I am honored to have recently addressed the Rhode Island Bar Association in both Providence and Wakefield regarding the successful prosecution and defense of drunk driving (DUI, DWI, OUI) and refusal cases. As the Country strives for more stringent drunk driving laws, it is important for both prosecutors and defense attorneys to be aware of the most recent case law in connection with drunk driving and/or Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test cases. This continuing legal education program focused on the issues beyond the basics of these types of complicated cases. Significant recent cases addressing the admissibility of chemical test results, the admissibility of the standardized field sobriety tests, and the suspect's statutory and constitutional rights to a timely release on bail were analyzed. Emphasis was given to the teaching of advanced trial techniques and practice pointers for the successful prosecution and defense of DUI and Refusal cases.
The law of drunk driving and refusal to submit to a chemical test is an ever evolving area of the law. If you or a family member has been charged with drunk driving (DUI, DWI, OUI) or refusal to submit to a chemical test in anywhere in Rhode Island, please contact our office.
