1. How Breathalyzer Results Play Into DUI Cases
August 13, 2009

The Breathalyzer is a device used to determine the blood alcohol content of a person and is a common tool police officers use to evaluate drivers suspected of driving impaired. Most people know this, but are a bit less clear on how the breathalyzer results fit into a prosecution. The breathalyzer is a device that people assume can deduce the blood alcohol level of anyone tested. This isn’t entirely true. The test measures the amount of alcohol in a particular breath. This represents an estimate of the blood alcohol content, but not an absolutely accurate figure. The fact the results repre... (read more)

2. Why You Should Let Your Attorney Do The Speaking
August 13, 2009

Getting arrested or accused of a crime is not exactly a fun thing. The naturally tendency when this happens is to want to explain your side of things. This seems logical, but can really get you into more trouble. As a defendant, you should let your attorney do all the talking unless they tell you it is okay. The first thing to understand about the law is you are assumed to know all of it. This is a complete fiction. Nobody knows all the laws. Not you. Not me. Not a Supreme Court Justice. Still, this assumption is a pillar of the legal system. It also means that you can say something that ... (read more)

3. DUI Cases - The Merits of the Breathalyzer or Lack Thereof
August 13, 2009

The tests used to determine drunk driving issues have become so familiar that few really think about them. The breathalyzer, for instance, is accepted as a carte blanche way for determining blood alcohol levels. Ah, but is it? The breathalyzer has been with us in one form or another since the 1920s. Of course, it wasn’t called a breathalyzer at that time. The “breathalyzer” name was actually a particular product that was offered by…wait for it…Smith & Wesson. Yes, the gun maker! Much like Coke, the name slowly came to be used for the entire range of products that measure blood alcohol con... (read more)

4. Ramifications of Proposed Changes to Jones Act by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection
August 12, 2009

Under the Jones Act, the activities of foreign-flagged water vessels transporting merchandise to or between US ports are restricted. This means that the CBP (which is short for U.S. Customs and Border Protection) prohibits foreign flagged ships and sea vessels from performing tasks which include cable-laying, pipe-laying, heavy-lift crane construction and installation, and diving support work. Since the 1950s, ships and vessels that carry merchandise between US ports and US OCS (Outer Continental Shelf) anchored vessels or platforms must be built in the US and owned by citizens. Just rec... (read more)

5. DUI Arrest - Understanding Your Prosecutor
August 12, 2009

A DUI arrest leads to a criminal case. This means you face the possibility of doing time in jail, probation, fines and administrative penalties like the loss of your license. The person who will be in charge of representing the government against you is the prosecutor. A DUI is often the first real experience many people have with the criminal justice system. It is not a fun experience. Most defendants come into the system thinking justice is the goal of the court system. It is, but the means for getting to a “just result” is something very surprising to the average person. In the st... (read more)

6. Who is Elgible for Jones Act Compensation
August 12, 2009

9. DUI Stops and Party Admissions
August 10, 2009

The burden of proof for a crime in the United States is on the prosecution. Many DUI defendants shoot themselves in the foot because they don’t understand the concept of evidentiary party admissions. Miranda rights are something we see all the time on television and in movies. The repeated droning of “You have the right to remain silent…” is such that most people don’t think about what is really being said. When a police officer says the Miranda rights warning to you, he or she is saying you have the right to remain silent and ANYTHING you SAY may be used against you. This is because anyt...
