Can you challenge to Rhode Island DUI Charges?

As an experienced Rhode Island criminal defense attorney, we know how to navigate Rhode Island's legal process to resolve your criminal charges in a manner that is the best under the circumstances.  Sometimes that means taking your case to trial where we can challenge whether or not the Police Officer had reasonable suspicion to pull you over at the time of the incident. If you took a breathalyzer test after being pulled over by police, we can challenge the results of the breath test or other chemical tests. Was the device properly maintained and correctly calibrated to ensure accurate results? Was the test administered by an office who was certified to do so? And was the test performed in an ideal environment? Were proper protocols followed during the breathalyzer test? If you performed any field sobriety tests, we can challenge those as well. Were they conducted in the correct and appropriate manner? They can yield inaccurate blood alcohol concentration results if they aren't handled correctly.

There are many other defensive strategies that can be used in your unique case, which we will discuss when you contact our firm and walk you through the entire legal process. If you or anyone you know is facing a DUI in Rhode Island, it is important that you do not take these charges lightly. You do not have to simply enter a plea deal and plead guilty. We can ease the stress and help you defeat your case or potentially negotiate a reduction in the charges to other charges such as reckless driving which do not carry many of the maximum penalties that a DUI charge does. Please contact my office today. We will provide you with a free consultation, work to obtain a copy of your Police Report, and let you know exactly what we can do to help.  You do not need to suffer with a license suspension. In 2022, some recently enacted drunk driving laws can allow to you to continue to drive to work, medical appointments, child care pickup, completion of your hours of community service and drop-off while using an ignition interlock device.  Don't delay, talk to an experienced Rhode Island criminal defense lawyer today about how to get set up with a Rhode Island conditional hardship license utilizing an ignition interlock device.
