When Were You Stopped, and When Were You Tested?
Posted By: Michael Schlossser

If you have had a run-in with High Point police and have been charged with DWI, it is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. The consequences of a DWI conviction can be severe, even for a first time offense. In addition, the damage that can be caused to your future and your reputation are not worth the risk, especially if your High Point DWI attorney can get the charges against you dropped altogether.

Many people who are charged with DWI mistakenly assume that if a test showed they were intoxicated, that means they cannot fight the charge. However, your High Point DWI attorney knows that such tests are often flawed and the results not always accurate. For example, your BAC (blood alcohol content) continues to rise once you have stopped drinking. That means if a test were done at a restaurant where you’d had a glass of wine, your BAC would be lower than when you were actually driving. And, depending upon when you were stopped by the police and how long it took before you were actually tested, it could be higher still at the time of the test than when you were actually operating your vehicle. That means your DWI attorney may be able to show that when you were driving, you were not, in fact, intoxicated.

Obviously, there are complex legalities involved when it comes to fighting a drunk driving charge. To help you sort those confusing details out and to provide you with the defense you need, a High Point DWI attorney at The Law Firm of Schlosser & Pritchett can assist you.
