Canton Law

I was followed leaving an establishment and pulled over. Done the field sobriety test, done well but still taken to OHP HQ. Given blow test and scored .086, blowing directly after the person before, but changing the mouthpiece. Was told I was pulled over for no headlights and erratic speed change, going from a 45 zone to a 35 zone, which I knew was there, and properly executed. Am 95% positive lights were on, and passenger agrees. OHP was sitting at light facing the other way when I pulled out of lot going the opposite way. Don't feel he was right doing a U turn to follow when he only saw in rear mirror. How do I find a local lawyer to assist with this, and the possibility of getting reduced? Totally clean driving record for last 30 years.

This concerns my son. The police report dates are wrong in several places and on one document off by 4 months, another one is month before the incident. Can they use these documents in a court trail for DUI. I reviewed the walk and talk on a video....stood on one leg with no problem. He refuse a blood test and said he would do any other type of testing. He ask for an to speak to an attorney several times ... it is in the police report. The police left at the hospital, did not bring to the police station, did not finger print him under we drove back from MO (590 miles one way). The finger printed him when we drove back for his court appearance. Pleaded not-guilty. The Canton police seem more interest in giving him a citation and impounding his car.
The things that you mention can be important in defending your son's case. However, they are not a "silver bullet"...
