Can I still beat a DUI if I failed a roadside test?
Absolutely. Don't let the fact that you failed a field sobriety test or even a breath or blood test lead you into believing that you have no hope of avoiding a conviction for DUI. There are several potential weaknesses in the case. Were you the victim of an illegal traffic stop? Did the police officer have probable cause to investigate you? Did he or she make errors in administering the roadside tests? Was the breathalyzer machine properly maintained? Did it actually register residual alcohol in your mouth, rather than alcohol from your lungs?
What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?
It is basically a difference of the severity of the crime. Relatively minor offenses like shoplifting, simple drug possession, indecent exposure and battery are classified as misdemeanors. These crimes are punishable by no more than one year in county jail, in addition to fines, probation and possible terms such as anger management or substance abuse treatment programs. Felonies, on the other hand, carry minimum sentences of one year in state prison, and they can range up to life in prison. (Note: Until recently, California carried the death penalty, but the voters overturned this in the November 2012 elections.)
Can a driver's license be suspended if you refuse BAC tests?
In the state of California, if you failed to submit to a BAC test, you could lose your license. When you get your drivers license in California, part of the agreement is that if an officer has probable cause for a DUI test, you have to submit to it. If the police officer also wants you to submit to a blood test, you are required to provide that sample. You do, however, have the option to choose one or the other. Failure to not provide it will suspend your license for 1 year.
Should I accept a plea bargain?
The answer to this question depends on the exact circumstances of your unique case. In some scenarios, a plea bargain is the best possible outcome that can be hoped for, while in others it is better to turn down the D.A.'s offer in favor of pursuing a dismissal of the charges or a full acquittal. Even in cases where the best option is to accept a plea bargain, it is nearly always better to negotiate on the matter first, since the prosecutor's first offer is rarely the best one available. It is often possible, for example, to get some of the charges dropped in exchange for entering a guilty plea to one of them, to have the charge reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, or even to have the penalties reduced.
What Should I Do If Stopped For DUI?
Like any traffic stop, it is important to remain calm and cooperate with the officer. As we have explained in past videos, the most important thing to remember is that you can invoke your right to remain silent.
You will however be required to provide as sample if that is requested of you, be it a blood or breath test.
It is important to remember there is a difference between cooperating and proving a case against yourself.
Are DUI Testing Methods Accurate?
The prosecution of a DUI case is often built on a few core areas. One of those areas is the field sobriety test. Keep in mind that the officer stopping you is highly biased against you, and the likelihood is that their observations will not be as objective as they should be.
Additionally, the breath tests in the field often do not have the capability to determine whether or not the percentage measured is actually in your blood, or due to a high concentration of alcohol in your mouth or throat.
What are the Consequences of Being Charged With a Crime?
Many times good people are accused of a crime, and the thing they are most concerned with is not the punishment that accompanies a conviction, but how a conviction may impact other aspects of their life.
Until most people are accused of a crime they do not realize justice is a process not a result. When you focus on achieving a result over protecting the process you convict the innocent. You need protection in court and out of court. Protect your career, your licenses, and your livelihood.
