Some people end up getting picked up for a DUI and not realizing exactly how serious the charges they are facing are. Drunk driving charges are brought readily by law enforcement and, in many cases, people end up being punished for a DUI when the way that they were arrested or tested for being under the influence may make it possible to get the charges dropped.

Whether you were arrested in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Polk or Lake County, the arresting officers are required to follow specific procedures to determine that you were driving under the influence and to document that fact. Quite often, a good DUI defense attorney can find problems with your arrest that may allow you to avoid facing the worst of the charges.

Officers, for example, may have:

  • Failed to properly administer roadside tests;
  • Failed to properly administer a Breathalyzer or blood test;
  • Pulled over the vehicle without any probable cause;
  • Failed to properly inform the suspect of their rights;
  • Searched the vehicle without probable cause.

Many people who get charged with DUI offenses have no other criminal history and may have never dealt with law enforcement before. They may have, without realizing it, allowed law enforcement officers to violate their constitutional rights. A good criminal attorney in central Florida will be able to review the circumstances of the arrest, ensure that the arresting officers acted properly and, if they did not, will be able to act accordingly in their client’s defense.

If arrested for a DUI offense, you only have 10 days from the date of the DUI arrest to request an administrative hearing with the department of motor vehicles. At this point you may request to be granted hardship driving privileges while you are involved in the legal process of defending yourself against DUI charges.

When arrested for a DUI crime or other criminal charges, you have rights that must be protected. You have the right to have competent legal counsel present your side of the events in question in an effort to prove your innocence. Your legal counsel may also negotiate on your behalf to have the charges dropped, reduced, to allow you to enter into a plea deal or diversion program when available, and to negotiate for probation instead of jail or prison time.

Protect your rights by seeking the legal advice and representation of an experienced Altamonte Springs and Orlando DUI Criminal Defense Attorney.
