Very often, I’m asked about what type of evidence leads to people getting convicted of DUI or DWAI. People ask me questions about stops by the police, what suspects say that harm their case, what they should not have said, the arrest, roadsides, PBT’s, blood tests, breath tests, DMV consequences and, of course, the process in criminal court and possible sentences.
