When Should I Call a DUI Lawyer in Cumming?

Understanding Your Constitutional Rights

There are many reasons that a law enforcement officer might pull you over, but the most likely reason is that they suspect that you are driving while impaired. These stops, sometimes referred to as pretextual stops, are fully valid and constitutional, as are DUI or sobriety checkpoints. It is likely that if you are pulled over under suspicion of DUI that you will be arrested. It is important to remember at this point that you have rights under the Constitution. Take full advantage of your right to remain silent and, while remaining otherwise polite and courteous, say nothing except to ask for a Cumming DUI defense lawyer.

After the Arrest

DUIs are considered arrestable offenses in Georgia, so if the police believe you are guilty, you will most likely be handcuffed and taken in a police squad car. From there, you will be processed according to the county or jurisdictional protocol.

The arrest process will generally include the following steps:

  • Booking the arrestee
  • Photographing
  • Taking fingerprints
  • Conducting a blood alcohol concentration test, either blood, breath, or urine
  • Police interrogation

Police Questioning During a Traffic Stop or After an Arrest

It is a near certainty that police will ask you several questions during your traffic stop or after arresting you for DUI. It is important to remember that you are not required by law to answer any of these questions, and that you are within your rights to request that a lawyer be present during questioning of any kind. Should you make this request immediately before any questioning, you cannot be compelled to answer any questions until your attorney is present – evidence obtained due to improper questioning may be suppressed during the criminal trial.
