The laws in Arizona regarding DUI’s give police a great deal of leeway in determining whether a driver was operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If you have been arrested for a drug-related DUI, the steps you take may be critical to saving your driving privileges and determining your legal status. Will you end up with a criminal record as well as losing your driver’s license? Act as soon as possible for the best results.
Have you been driving under the influence of a drug such as the following?
Prescription medications: OxyContin, hydrocodone, Vicodin or Percocet
Other prescription drugs that could affect your ability to operate the car, including sedatives
Maybe you consumed one of these drugs a long time ago – and trace amounts were still detected in your bloodstream when you submitted to chemical tests at the time of the arrest. Perhaps you did not knowingly take any drugs – but now you must contest the charges versus the prosecutor who is working with police-gathered “evidence.”
Even if the state is engaged in the “war on drugs,” rights of the accused still apply, in a drug-related DUI situation. Rosenstein Law Group will not allow our clients’ rights to be violated.
