DWI is probably the one criminal offense that will undoubtedly affect at least one person we know and care about. In fact, many of us know somebody who, at one time or another, has been accused of Driving While Intoxicated. If you are arrested for DWI, it is critical that you have a knowledgeable attorney who knows the law, will answer your questions, and is capable of zealously defending you in court.
We’ve all seen the government sponsored commercials and billboards. But, is it that simple? The answer is no! Actually, there is nothing simple about DWI. What the government does not tell you is that it is not illegal to drink then drive if you are at least 21 years of age and not under the influence of alcohol and / or drugs. 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 have lost the normal use of your physical or mental faculties, because of alcohol or drugs, at the time you were driving. Or, the State has to prove that your Blood Alcohol Concentration was .08 or greater at the time you were operating your vehicle. Bill J.
