DUI "Other" and the Drug Whisperers - Arresting the Innocent

A news story out of Cobb County, Georgia details how a particular DUI enforcement officer there has used his training as a "Drug Recognition Expert" to arrest people who had committed no crime at all. He looks for certain "clues" that convince him a person is under the influence of a drug while driving, and then arrests them, even when they appear sober and in fact are later proven to have no drugs in their system: http://www.wltx.com/mb/news/the-drug-whisperer-drivers-arrested-while-stone-cold-sober/439081096. The domino effect of such an arrest can be devastating, leading to lost jobs and more.

This same training is being given to Mississippi law enforcement officers and used against drivers who are suspected of driving under the influence. It represents the newest front in the battle of America's criminal defense lawyers against junk science that has ruined so many lives in the past. If you have been charged with DUI in Mississippi, contact an experienced DUI lawyer as soon as possible to make sure your rights and your future are protected.
