A DUI is not a mere traffic ticket, but rather a serious offense that can have lifelong effects on your future employment or education goals. A conviction for DUI can have devastating effects on your insurance and privilege to drive. Remember, an arrest for DUI in no way amounts to a conviction. The Florida State Attorney’s office is charged with the great burden of proving the allegations beyond and to the exclusion of any and all doubt. Our lawyers have been attacking mistakes made by police officers in DUI arrests for over 16 years and posts successful cases on the internet every few months so that they may be reviewed by potential clients.
Mistakes made by police officers during the investigative process of a DUI can be devastating to the prosecutor’s case in chief. Most often this is the result of an illegal stop of an individual’s automobile, excessive force, and/or the length of and reason for a stop. It is important to remember that a police officer must have probable cause before an arrest is made and that failure to follow strict guidelines leading up to and following that arrest may result in an outright dismissal of your case.
A failure to give Miranda warnings as well as implied consent warnings may also seriously damage a case pending against a DUI defendant. Sobriety checkpoints have been a big topic of debate, and the strict guidelines imposed on law enforcement to conduct such roadblocks are so stringent that very few DUI convictions are obtained as a result. The law offices of William Moore Criminal Defense has challenged such unlawful infringements on motorists for years with great success. We will vigorously fight for your rights and seek to protect not only your liberty but also your privilege to drive an automobile.
