Legal Defenses

The judicial system is a complicated structure, and there are a number of legal methods that can allow for certain pieces of evidence to be dismissed, or your case to be thrown out entirely. Statesboro DUI attorney Matt Hube understands Georgia law and how it can be used to defend your DUI case.

Under Georgia DUI law, the police must have a reasonable suspicion that you are breaking a law before they can pull you over; and they must have probable cause before they can arrest you with a DUI. Statesboro DUI attorney Matt Hube will examine the facts surrounding your traffic stop and arrest to determine whether these legal terms were met.

Another right common to every American states that any evidence gathered as a direct violation of your rights cannot be admissible in court. This “fruit of the poisonous tree” precept also means that—if your attorney can prove that the police did not have probable cause to detain or arrest you—any blood, breath, or urine tests you submitted to must be thrown out of court. Without this evidence, the police will likely not have a case.

Moreover, the breathalyzer machines used by the police are subject to rigorous maintenance and testing routines to ensure they are properly calibrated and in good working condition. If this routine was not followed, the accuracy of the machine is suspect and any evidence it gathered should not be admissible in court.

Statesboro DUI attorney Matt Hube can use a number of methods to defend your Georgia DUI case, but each defense depends on the unique facts specific to your case. Matt Hube will examine your records and come up with the best legal defense to your case. Don’t hesitate; you only have a limited time to challenge your license suspension! Call us today!
