Tampa DUI lawyer helps client avoid DUI after refusing to perform field sobriety exercises or breath test.

Quick summary of the Tampa DUI case: Client was arrested for a DUI charge after she was seen driving too fast and allegedly tailgating behind a taxi. Client agreed to perform the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test (HGN) but wasn’t sure if she should do any other FSE’s, so she declined to perform them.

DUI defense: The video in this case looked pretty good, but the prosecutor was hung up on the client’s refusal to perform the FSE’s. After extensive negotiations, the prosecutor agreed to reduce the charge.

Results: Client avoided a DUI conviction and the case was reduced to Reckless Driving.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: If you’ve been charged with a DUI and refused to perform some or all of the field sobriety exercises, you may have a strong defense to your case. 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.
