DWI Charges Involving Drugs Can Be Complex
If you are under the influence of drugs, law enforcement officers can arrest you and charge you with DWI even if you have not consumed any alcohol. You need not have taken the drugs the same day that you are driving to be considered driving under the influence of drugs. You could be charged with DWI if there is any amount of drugs in your body once tested. Even taking a legally prescribed drug could be grounds for a DWI charge.
If you are facing charges for a drug-related DWI offense, it is imperative that you immediately speak with an experienced attorney. A lawyer may be able to work on your behalf to build a strong defense and maximize the chances of a successful outcome in your criminal case.
