New York City DWI lawyer Russ Kofman releases a new article ( explaining the common mistakes a person makes after a DWI arrest. The lawyer mentions that it is important for a person to understand the breakdown of what happens when someone gets pulled over and arrested for a DWI. Oftentimes, people who are arrested would want to know how bad their case is and whether they may be able to receive some leniency from the prosecutor.

“Police officers are usually just looking for criminality; although, if they see a reason to pull you over on a Saturday or a Friday night where they suspect there are a lot of people on the road drinking and driving, then they can use any excuse to pull you over,” says the New York City DWI lawyer.

The lawyer explains that another mistake people usually make is giving statements to the police officers that could incriminate them. By instinct, some people would usually answer honestly if asked whether they’ve been drinking at a police stop. Generally, people are afraid to lie to a police officer but they must remember that admitting to consuming alcohol can make their case more complicated.

Attorney Russ Kofman says that another issue a person may face if they were pulled over is having to take a portable breath test or Alco-Sensor. It is a gadget that allows the person to blow into and will tell the officer whether or not there was the presence of alcohol on their breath. The officer would then have to wait 20 minutes before administering the test to ensure that there would be no false positives.

In the article, attorney Kofman adds, “The next issue is whether you had performed field sobriety tests when you were pulled over and how you did on those tests. The officer makes an IDTU video when they take you to the precinct, and how you looked on the video would be very important in regards to how your DWI case is evaluated and how it proceeds.”

Lastly, attorney Kofman emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when facing charges of DWI. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the defendant understand their rights and protect their freedom.
