Drugs and Driving

Criminal charges of DWI are not only alcohol-related. Under Texas law, it is just as much of a crime to drive while impaired by a drug, be it a controlled substance or a perfectly legal over-the-counter medication.

The challenge with DWI cases involving drugs is determining out how much of the drug is in your system. There is no method that is 100% accurate, and intoxication levels vary from person to person.

If you have recently been arrested for driving while impaired due to taking drugs, you need an effective legal advocate. The attorney at the Law Offices of Ned Barnett has extensive experience handling DWI cases involving drugs.

Proven DWI Defense Strategies

Just because you have been charged with a DWI does not mean that you will be convicted of the charge. In fact, it is not uncommon for us to discover errors in the prosecution's case. It could be that:

  • There was no probable cause to pull you over.
  • Your constitutional rights were violated when they conducted the police stop or at some point during the arrest procedure.
  • The testing of your blood or breath may have been done incorrectly, or
  • The testing device may not have been properly maintained/calibrated.

With his extensive experience in DWI defense, Mr. Barnett is adept at determining weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.
