Drugs – Prescription Medication

When a police officer finds out that a motorist is taking prescription medicine, they will still try to pursue DUI charges. So, you can get charged with DUI even if you were taking your lawfully prescribed medicine.

Our client was in an accident and had two prescribed medications in his system. The police officer claimed that our client's speech was slurred and that he had pinpoint pupils. The client was charged with driving under the influence of drugs. Our client was facing 90 days in jail and an 18-month license suspension. We hired a medical expert who rendered the opinion that the prescription medications taken by our client was within the therapeutic limits and was clearly acceptable. The expert explained that our client had been taking these medications for a long time and that the slurred speech and dilated pupils were most likely after effects of a concussion. The result: All charges were dropped.
