DUI Defense in Virginia or Tennessee:  The legislatures have seen fit to impose mandatory minimum sentences and escalation of punishment for DUI, Drunk Driving and DWI regardless of circumstances. Many of thee defenses to a DUI charge are based upon the Constitution and Statutory Requirements.  Yes, there is a presumption of intoxication at .08 BAC, but it can be overcome. 

Remember,  You do not have to testify against your self.  Simply tell the Officer politely that you want your Attorney.  The interrogation is suppose to stop.  This is not to say that you should not cooperate with the Officers. Do so, but assert your rights and call us to protect them.  Remember you are a suspect. You cannot talk your way out of a DUI charge.

Update 4/15/12:  irginia Supreme Court upheld the DUI conviction of a Latino in Alexandria, who had pulled off the road and cut off his ignition, such that car was not running and the lights were off. Mr Enriquez certainly was not driving or operating the motor vehicle as he had fallen asleep and had to be awakened by the officers. Nevertheless, the keys were in the ignition and the radio was on, so the Virginia Supremes concluded that Mr. Enriquez was in control of the vehicle.

Update 4/17/2013: The United States Supreme Court struck down a Missouri statute which allowed the warrantless taking of blood in a DUI Case. See http://blslawblog.blogspot.com/
