Building a Defense in Your Favor
When these cases go to trial, prosecutors are relentless in their pursuit
of a conviction when fatal accidents are the cause of alcohol consumption.
They will look to all of the available evidence to lay blame on a possibly
intoxicated driver, as there is often bias in the justice system. Therefore,
the investigation may resort to hurried and swift accusations.
Prosecutors must prove the following:
- If the driver was aged 21 or older, and had a blood-alcohol concentration
(BAC) of 0.08% or above
- If the driver was under the age of 21, and had a BAC of 0.05% or higher
- The driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the
accident and committed a misdemeanor or another
- The driver committed an illegal act that may have led to negligence, and
subsequently caused the death of another person
