Drunk Driving Offenses are Serious Criminal Cases
When a person is facing any form of a criminal charge in Texas, it’s a serious matter and the same is true for people arrested for DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) related criminal offenses in the Houston area.
There are many occasions when a person might consume alcoholic beverages, and many times, these people think they aren’t too drunk to drive, when the opposite is true in the eyes of law enforcement, who are looking to pad their stats with the arrest of persons suspected of drunk driving.
If you were arrested for drunk driving it doesn’t mean that you were driving drunk, it only means that the officer suspected you of driving drunk. Thus, a court cannot convict a defendant until it is proven in a court of law that the defendant was drunk beyond a reasonable doubt.
The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates has had to point this out to criminal courts in Harris County on numerous occasions which has led to not-guilty verdicts and case dismissals for clients of the firm.
