If you have been arrested for DUI it is crucial that you act quickly to preserve your right to drive, as well as to develop a defense for the DUI case against you. A DUI is a two part matter in Florida, and the outcome of both is equally important to your driving future. The first step is to seek review of the suspension of your driver’s license by asking for a review hearing. At this hearing you may hear things that are beneficial to the defense strategy you develop for the criminal DUI case.
The type of defense you assert will depend on the facts of your case, but the top five most popular DUI defenses include:
- Challenging the breath test results, which may include an attack on the testing process, or with the equipment itself.
- Seeking to have any statements you made excluded.
- Attempts to have any items seized during the stop excluded from the evidence.
- Challenging the initial stop as invalid.
- Misconduct by the arresting officer.
You can also look for holes in the prosecution’s case by pointing out errors in the way evidence was handled after being taken out of you possession.
