After being arrested for a crime, the first thing you should do is contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. You should avoid making any statements to law enforcement whenever possible until you have your lawyer present. Even if you feel your statements to be completely harmless, they can later twisted around and used against you in court by prosecutors.

There are many individuals who are arrested for suspected driving under the influence (DUI) offenses. This offense is also referred to as driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII). Some individuals may feel that there is no hope for winning their cases when law enforcement and prosecutors have proof that the defendant failed his or her BAC testing, or blood alcohol concentration testing. This, however, is not the truth. There are many ways to challenge the validity of these tests, as well as many other forms of "evidence" in DUII cases. For individuals who are charged with first-time offenses, they may want to pursue being given an option to complete a DUII Diversion Program in place of more severe penalties.
