Charges of driving while under the influence of illegal narcotics, like heroin, cocaineor marijuana, can be far more serious than alcohol-related DUI charges alone, especially if the narcotic is found on or near the accused individual. However, because most law enforcement officers are not drug recognition experts, their cases for arrest (as well as the prosecution’s arguments) may rest solely on the arresting officer’s witness testimony regarding “evidence” of the driver’s impairment. This can open the door for the Denver DUI defense attorneys at the Adams Law Firm to bring in toxicologists and other experts who can argue the charges against our Clients.
At the Adams Law Firm, our skilled Denver DUI defense lawyers understand how to challenge the prosecution’s claims in order to build our Clients the strongest possible defense case. Our unwavering belief in our Clients’ innocence until guilt has been proven strengthens our dedication to fiercely defending our Clients’ rights in any legal setting.
DUI Drugs and Marijuana – Other Charges that Can Be Filed
While DUI cases involving drugs and marijuana can be easy to defend due to the ambiguity of the law, they can, however, come with other charges that may not be as easy to defend. Other charges that can be filed when drugs and DUI arrests occur include (but are not limited to):
Depending on the amount of drugs that may be found on the person at the time of the DUI arrest, felony or federal drug charges may come into play, and these charges are far more serious than DUI charges alone. However, in these cases, our experienced DUI defense lawyers may be able to argue that the drugs were not yours, police unlawfully searched the area where the drugs were found, etc.
