John Mark Sutton received training on how fatigue can affect DUI charges, offered by the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys. In some cases, people are wrongfully accused of driving under the influence because they appear to be intoxicated but are actually tired. The purpose of the training was to educate lawyers on this possibility, so they can properly evaluate DUI cases and build successful strategies.
Probable cause is enough grounds for a DUI arrest in many cases, and a combination of reckless driving and a drowsy suspect can lead police officers to believe the driver in question is intoxicated. This leaves many DUI cases up to the perception of the arresting officer, sometimes resulting in inaccurate accusations. In these cases, an educated attorney can use the suspect’s fatigued appearance in their defense.
Sutton is a member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, and took this training as an opportunity to expand his knowledge of DUI law. With DUI litigation experience dating back to 1996, Sutton is consistently looking for ways to broaden that experience. Sutton’s commitment to client advocacy motivates him to grow and learn the nuances of DUI cases and provide strategic, informed, personalized representation.
The American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys recruits the expertise of legal professionals to create comprehensive, educational resources for those in the industry. Lawyers who complete these trainings gain new skills, helping them give clients their best service.
