Tampa DUI lawyer gets charges reduced in t-bone accident

Tampa DUI lawyer Elliott Wilcox got charges reduced in this “t-bone” accident with high breath levels

Quick summary of the Tampa DUI case: Client was arrested for her second DUI offense after leaving a bar and “t-boning” another car after running a red light. Fortunately, no one was injured and the only damage was to the cars. She agreed to take a breath test and the results were more than double the legal limit.

DUI defense: Through negotiations, we were able to get the charges reduced. Since this was a 2nd DUI and it involved a serious crash, there was a VERY serious risk of jail. Fortunately, we were successful with negotiations, so the jail sentence went away, and so did the enhanced fines and longer ignition interlock requirement.

Results: Client avoided jail (which was a serious risk in this case) and the charge was reduced from an Enhanced DUI to a DUI below .15 BAC.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: If you’ve been charged with a repeat DUI and it involves an accident, you can expect that the prosecutors will be seeking jail time. From their perspective, they think you’re a serious risk, and they want you off the streets. Fortunately, not only can we fight these charges, but we can also put a human face on the events, so that the DUI prosecutor backs off their “call for blood” and treats you more reasonably. If this is a 2nd DUI arrest or involves a DUI crash, you need to contact a DUI attorney ASAP. This is a 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.

NEXT STEP: Speak with a DUI Lawyer Today

If you’ve been 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 lawyer as soon as possible. Many of the issues in DUI cases are very time sensitive. DUI cases are serious, with harsher penalties than many felony cases, and the “hidden cost” of DUI insurance that can easily climb past $25,000! (Good news: You can avoid almost all of that if your DUI lawyer gets the DUI dropped or gets the charge reduced!)
