The State of Florida is constantly changing and increasing the penalties for people who are convicted of a DUI in Naples and Fort Myers. Many people are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving for the second, third, and fourth time. These defendants pay even heavier consequences. A DUI can be devastating if you are convicted. Besides jail time, many people’s employment and driving privileges are affected.
There are many ways to defend a DUI charge. Mr. Moffitt can challenge the reason you were stopped. Sometimes people are pulled over unlawfully. If the police made an unlawful stop, your DUI charge can be dismissed. Did you make any statements to the police officer? There are times when the statements you make can be suppressed in a court of law. If you failed a breathalyzer test, can they be challenged? Mr. Moffitt will check the history of the Breathalyzer used at the time of your arrest for accuracy.
The State of Florida must prove that you were impaired, and also that you were impaired to the extent that it prevented you from safely driving a motor vehicle. The state will try to introduce evidence, many times from dash board cameras of your field sobriety test. These sometimes are the most contestable pieces of evidence.
