Dallas DUID Attorney

Fort Worth Defense Attorney for Driving Under Influence of Drugs

When a Texas State Trooper pulls you over on suspicion of Driving Under the Influence of Drugs (DUID), it is crucial to remember your rights. Because it is so much harder to accurately test current drug use in a case of DUID, the main evidence used in these trials is officer testimony. Many Fort Worth residents will try to explain to the officer that they were merely using a prescription drug, thinking this will get them off the hook. Unfortunately, it is not legal to drive on any drug that influences your normal mental and physical abilities, meaning your attempted defense may be used against you as an admission of guilt.

Practically every Dallas - Fort Worth DWI attorney recommends against taking a field sobriety test when you are accused of driving drunk, it is even worse to take these tests when you are accused of taking drugs. All drugs have different reactions and anything you do on the test can be used as evidence of drug use. These tests were not created for drugs.

When it comes to chemical tests, the breathalyzer test will not be used when you are suspected of DUID. Instead, an officer will request you take either a urine or blood test. If you have been requested to take a urine tests, you may be in luck. Your Dallas - Fort Worth DUI lawyer may be able to demonstrate that any drugs that showed up on this test could have been taken, and their effects over with, long before you were arrested.

If you are convicted of DUID, the penalties will be the exact same as those for a DWI, except that you may also be charged with drug possession if the Metroplex officer found any narcotics in your vehicle. In either case, your Dallas - Fort Worth Lawyer should be able to help defend you in court. If the officer pulled you over without reason or searched your vehicle with no probable cause, your constitutional rights were violated and the charges may be dropped.
