Breathalyzers & Field Sobriety Tests
If you are pulled over in Missouri for suspected drunk driving, one of the first things that the police officer is likely to ask is for you to exit the vehicle and perform a field sobriety and blow into a breathalyzer device. While you do need to exit the vehicle, it’s important to keep in mind that you do not legally have to submit to a breathalyzer or field sobriety test, and have the right to remain silent and request an attorney. Denying the tests can result in a longer suspension of an individual’s driver’s license, but can make it easier for your charges to be brought down by an attorney since the officer will have less evidence to support a drunk driving case against you.
A History of Successful Drunk Driving Defense
A first drunk driving conviction usually comes as a shock. When you face a felony DWI charge, which can result from two prior DUI convictions or two prior alcohol-related offenses, it can feel like your life as you know it is over.
We can help. It is true that a first DUI conviction can lead to jail time, a criminal record, fines, and the loss of your driver’s license, and multiple offenses can greatly increase penalties. Often, though, an experienced criminal defense attorney can effectively fight to have your charges reduced or dismissed.
