Tampa DUI lawyer helps client reduce DUI after driving over road flares and blowing more than TWICE the legal limit.

Quick summary of the Tampa DUI case: Client drove through road flares and a closed-off section of roadway. Police were already on scene with their emergency lights activated, so when he drove over the flares, they stopped him only 20 yards away from their police cars. He agreed to take a breath test, and the results were .186/.189

DUI defense: After examining the case for potential jury appeal and the possibility of successful motions to suppress, it became obvious that this was a case where the best result for the case would only be obtained through successful negotiations. By showing the prosecutor some potential issues in the case (even though those issues probably would not lead to any type of dismissal or reduction on their own), they agreed to reduce the charge from an enhanced DUI to a DUI below .15.

Results: Client avoided an enhanced DUI conviction, avoiding the $2000 maximum fine and the 6 month ignition interlock requirement.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: No matter how high the BAC in your case, there is always a potential chance to get the charge reduced from an enhanced DUI using negotiation and outlining the potential issues with the breath test. If your BAC is 2x or 3x the legal limit, you’re facing a very serious charge and you need the best Tampa DUI lawyer you can find to help. 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.
