One of the first tasks a DUI lawyer at trial is to reverse the jury’s stereotype of a “DUI” or “drunk driver.” Not all incidents where an individual is driving under the influence are equal, and as with all potential crimes, there are degrees of blameworthiness. What we reinforce to juries in the opening statement is that everyone who finds themselves accused of a crime comes before them “presumed innocent.” Then, the State of South Carolina must prove them guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Why such a high standard of proof required. Because it is the State of South Carolina, with all of its resources, against an individual with limited means to defend themselves. That standard makes the fight just a little more balanced. As you can see, it is critical that you hire an experienced criminal trial attorney as early as possible. There is simply too much at stake to risk hiring the wrong lawyer.
