Reno BUI Lawyer

Charged with BUI in Reno?

While boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol may not be quite as common around Reno as DUI charges in the case of cars, truck and motorcycles, they do occur. Against the better judgment of some boaters, operating a boat under the influence may seem not as dangerous as drunk driving. Rest assured, however, BUI’s do have serious consequences. Prosecutions for impaired boating, while rare, are not unheard of, especially where large bodies of water draw people for fun in the sun. There are differences between the burdens of proof to be considered by the court and seemingly irrelevant facts may have a significant impact on the outcome. This is where a professional, creative defense may make the difference between freedom and incarceration. While a BUI may be a misdemeanor if there are no injuries or casualties, the penalties can get very serious if there are injuries or deaths resulting from an accident where the operator of the boat was under the influence. In these cases, long prison sentences can be imposed by the courts

Defending BUI Charges

The laws referring to BUI are very similar to DUI, most importantly in the way field sobriety tests are carried out, and how the police make their identifications. In scenarios where you may be accused of BUI, it is important to remember the many different opportunities to cast doubt in court. Many successful defenses of BUI include accusations of defective testing equipment, denial of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and even denial of being under the influence in the first place to name just a few.

Walter Fey understands the subtle circumstantial factors in a boating under the influence charge that can be the difference between an inconvenient court appearance, and a long prison sentence that could destroy your life. He has been protecting those in need of a strong BUI defense for many years, and will continue to work hard to represent their best interests.
