What is the presumption of innocence?


Under the Constitution, you are presumed to be innocent.  This means that you did not commit the crime unless and until the government proves otherwise beyond any reasonable doubt.  The presumption of innocence applies in a DUI case in Southeastern Connecticut, just like it applies in any other criminal case.  Even when you believe you have no chance to win your case, don't despair.  The presumption of innocence is a very power tool.  It is your single most important right when you are charged with a DUI.

If you or anyone you know is charged with DUI in Southeastern, Connecticut, contact the Eastern Connecticut drunk driving defense lawyers at The Bartinik Law Firm, PC., 100 Fort Hill Road, Groton, CT. at 860-445-8521 or toll free at 888-717-4211.
