Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
A drugged driving charge can result in harsh penalties. Luckily, if you're hit with DUI charges for drugged driving, there are defenses you can raise.
For example, Kerry Kennedy (daughter of Sen. Robert Kennedy), was once arrested for drugged driving in suburban New York after careening her Lexus into a tractor-trailer. As part of her defense strategy, she claimed she accidentally took a sleeping pill. Is that a valid defense?
Defenses That Don't Work
Defenses That May Work
While there are few defenses that will work, courts can potentially consider mitigating circumstances that could reduce your charge or lessen your sentence. If you woke up to a DUI nightmare after a night with a sleeping pill or other drug, contact a DUI lawyer.
