Colorado Private Detective
If you’ve been arrested on suspicion of DUI in Colorado, it doesn’t automatically mean that you will also be convicted of a DUI. There are many different rules that can affect the outcome of your case. There are also many defenses available to those who have been arrested on suspicion of a DUI. Here are a few:
1: Your Colorado DUI breath test was inaccurate
Breath tests are renown for giving false positive results for a number of reasons. A false result can be caused by many factors including your diet, health conditions, and whether or not you have consumed other substances that contain alcohol (like mouthwash). External factors like the temperature of the room can also cause a false positive.
2: Your Colorado DUI breath testing procedures weren’t correctly followed
There are strict procedures surrounding DUI breath tests to ensure that the results are accurate. If these procedures are not properly followed then it can be argued that the reading of the breath test is false.
Procedural errors associated with a DUI breath test may include:
- The breathalyzer not being properly calibrated
- The officer administering the test was not properly trained on how to administer the test
- The operator did not observe you for 20 minutes before conducting the test
- You were not tested within 2 hrs of driving
- Accurate records of the result were not kept
3: There was no probable cause for your traffic stop
Before you can be pulled over and detained for a DUI investigation, arrested for a DUI, DWAI, or UDD, or even required to take any evidentiary chemical test (like the breathalyzer test, for example), a law enforcement officer must have probable cause for pulling you over in the first place.
Probable cause means that an officer has reasonable suspicion or belief that you are engaged in criminal activity. Without first having probable cause, an officer is not legally allowed to build a case against you.
If an officer can be proven to have pulled you over without probable cause, then the evidence they obtain after pulling you over can be thrown out of court.
4: You were not advised of your Miranda rights
Miranda rights play an important role in the process included in an arrest. If you have been arrested, and the officer is conducting a custodial interrogation, then they must read you your Miranda rights. If you have not had your Miranda rights read to you, then anything you do say needs to be excluded from evidence. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that anything you say prior to your arrest—and therefor prior to your Miranda rights being read to you—can and likely will be used against you in a court of law.
Death investigations are some of the most complex and emotional investigations an investigator can undertake.
Homicide or Accidental Death: I investigated what appeared to be a homicide. The husband found his wife dead on the floor of the kitchen. The body was in a semi-fetal position, there were ligature marks on her neck and there was a cigarette butt stuck to the end of her nose. The husband claimed that he and his wife argued after she got home late from the bar and was intoxicated. He went to bed, but later got worried when she didn’t come upstairs. He said he went downstairs and it was dark and he tripped over something as he was reaching for the light switch. When he turned on the light, he discovered her body on the floor. In the course of the investigation, I was able to determine that the female died from accidental asphyxiation. Due to her intoxication, she was bent over the trash can in the kitchen, which was full and near the top were several dozen cigarette butts. Sometime during the process of her bending over the trash can, she lost consciousness and accidentally asphyxiated herself on the edge of the trash can due to her body weight. The marks on her neck and forensic evidence proved this truth. When the husband came downstairs, she was already dead and tripped over her body, which caused her to fall over from her original position. The cigarette butt that was on her nose was from the trash can which stuck to her as she fell over to the ground. That cigarette butt, and its position, were vital clues in determining the outcome of the investigation. This was an accident, not a homicide. You can imagine the importance of getting this case solved correctly!
Suicide or Accidental Death: I investigated what appeared to be a suicide by hanging. The adult male had been dead for several hours and was found hanging from a basement rafter with a crude noose around his neck. In the course of the investigation, it was determined that the male died from what was known as Erotic Asphyxiation. This was an accident, not a suicide. Why is this important?
- Peace for the family in knowing what really happened.
- Insurance companies sometimes do not pay out claims on suicides, so it was important to get to the truth and investigate every piece of evidence available, to include interviewing family and friends.
