The recently posted article explains that the DUI laws in Los Angeles are based on the California Vehicle Code Section 23152. It states that the DUI offense can be committed by anyone who is under influence of drugs or alcohol who operates any kind of motor vehicle, including boats, trains or airplanes. There are two components: first, there is an impairment as a result of the consumption of drugs or alcohol; and second, the person is incapable of operating the vehicle.
It is the second component that is interesting as this is determined by the amount of alcohol in the blood. In California, if the concentration of alcohol in the blood is more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood, the person is considered to be unable to operate the vehicle. This is where the experienced lawyers at Los Angeles DUI Lawyer have been able to successfully defend their clients from DUI charges, by challenging the evidence offered by the prosecution on highly technical grounds.
The proof for impaired driving is very much dependent on the observation of eye witnesses and the investigating police officer. While proof that the person charged with DUI has more than 80mg of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood is based on a breath sample or a blood sample, this can be questioned based on technical grounds. Furthermore, this is even more complex in cases of impaired driving as a result of the consumption of drugs. In this case, a Drug Recognition Expert must conduct an evaluation and reports are required to charge the accused.
According to the article, some of the vital elements needed to prove a DUI offense are the date, time, jurisdiction, and the identity of the person accused of DUI. There are rules provided by the DUI laws that allow the arresting officer to detain the accused person based on reasonable suspicion that he or she has drugs or alcohol in his/her body and that this same person was operating or in control of a motor vehicle. The officer must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the ability of the accused to drive was impaired at that time and that this was caused the consumption of drugs or alcohol.
Another important factor for the defense is that some movement of the vehicle is necessary in order to prove that the accused was driving. Courts in California have made this assertion. Furthermore, the courts have also indicated that this movement can be proven by circumstantial evidence.
According to the Los Angeles DUI Lawyer, there are effective strategies to be used by the DUI lawyer to win a DUI case. Some of these are: challenging the legality of the DUI checkpoint stop; citing Title 17 violations; proving there was no mental impairment; challenging the Blood Alcohol Concentration results from the breath tests; and more.
