Blowing over 0.08 doesn’t mean you can’t fight a DUI charge

Being accused of DUI can be incredibly intimidating. All sorts of fears regarding their future can come up for a person when facing such allegations. When faced with such a daunting situation, among the worries a person might have is that they might be a lock for being convicted.

When a person is facing DUI charges in Florida, it can be very important for them to have an accurate understanding of what options they have available, given their circumstances, for fighting the charges. Just assuming that they have no realistic routes for fighting the charges could lead to a person accepting a plea deal when doing so might not be in their best interests and when other options may be available. Skilled attorneys can provide individuals accused of DUI with explanations of what particular options they have related to fighting the charges brought against them.

One situation in which a person accused of DUI might fear that the case against them is open and shut is when they blew 0.08 or higher on a breath test.

It is true that breath test evidence can have big impacts in DUI cases. However, there can be ways to challenge a breath test’s results. For example, in some instances, there may be details or evidence that call into question whether the test was administered properly, whether the testing device functioned the way it was supposed to or whether the results accurately reflect how much alcohol was actually in the person’s system.

So, even when a person has blown 0.08 or over, there can still be options for fighting the charges. As this discussion underscores, the particular circumstances in a given DUI case can heavily impact what sorts of options are available to a defendant.
