Massachusetts criminal trial attorney Steve Brooks answers some questions you may have about operating under the influence cases were drugs are involved.
Although just as serious, operating under the influence charges involving drugs is different than those involving alcohol. When cases involve drugs, the government has a responsibility to show that you were under the influence and must bring a medical expert into court to prove it. The expert has to show that the officer who arrested you did so because you were under the influence, which may prove difficult as officers tend not to be fully trained in how to recognize drugs in a person and can easily be wrong. Along with that, the government also has to prove that you were under the influence of certain drugs as they are the only ones that fall under the influence law. You may want a lot more information if you or your loved one has been arrested for being under the influence while driving. Watch the video now to learn more.
