Fighting Marijuana-Related DUI Charges

While the arrest process for DUI involving marijuana is similar to that of DUI involving alcohol, there are also a number of unique aspects to these cases. Law enforcement officers test for DUI involving marijuana differently. Also, besides facing a DUI arrest, you may also face charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana while driving. Therefore, it is important to have legal representation that understands North Dakota’s DUI laws. Your lawyer should also routinely defend individuals charged with drug-related crimes and understand how prosecutors attempt to prove their charges in marijuana and DUI-related cases.

Dusek Law can advise you of your legal options when charged with DUI and marijuana-related offenses. Our law office represents individuals charged with every sort of crime. We know how to challenge chemical tests on the grounds of such tests being faulty or irrelevant to proving a charge of DUI. We also know how to challenge the actions of law enforcement officers when the arrest takes place. We know what approaches will and will not work in court. We understand the penalties you face, and we will fight for you and do what is necessary to protect your interests and rights.

Chemical Testing In Marijuana-Related DUI Matters

Unlike alcohol, marijuana can remain in the blood long after the marijuana was actually used. This means is that a person can test positive for marijuana while not actually being under the influence of the drug.

For more than 20 years, attorney David Dusek has represented individuals charged with DUI. He has received advanced level training regarding DUI defense strategies that focus upon chemical testing and the problems related to such testing.

Challenging Evidence And Testimony At Trial

Prosecutors will attempt to introduce other evidence into these cases based upon the observations of law officers. This can include observations of the driver’s behavior at the time of the arrest and observations during the administration of field sobriety tests. It is often possible to challenge such observations through examination of the officers and by raising objections to inadmissible evidence.

Dusek Law will put its knowledge and experience to work for you when challenging evidence. Dusek Law also has access to investigators and experts who can testify on your behalf.

While David Dusek can negotiate for the best possible resolution for you, he can also vigorously and successfully defend your case in court if necessary.
