"Not only are driving under the influence arrests more plentiful, they are becoming more difficult to effectively defend."

Not only are driving under the influence arrests more plentiful, they are becoming more difficult to effectively defend.  Within the last few years, many of the once famous "loopholes" have been tightened in an effort to successfully prosecute DUI suspects.  Rhode Island's Pimental case stands for the proposition that sobriety checkpoints are violative of the Rhode Island Constitution; however, even well established case law such as this will likely change in the years to come.  With a legislature that is more and more educated about drunk driving statistics and a Supreme Court that is generally more conservative in composition than those of the past, DUI laws will inevitably evolve to obviate legal arguments that once existed.  As this happens, Rhode Island Criminal Defense Lawyers will need to become more vigilant about analyzing current laws, regulations and cases that impact the legal and constitutional rights of their clients.
