Expert WitnessThe following are types of evidence collected to prosecute the drunk driver in South Carolina:
- DWI / DUI Case Evidence
If it can be shown that all of the evidence collected against a suspect arrested for Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Impaired (DUI/DWI) was circumstantial, the judge may be required to give to a jury an instruction making that fact known. The courts give the same weight to circumstantial evidence as they do to direct evidence; however, it is known that jury members often give less weight in their minds when they hear the words “circumstantial evidence.”
This charge to the jury could be beneficial but will most often be impossible to meet as the arresting officer can provide direct evidence of any indications that he witnessed as to intoxication.
