Drugged driving defense in South Carolina

South Carolina charges related to drugged driving are different compared to charges relating to driving under the influence of alcohol. In many drunk driving cases, authorities are able to pinpoint an individual's blood alcohol content as over the limit. However, in the case of drugged driving, there may not be any kind of test that can prove whether the driver had the drugs in his or her system or not while driving.

That said, verifiable proof that a substance was present in an individual's bloodstream is not always required to prove that he or she was guilty of drugged driving. Indeed, police might find evidence of illegal drugs or pharmaceuticals inside an accused person's vehicle. They might use that evidence along with evidence from failed field sobriety tests to convict the individual.

At the Lord Law Firm, we have dealt with virtually every kind of drugged driving situation that can occur. We are committed to defending drivers' rights in court when they are wrongly accused of drugged driving offenses. We are also committed to helping those who may actually be guilty of the crime to navigate the criminal court system and try to limit the chances and/or severity of punishments relating to the offenses.

Depending on the details of the facts pertaining to the case, different strategies might be used to defend a driver accused of drugged driving. For example, in cases of intoxication by pharmaceutical drugs, it might be successfully argued that the accused driver was unaware of his or her level of intoxication. If the person has a valid prescription for the pharmaceutical at issue, then he or she may be able to bypass conviction.
