Cargos por Conducir bajo la influencia

La ley de los Estados Unidos es severa respecto a la Conducción Bajo Influencia de sustancias (DUI). Este delito es uno de los más comunes, dado que algunas personas que han tomado algunas copas, pueden llegar a considerar que no están lo suficientemente embriagados, como para poder conducir su coche unas cuantas manzanas hasta su hogar. Sin embargo para la ley federal este es un delito y como tal debe ser castigado.

Para un oficial de policía que lo detenga, si su nivel de alcohol está bajo 0.8 no es considerada una infracción grave; en caso de que este sea superior a 0.14, estará en problemas con la ley federal. Una vez que el oficial lo requiera, le pedirá si permite hacer la prueba de alcoholemia en sangre, aliento o en orina. Si la persona se niega, automáticamente perderá su licencia de conducción. Del mismo modo, dependiendo de las características de la situación, es decir, si hay daños colaterales a propiedad ajena o estatal, heridos o incluso muertos a causa del accidente, la situación puede agravarse. Por tal motivo, es preciso que una vez que usted sea detenido, se ponga en contacto con un abogado experto en DUI en Atlanta como Matthew C. Hines.

Aunque existe un margen de duda razonable, para que alguien sea arrestado por cargo de DUI en Atlanta, si existe una evidencia contundente para demostrar que usted ha cometido el delito, será detenido. Sin embargo, hay que tener en cuenta que todo ciudadano aunque esté bajo arresto, tiene unas garantías constitucionales para que pueda defenderse legítimamente durante un juicio. Los oficiales de policía de Atlanta están debidamente entrenados para detectar algunas características, para sospechar que alguien se encuentra en estado de embriaguez. Entre otras, puede tener mayores probabilidades de ser arrestado si son detectadas alugnas de las siguientes características:

  • el olor a alcohol
  • pobre estado de alerta
  • aspecto personal desaliñado
  • ojos rojizos
  • torpeza al hablar o moverse

A partir de ese momento, el acusado tiene hasta 48 horas, para presentarse con su abogado a escuchar cargos. Este espacio de tiempo es vital para poder tomar decisiones respecto a su caso particular. El abogado Matthew C. Hines, podrá agendar una cita para escucharlo y aconsejarle cual será la mejor estrategia para su caso.
