Wisconsin DUI Cases Often Turn on Evidentiary Issues

Successfully navigating the criminal legal system requires understanding a lot of legal nuances. Though some of them may seem relatively minor, having very little impact on the outcome of a case, properly utilizing certain aspects of the law can make the difference between a guilty verdict and an acquittal. If you have been charged with a crime like drunk driving, you need to ensure that your criminal defense is thorough, well-prepared, and tailored to your case's facts and legal issues.

For an example, you need only look at the chain of custody issue discussed last week. Finding gaps in the chain of custody, or realizing when the chain was never established, can make a huge difference if you are facing drunk driving charges. But in order to exploit such a defense tactic, you have to know how to raise a proper objection. Failure to do so could leave you susceptible to conviction and limit your options for appeal.
