL”
We've all seen the commercials and billboards. But, is it that simple? The answer is no! Actually, there is nothing simple about DWI. What the billboards don't tell you is that it is not illegal to drink then drive if you are at least 21 years of age. The fact of the matter is that it's only illegal to operate a motor vehicle if you are legally intoxicated.
And, it's the State's burden to prove, beyond all reasonable doubt, that you were physically or mentally impaired, because of alcohol or drugs, at the time you were driving. Or, the State has to prove that your BAC was .08 or greater at the time you were operating your vehicle. Make sure that you hire a lawyer who knows the law and will hold the State to its burden of proof.
