Lewisville Boating While Intoxicated Attorneys
Though it is legally permissible to have open containers aboard your boat, the operator of the vessel is expected to maintain a legal blood alcohol content (BAC), just as they are while driving any other motor vehicle. With that in mind, Lewisville prosecutors will aggressively pursue boating while intoxicated charges against you if you are found to have a BAC that is above the legal limit.
As the Lewisville boating while intoxicated attorneys at Alexander & Associates know, the charges that have been filed against you may seem frightening. However, it is critical to remember that you have not been convicted of anything yet and, if we represent you, we will do everything we can to keep it that way.
Defending Against Boating While Intoxicated Charges
By virtue of operating a vessel on one of the state’s lakes or waterways, you are providing implicit consent to any law enforcement official to board and search your boat. With that in mind, Lewisville law enforcement officials look for a few signs they believe to be tell-tale signs of intoxication, including:
- Unlit safety equipment while operating the boat at nighttime
- Irregular or sharp turning of the boat
Our Lewisville legal team may work with you to develop a legal strategy intended to help you reduce or, ideally, altogether eliminate the charges against you. We believe that your future should not be decided by one mistake, and you should not have to fight these accusations on your own.
