We'll do our best to identify any holes in the prosecution's case
We will start by examining the prosecution's case to see if there are any holes. Keep in mind that Attorney Fell served as an Orange County Senior Deputy District Attorney for almost 20 years. He provided guidance on how to handle evidence for a range of offenses to both police and prosecutors. The outcome? He is adept at understanding how they gather evidence, how they construct a case, and what strategies they can employ to make their case seem more compelling than it actually is.
All of these elements must be proven by the prosecution
Be aware that the prosecution cannot prove their case by just showing a video of you leaving a DUI stop. In reality, they must demonstrate a number of factors, such as:
- You specifically intended to avoid the policeman.
- The police officer's vehicle was visibly marked.
- The involved officer was dressed in a uniform.
- On the officer's car, there was at least one red light flashing.
- The cop was using the siren.
We can attempt to get the case dropped or otherwise addressed before you go to trial if any of these elements are in doubt since that means the prosecution has not proven their case.
It is crucial to have an accomplished lawyer on your side
The truth is that prosecutors and police generally do not like it when people avoid arrest. They might view it as a test of their authority and pursue the DUI case against you more vigorously than they otherwise would have. It is crucial that you engage with a knowledgeable DUI attorney to defend this charge for these and other causes.
