A Maryland DUI arrest can be challenged by in many different ways.  Recently, the Law Office of Ross W. Albers litigated a Frederick County DWI case in the district court.

Frederick County DUI Attorney Ross W. Albers argued three separate motions to suppress the Frederick County Police Department’s DUI stop, DUI sobriety tests and DUI arrest.

If you believe you were illegally searched and stopped by the Frederick County Police Department, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, or Maryland State Police, then contact the Law Office of Ross W. Albers immediately to schedule a free consultation.

Recently, we were interviewed by the Carroll County Times regarding what happens after a DUI arrest in Maryland. We explained that after a DUI arrest people have three things they need to take care of immediately:

Preliminary inquiry
MVA hearing
Alcohol education program
Today, lets focus on what you can do to help your Howard County DUI case before trial.

Alcohol assessment and treat program

Our office recommends that every client, regardless of guilt or innocence, complete an alcohol assessment and treatment before going to court. While you need to be prepared to take your case trial if necessary, you also must walk into court with the protection of having done an assessment and treatment program.

If you don’t complete an assessment and treatment and are found guilty either after a trial or a plea agreement, then the judge is going to order that you complete an alcohol program as part of your probation.

Sometimes, the court will grant a client unsupervised probation if they have already completed treatment and it's their first DUI arrest.

The depth of your alcohol treatment and education program will depend on a number of factors. First, are you a first time offender, or do you have a history of DUI arrests? Most first time offenders complete a 12 hour course. Subsequent offenders will need a more comprehensive treatment program, perhaps even an in-patient program.

Second, how serious is your DUI case? Was there a car accident? How high was your BAC? First time offenders with a serious DUI case should complete a more intense alcohol education program.

In addition to a treatment program, if you are subsequent offender you should also considering attending AA meetings and getting a sponsor. Every bit of treatment helps mitigate your case.

So, how can you help your DUI case before trial? Work with your attorney to find an appropriate alcohol treatment program, and prepare your defense should your case go to trial.

Maryland’s probation before judgment, or PBJ as it is commonly referred to, is a possible outcome in a criminal, DUI/DWI or traffic case in Carroll County.

A PBJ can be obtained during plea negotiations with the prosecutor and court, by sentence of the court after a guilty plea, or after a finding of guilty during a trial. In order to receive a PBJ, the defendant must first be found guilty. Then, the court will strike the guilty finding and grant the defendant the benefit of a PBJ.

Unfortunately, despite harsher DUI laws and increased education on the dangers of drinking and driving, alcohol related accidents still happen. One arrest in 2016 involved a man from Baltimore, Maryland, who has become an example of poor decision making reminding us all that drinking and driving is never worth it.
