Why am I being forced to plea to a DUI when I was not drunk nor under the influence of anything, yet arrested for it?
I was in 7-11 in the early morning hours while a sherrif was present. My boyfriend and I were arguing a little, but not being loud. When I left, I was driving and the same officer raced up behind me and immediately pulled me with flashing lights. When he approached, he first asked how much Ihad to drink. Since this is the first time I have ever been pulled over, I became very nervous and cried through out all the field tests. I was asked to later blow, I blew Zero-Zero. I was released without seeing a judge or posting bond. My public defender wants me to plea to a wreckless driving charge and go thru probation. I was not doing anything wrong and believe if I was suspect of being intoxcated, then I feel the cop ahould have prevented me from driving. There is no dash cam video avail
Nobody can force you into a plea. If you don't like your options look into hiring a private attorney. A zero zero...
If I ask for a reset if there a chance of my case getting kicked to criminal court instead of remaining in traffic court? And if it does would it matter in sentencing?
Don't just plea guilty. You may have defenses and need a DUI attorney. There are some really good ones in St. Pete/...

Dealing with two DMV's is a nightmare. Hire a lawyer in each state.
I just received my BAC results from a blood draw from July 25th this week. How would I go about requesting a outside lab confirm the sample results (or bad sample)? My results came back .155 which I was very surprised, I had 5 beers over a 4 hour period and every BAC calculator I ran the number through had me at .07 as the highest that night. If the outside lab results are lower (hopefully below the .150 enhanced threshold) or show the sample was contaminated I will need a DUI lawyer that has dealt with challenging the conflicting tests.
Out of curiosity, did you ask for the blood to be drawn or did they forcibly draw the blood after an accident?
Has any attorney in Pinellas County subpoenaed the video which is located at the 49 street jail's breathalyzer room?
the breathalyzer room is the building right next to the west side of the jail. I need an attorney.
I've never done it, but I can refer you to a Pinellas DUI lawyer if you give me a call. Best of luck.
If a police department fails to have video and blew all 0's on test. Do you feel a private attorney should file for dismissal?
Was driving 9:00AM in the morning. Coughed out with COPD and being a smoker loss sight for a second or so. Police arrest me for DUI. Bumped a rescue vehicle. Cops come and end up with a DUI. Blew all 0's on test. Asked to take a urine test and asked to speak with my lawyer about certain meds I take. They wrote a refusal. Got my license back. They now have no video. I know the officer said to use the field test because I did to good.
You need to talk to a lawyer about your discovery. Did you perform field sobriety exercises? Did the officers "switch...
I got a DWI in FL in Jan. 2009. Blew .155. Haven't driven at all since then. Do I still need to have a breathalizer for 6 mo?
Paid all required fines, completed probation, graduated DWI School. Because I blew a .15 (exact limit for breathalyzer on 1st DWI), I haven't driven a car since. I have breathing issues (COPD) and can't send enough "air" into the machine for it to work correctly. I do not own a car presently. I need to drive again, the bus system keeps me from working a job in my career path. Help?
Sounds like there are a couple of issues that need to be known before your question can be answered. First and foremost,...
