Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The burden is on the State to prove the charge against you beyond a reasonable doubt. To do this, one of the elements which they must prove to succeed on a DUI charge is proving you were in actual or physical control of the truck. This is going to be hard to do, when the officer shows up after the fact and did not witness you driving. Moreover, the State would then need to subpoena the two other guys and have them testify under oath, that you were the driver and there friend was never behind the wheel. I am inclined to believe that they would not want to cooperate or appear, since they would have to lie under oath and your attorney could depose them, to try and obtain the name of the friend who crashed the truck and stole your laptop. In addition, you can take the stand and testify that you were not driving and the facts of the case. It is a case that will likely need to go to trial
unless the State realizes they do not have enough evidence to proceed in good faith.
