DUI Defined Adam D. Stolte is Ready for Trial

DUI Defined

The Kansas legislature ahs prescribed the offense of driving under the influence in Kansas Statute 8-1567(a). The statute is wholly contained. This means the statute details the entirety of the crime including the arrest to the prosecution and terms of sentencing.

Elements of a Kansas DUI

K.S.A. 8-1567. Driving under the influence.

(a). Driving under the influence is operating or attempting to operate any vehicle within this state while:

(1) The alcohol concentration in the person's blood or breath … is .08 or more;

(2) the alcohol concentration in the person's blood or breath, as measured within three hours of the time of operating or attempting to operate a vehicle, is .08 or more;

(3) under the influence of alcohol to a degree that renders the person incapable of safely driving a vehicle;

(4) under the influence of any drug or combination of drugs to a degree that renders the person incapable of safely driving a vehicle; or

(5) under the influence of a combination of alcohol and any drug or drugs to a degree that renders the person incapable of safely driving a vehicle.

Elements in Plain English

Put simply, the prosecutor essentially only need to prove that (1) a person was driving while (2) under the influence of alcohol or drugs. While this may seem straightforward, a knowledgeable defense attorney can, and should, challenge every piece of evidence to make a guilty verdict difficult or impossible.

The Elements Defined

In every Kansas DUI, the government must prove every element of a DUI as prescribed in K.S.A. 8-1567. While terms like "vehicle" may have ordinary meanings, the terms also have legal requirements that must be met. If those legal requirements are not met, you are not guilty.
