Cross Examination of Witnesses at DUI Trial
CAN AN EFFECTIVE CROSS-EXAMINATION IN A DUI CASE HELP YOU IN A LOS ANGELES COURTROOM?
The prosecutors usually have the deck stacked in their favor when it comes to a DUI case in Los Angeles County. However, there are ways to turn the tide in the defendant's favor, that only the best and most savvy DUI attorneys have the ability to pull off for their clients.
I have had some of my greatest victories in DUI cases when I have had the opportunity to challenge the prosecutor's case through an effective cross-examination of their most crucial witnesses. Whether it be challenging the stop of my client's vehicle or attacking a statement that was taken by my client, the weapon of cross-examination in the right DUI case can mean the difference between winning and losing and my client suffering the most severe consequences a DUI case can dole out and them tasting the sweetness of victory.
Challenging The Prosecutor's Case
There is nothing in the world more sweet for a DUI lawyer than dismantling the prosecutor's case piece by piece. They are so used to winning that it has a truly sobering effect on them when their case is ripped away from them and dismissed.
This does not only last for the case you are defending, it carries over into other cases where a client has a good legal issue to be flushed out. They know that when I tell them that my client is not taking a particular deal or will not plead to anything, that I mean business and I am out to destroy their case and embarrass them in the process.
Not every case can be dismissed, but it is worth its weight in gold if you have a attorney who knows the right case to challenge them on and who knows the value of a case and can execute the winning strategy every single time.
When you have a DUI case, you should be looking for an attorney who will give you a straight forward assessment of your case and tell you what you can and can not expect out of your case. It does you no good if the sales person on the other end of the line simply tells you a bunch of defenses that have nothing to do with your particular case.
When someone speaks to your particular case with know of the facts and the experience to back it up, this gives you the peace of mind you need to move on and forward from your DUI in a positive manner, confident you have someone on your side that will fight for you and make sure you get the best result based on your particular set of circumstances.
The point of cross examination is to expose any ambiguities in the witness testimony. As your attorney, we use cross examination to discredit the arresting officer's testimony to the best of our ability. We use the opportunity of cross examining to poke holes in the prosecution's case.
We use cross examination to bring out all the positive things our client did during the arrest. The prosecution will only point all the errors and mistakes our client did during the arrest; things that a sober person may engage in; and use it as evidence to try and prove driving under the influence. Our job is to step in and step up and contest the ambiguous statements and insufficient evidence.
