Do Police Officers Lie In DUI Cases?

I believe in general that officers are honest individuals.  As an attorney handling many DUI cases and criminal cases for over 18 years in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, it is my belief that very few officers go into their line of profession because they are liars.  That said, many find ways to embellish the case to best aid in obtaining a conviction.  There are many reasons that may occur, including awards and conviction rations that can affect pay, bonuses and special accommodations. Consider this recent question that a reader asked: I refused any further field sobriety tests after failing an alphabet test, and after consulting a lawyer refused the breathalyzer.  I ended up taking it to trial and was found guilty.  What irks me to this day is that the officer lied and embellished the majority of events that happened that night.  It was clear to me during the trial that these guys are coached to use certain key words and explain things in a certain way to get a conviction, to the point that some of what he said didn't even match the video!  . . .  Unfortunately this is not rare.  Fortunately, an attorney may be able to find holes or point out inconsistencies in the officer's testimony.  Further, most juries and judges trust the video over the testimony which may be contradictory.  Your best bet is to hire a competent criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.  If you have questions or need a consultation in Northern Kentucky, contact Michael Bouldin at mwbouldin@fuse.net or call 859-581-6453. 581-MIKE.
