Olathe DUI Defense Attorney

Have You Been Arrested for DUI in Johnson County?

A person who cannot safely operate a motor vehicle or boat while under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, or over-the-counter medications could be arrested and charged with a DUI. A DUI is a serious criminal offense and carries stiff penalties. If you or someone you know has been charged with a DUI you need seek immediate legal advice from an Olathe criminal defense attorney who can aggressively defend your rights. My law firm of John E. Harvell, P.A. has extensive experience in successfully representing individuals who have been charged with driving under the influence.

What Can Happen After a DUI Charge?

A person convicted of driving under the influence may lose driving privileges, face heavy fines and possible incarceration. Many factors can influence the outcome of a DUI charge such as prior convictions, the involvement of minors, was there an accident with injuries, or whether or not the offender submitted to or refused to take a sobriety test. Kansas has toughened its stance on DUI offenders. In the past, only the prior five years of driving history could be considered at sentencing time but now a lifetime of driving history can be taken into account.

A DUI defense lawyer can and should attack the government's driving under the influence evidence. For example, was the person who conducted the sobriety test sufficiently trained to do so and was it administered correctly? Independent witnesses familiar with the testing procedure can attest to your lack of being under the influence by examining the sobriety test results. You need someone who will defend you and work to help you retain your driving privileges, stay out jail, and reduce your fines. That is why you need a criminal defense attorney experienced in DUI cases to assist you through the legal procedure, fight for your rights and demand the best outcome possible for you.
