April 2013 – No enhancement despite .194 BAC

Tampa DUI lawyer helps client avoid ignition interlock for enhanced DUI arrest.

If your BAC was over .15, you may be required to get an ignition interlock device installed in your car. Talk to a Tampa DUI lawyer today to see if you can avoid the interlock requirements.

DUI defense: Client appeared very intoxicated, and the breath alcohol levels on the Intoxilyzer 8000 were .190 and .194. Client’s case was assigned to one of the toughest judges in Hillsborough county, so he was facing a significant jail sentence if he went to trial and was found guilty of DUI.

Results: Client’s realistic goal was to get the case reduced from an “enhanced” DUI so that he would avoid the $2000.00 fine and the ignition interlock device.  We were able to accomplish the goal through extensive pre-trial negotiations with the prosecutor’s office. We were able to get the client a series of work permits so that he was able to keep his job.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: Even if you think your case is “terrible,” hiring an experienced Tampa DUI attorney is worthwhile.

No DUI arrest is perfect, and every Tampa DUI has potential defenses. Some may be stronger than others, but every case has issues that can be attacked and may lead to a better resolution. Every case is different, so you should speak with an experienced Tampa DUI attorney who has the knowledge and is willing to invest the time preparing the case to see if there are any chances of avoiding jail or 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.
