Although DUI charges are usually associated with alcohol, one can face DUI charges that are a result of impaired driving abilities due to over the counter drugs, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs and narcotics as well. These charges are usually supported by evidence found in a blood or urine test, or a field sobriety test, along with statements from the arresting officers regarding the defendant's behavior at the time of arrest. If you have been charged with a DUI involving drugs, contact an Orlando DUI attorney to discuss your case and your options for possible defense strategies.
Often times, police officers will search a vehicle and find drugs or drug-related paraphernalia. This can be very detrimental evidence in court. However, not all searches are conducted by officers in a legal way, and in their haste to make an arrest, if they don't properly follow procedure, the evidence that they find in a search may end up being thrown out if it can be proven that it was an illegal search.
