While out and about you were pulled over by Louisiana police. They suspected you of driving while impaired. This is not the first time this has happened to you. In fact, you have a previous DWI conviction on your record. You end up being arrested and charged with yet another DWI, and now you are wondering what this means for your future?
A DWI is not something to take lightly. It can result in you spending time behind bars, having to pay hefty fines and even the loss of your driving privileges. Any of these things can affect your home and professional life in negative ways. With so much on the line, how you fight you DWI case in court is going to matter.
How can I fight a repeat DWI charge? There may be a number of defense options open to you -- such as questioning field sobriety test results or the result of chemical testing. These tests are not entirely accurate, so this may be a good option. Another way to go is to question probable cause. Did the arresting officer have cause to pull you over?
If you are facing another DWI charge in Louisiana, this is not the end for you. Accusations do not mean automatic conviction. With the assistance of legal counsel, you will have the ability to defend yourself; you will have the ability to ask questions; you will have the ability to protect yourself and your rights as you work to achieve the best outcome possible.
