Perhaps the most fact-intensive charge in Virginia is the charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Police must follow very specific guidelines when arresting an individual for DUI and a failure to follow even one of these steps can lead to an outright dismissal of the case. The steps an officer must follow to get a DUI charge to stick start before the officer even pulls you over and do not end with your arrest. Even after an officer has arrested you, he or she can make mistakes that can result in an aquittal. A Loudoun DUI is subject to many possible defenses and when police officers do not follow the letter of the law or make miss a step, they can have serious problems carrying the burden of a conviction. You are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
