Understanding DUI with Drugs

Unlike alcohol-related DUIs, where blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels are straightforward indicators, DUI with drugs involves more nuanced considerations. It’s not just about illegal drugs; even prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs can impair your ability to drive. In Georgia, as in many states, the law is clear: if you’re found operating a vehicle under the influence of any drug that impairs your driving ability, you could be charged with a DUI. 

The Legal Implications

A DUI with drugs charge can have significant consequences. Beyond the immediate legal penalties, which may include fines, jail time, and license suspension, there are long-term impacts on your insurance rates, employment opportunities, and overall reputation. These are serious charges that demand a serious defense.

The Role of Toxicology in DUI with Drugs Cases

One of the key aspects of defending against a DUI with drugs charge is understanding and challenging the toxicology evidence. This evidence, often obtained through blood tests, is central to the prosecution’s case. However, these tests are not infallible. At the Law Office of Vic Wiegand, we delve deep into the science behind these tests, questioning their accuracy and reliability, and bringing to light any procedural errors that may have occurred.

Crafting a Strong Defense Strategy

Every case is unique, and our approach is always tailored to the specific circumstances of each client. We explore every avenue, from questioning the legality of the traffic stop to challenging the administration and results of sobriety tests. Our goal is to ensure that your side of the story is heard and that you receive a robust defense.

Your Rights During a DUI Stop

It’s crucial to know your rights if you’re stopped for a suspected DUI. You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. It’s often in your best interest to exercise these rights. Anything you say can be used against you, and field sobriety tests can be subjective and flawed. Remember, asking for a lawyer is not an admission of guilt; it’s a declaration of your rights.
