What’s the legal limit for DUI?
How much can you have before you are under the influence and DUI less safe in Savannah? It depends. It depends on how much time you drink. Are you a man or woman? How big are you? Did you drink on an empty stomach?
It is not against the law to have a drink and drive. Rather, you break the law if you have too many drinks and drive. That’s the law in Chatham County. If you are an adult you may drive after you drank as long as you are not “under the influence of alcohol.” What does that mean? Lawrence Taylor, the Dean of DUI Defense attorneys says that two glasses of wine will not put you under the influence of alcohol or over the legal limit of .08. See his blog post, The DUI Exception to the Constitution. But then Mr. Taylor has another better blog post with a chart, How many drinks can I have? A Florida DUI lawyer says the two drink rule is no good. See his blog post, Florida DUI Attorneys Discuss Why The Two Drink Rule Is Not Correct. But, then why have you heard of people who got a DUI and they had only two drinks? Because DUI is an opinion. If you don’t take the breath test or a blood test, then your liberty depends on the police officer’s opinion of your sobriety. Is this fair, accurate, and reliable?
Prepare for Jury Trial
I pledge allegiance to prepare every one of my DUI cases in Savannah, Georgia like it’s headed straight to a jury trial. I am open to a good plea-bargain, if the deal means no DUI for you. If you walk in to plead out, you’ll never get a good deal because the district attorney knows you aren’t going to do anything about it anyway.
The DUI Police Report
But, the police report looks bad, you say. Until trial the police report is irrelevant. It doesn’t matter what it says, the way is to not get scared and put them to the test — go to trial no matter how bad the report seems. This is the only way. There is no bulletproof police report. All reports can be overcome. All cop’s opinions can be defeated. Now, I make no guarantees. But, there are no foolproof reports. And most of the time, the police report is good for making the officer look like a moron at trial. The Police report is useless to everyone until we have the officer on the stand and can embarrass him. I’m always working on this. So I do it well. I do it to slam your DUI. I know this sounds like bragging, but you have to have confidence to be a champion and that is the only thing I ever wished to be.
