Defending Against DUI Charges In Kentucky
It’s always a bit nerve wracking to see police lights flashing in your rearview mirror. That’s true whether you’ve been drinking or not.
Regardless of the reason you were stopped, if a police officer suspects you’ve been drinking, he or she is likely to ask you to take a strenuous field sobriety test and blood-alcohol measurement. If that happens, you may not know what to do.
Of course, – whether you’ve been drinking or not – the first thing you should do after being stopped by the police is contact an experienced defense attorney. The Boyd Law Office has the experience you need to get the best result in your case. Here’s the number you should call: 859-252-0222.
