Keegan Law Can Help You Understand Your Rights
Every Motorist Has Rights in an OUI Arrest
When an officer makes an arrest for operating under the influence of alcohol (OUI), it is common for the arrested driver to feel fearful, anxious, angry or intimidated. But no matter what emotions you are experiencing, you must be sure to defend your rights. There are two basic rights that you should be aware of if you have been arrested for drunk driving: the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney.
Fight for Your Rights with Help from an OUI Attorney in Boston
In an attempt to force a confession, officers have often attempted to intimidate motorists and force them to talk. This is illegal and you should not speak about your arrest or anything regarding your OUI, even to a police officer. Anyone who is arrested has the right to remain silent about their alleged offense, because their words could be misconstrued and used to their detriment in court. If you’ve been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, speak to no one about the incident unless it is your attorney.
The second basic right of a person facing OUI charges is the right to hire a lawyer. Even if you cannot afford to hire an OUI attorney of your choice, the court will appoint one for you. However, you should seek to choose a lawyer for yourself in order to ensure that they will properly defend you.
