It’s easy to think of a DUI as another type of traffic ticket, but the State of Florida considers it a grave criminal offense.
One issue that is often important to discuss with a DUI lawyer is the issue of implied consent, as discussed in the testing provisions of the State Uniform Traffic Control statutes (“Tests for alcohol, chemical substances, or controlled substances; implied consent; refusal”: Title XXIII, Chapter 316.1932). The implied consent laws require people to take tests to gauge blood-alcohol level (BAL). If you don’t agree to take a breath test, that evidence can be submitted by the prosecution during your court case.
It’s wise to contact a DUI attorney / DWI attorney immediately if you are charged with this crime. With as much time as possible, the attorney can best defend you using their granular knowledge of the above testing provisions, along with other major laws such as the description of the crime and delineation of penalties (“Driving under the influence; penalties”: Title XXIII, Chapter 316.193), rules for commercial vehicle operators (“Driving under the influence; commercial motor vehicle operators”: Title XXIII, Chapter 322.62), and the reckless driving provisions (“Reckless driving”: Title XXIII, Chapter 316.192).
Although it’s common for someone charged with a crime to feel vulnerable and unsure, DUI lawyer Arthur C. Fulmer, Jr., can create a solid defense with evidence such as:
- Faulty equipment for testing BAL
- Testing designed incompetently
- Lack of officer experience
- Mistakes made during the arrest
