Fighting DUI Charges in Florida
In Florida, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The prosecution will use the police report, the arresting officer's testimony, and the results of any chemical tests to build their case against you. You can challenge the police report and the testimony of the arresting officer. You can challenge the results of the chemical test if you have a valid medical condition that prevents your body from breaking down or absorbing alcohol.
Our Orlando DUI lawyer can challenge the testimony of the arresting officer. The officer may have made mistakes in the way the arrest was conducted. The officer may have misunderstood your behavior during the traffic stop. The officer may have failed to follow the proper procedures when administering a chemical test.
Our attorney can challenge the results of the chemical test if you have a medical condition that prevents your body from absorbing or breaking down alcohol. For example, if you have a genetic condition called lactic acidosis, your body cannot properly break down alcohol. As a result, your BAC may appear to be higher than it actually is.
