March 2013 – No DUI for driver with .133 / .127 BAC results

Tampa DUI lawyer Elliott Wilcox helps client avoid DUI who struck curb and had high BAC results

No DUI arrest is perfect. Make sure you check every issue in the case before accepting ANY type of plea offer.

Quick summary of the Tampa DUI case: Client was visiting from Orlando and went out in the Howard bar area. He was driving back to Orlando when he struck a curb and was stopped by Tampa PD. He agreed to take a breath test, with Intoxilyzer 8000 results of .133 and .127.

DUI defense: I prepared motions to suppress that the stop was improper and that there were problems with the DUI investigation. Before arguing the motions, I was able to get the charge reduced from a DUI to a “Reckless Driving” offense.

Results: Client avoided a DUI conviction and a 6 month license suspension.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: If you were visiting Tampa and got stopped because you weren’t familiar with the area, there may be issues with the basis for the stop that allow you to have some or all of your evidence suppressed, and that may allow me to convince the prosecutor that you shouldn’t be convicted of a DUI. Every case is different, so it’s important to find an experienced Tampa DUI attorney who has the knowledge and is willing to invest the time preparing the case if you want to improve your chances of getting your license back and avoiding a DUI conviction.

If you were arrested for DUI, no matter how bad the case looks, don’t ever plead guilty without first talking to a Tampa DUI lawyer. There may even be a way that can get your charges dismissed, but you’ll never know unless you fight your charges by talking to a Tampa DUI attorney.
