About This Course

Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs is a systemic problem that transcends socioeconomic borders and it capable of impacting anyone at any time. Police and prosecutors are ever vigilant in curtailing this dangerous practice and have numerous resources at their disposal to ensure a successful prosecution. With the advent of diversionary programs and the recent focus of rehabilitation over punishment, however, there are increasingly more and more avenues for defense attorneys to explore that will benefit the client.

This CLE course will provide an overview of the DUI process from the initial police stop through sentencing. Attorneys will learn how conduct DUI stop and investigation, frequent constitutional issues, effective plea negotiations with prosecutors and the criminal and civil penalties that may accrue.

Topics covered include:

  • The initial vehicle stop and subsequent police investigation
  • Typical signs of alcohol/drug consumption that police look for
  • Field sobriety tests
  • Frequent suppression issues
  • Criminal and civil penalties
  • Effective plea negotiations
  • Drug recognition experts
