What evidence will be used against me in a DUI case?

Typically, prosecutors will offer several pieces of evidence to convict you of a DUI; the more evidence, the better they prosecution’s chances. Evidence will include a police officer’s testimony (introducing evidence indicating intoxication, such as bloodshot eyes, the smell of alcohol, and/or erratic driving); photographs or video of the scene; eyewitness testimony; and evidence of a blood alcohol level over the legal limit in the form of lab tests and doctors reports. In general, if a blood alcohol test shows a blood alcohol level over the legal limit, your chances at trial are very slim; however, if it is under the legal limit, an officer can still prove intoxication with other evidence, though it is much more difficult to prove the case.
