April 2013 – DUI reduced for .190/.199 BAC results on 3rd DUI arrest

Tampa DUI lawyer helps client avoid jail on his third DUI arrest.

If this is your 2nd or 3rd Tampa DUI arrest, you may be facing jail time. Talk to a Tampa DUI lawyer today for help.

Quick summary of the Tampa DUI case: Client was stopped for weaving back and forth on I-75. He had problems with the HGN exercise and refused to do any other field sobriety exercises, but agreed to take the breath test, with results of .190 and .199. This was his third DUI arrest, which made things more difficult to work with, because normally, the prosecutors will seek jail on a 3rd DUI offense.

DUI defense: I prepared motions to suppress and was ready to argue the motions, but after receiving a no-jail offer and an agreement to remove the enhancement for a DUI over .15 BAC, client accepted the offer and we resolved the case.

Results: Case was reduced from an enhanced DUI to regular DUI, with no jail on his third DUI arrest.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: If you were arrested for a DUI with a high BAC (anything over .15 BAC is considered “enhanced” in Florida), you may think that you don’t have any defenses, especially if this is your second or third DUI arrest. But every case has 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.
