Defenses for DUI Charges
A DUI defense attorney from our Florida law firm can devise possible defenses to help our clients to get reduced or dropped charges. Some of these defenses can include:
- No probable cause: Police can only legally detain and arrest for DUI when there is probable cause. If someone’s fourth amendment rights are violated, the charge must be dropped.
- Breathalyzer Malfunction/Error: Electromagnetic interference, equipment malfunction or user misuse can all lead to false positives.
- Defendant wasn’t driving or didn’t intend to drive: This can mean they were sitting or even sleeping in the car (not the front seat) and had no intention to drive.
