Challenging Evidence in Gainesville DUI Case
Aggressive Defense for Your DUI in Gainesville, FL
If you have been charged with DUI, you probably took a breathalyzer test that showed your blood alcohol level to be at 0.08% or higher at the time of your arrest. You may believe that this is irrefutable evidence against you, but that is not necessarily the case.

Gainesville Challenging DUI Evidence: Aggressive Advocates
There are many ways that DUI evidence can be challenged. Evidence that was illegally obtained or handled incorrectly can be suppressed, or ruled inadmissible. Grounds for suppression include: no probable cause for the police officer to stop you; insufficient reasonable suspicion of intoxication; improperly conducted field sobriety test; failure to read the Miranda warning; and any violation of the strict standards for administering chemical testing of blood alcohol content.
Breathalyzer tests can be unreliable. The officer might have neglected to change the mouthpiece, and you could have used the same mouthpiece as the person before you. Any number of factors, such smoking a cigarette or recent dental work, could cause an inaccurate reading. If you were given a blood test, the technician who drew your blood might have failed to preserve it properly. There could be flaws in the chain of custody of your sample. Any violation in the strict standards for chemical testing will be challenged by a seasoned Gainesville DUI lawyer with our firm. Do not give up hope.
