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.
