Juror Questions in DUI Cases

Posted by Blackie Burak | Mar 25, 2019 | 0 Comments

A jury trial is a cornerstone of the American justice system. As you proceed to trial, your Napa County Creek DUI lawyer can explain the process that awaits you. In particular, your Napa County Creek DUI lawyer may explain voir dire.

Voir Dire Process

This process allows your Napa County DUI attorney to assess how different jurors feel about alcohol and other issues relevant to your case. Your attorney has a few strikes that he or she can use to eliminate potential jurors from being on your jury.

Questions about Alcohol

Your Napa County Creek DUI lawyer can explain that many individuals have strong convictions about alcohol consumption that may cloud their judgment in your case. Your attorney may ask some of the following questions to determine the opinions of jurors regarding alcohol:

  • Do you keep alcohol at home?
  • If so, what kind is it and where do you keep it?
  • When did you last serve alcohol to a guest in your home?
  • Did you let your guest drive home after drinking?
  • Have you ever consumed even a small amount of alcohol and then driven a vehicle?
  • Could you drive safely?

The answers to these questions and others can help reveal the attitudes that jurors have about alcohol and driving. However, even a non-drinker can be unbiased in your DUI trial. By asking follow-up questions, your attorney can determine why someone may not drink alcohol.
