Securing Evidence Following a DUI Arrest

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

Following a DUI arrest, it's crucial to act quickly. The first step is to retain an experienced attorney from a Napa County Creek DUI law firm. Your Napa County DUI lawyer should then have you return to the scene of your arrest right away. If possible, an investigator may go along with you.

Securing the Scene and the Evidence

You, your attorney's investigator or you both should take plenty of photos of the scene of your arrest in order to freeze it. This is important for a number of reasons, and a prime example is the area in which you were given your field sobriety test. Police reports almost always describe the area as being level and smooth, but that's often untrue. After all, field sobriety tests are most commonly administered on sidewalks, which are often sloped, or on the side of the road, which is typically crowned. The photos you take may show that the tests weren't actually administered on a level surface. While at the scene, the lighting of the area should be checked as well.

Securing Phone Recordings

A reputable Napa County Creek DUI law firm will also advise you to immediately secure recordings of any calls that were made during your arrest. If you called and left someone a message, for instance, it could be evidence that your speech wasn't actually slurred.

Seek Legal Representation Immediately

Don't let your rights be trampled upon following your DUI arrest. A reputable Napa County Creek DUI law firm is an absolute must. Call Blackie Burak now at 1-866-BLCKDUI or (925) 933-4500 .
