DUI and Crash Investigation

August 30, 2014

​State v. Muntifering, 21 Fla. L. Weekly Supp. 681a (Volusia Cty. Ct. 2014)The court granted the defendant’s motion to suppress results of a DUI investigation, finding that where an officer arrived at the scene of a single-car accident and saw the defendant seated at a nearby business that was closed, “the arresting officer did not have sufficient information regarding defendant being in actual physical control of the vehicle in order to conduct a DUI investigation.”

You should know: Another common mistake lawyers make is not contesting a license revocation hearing because they believe that these hearing cannot be won very frequently. A revocation is imposed in Florida for refusal to take a breath or blood test, or for failing it. The license revocation hearing supplies the attorney with valuable information about your pending criminal case as well. In Florida you have 10 days from the date of arrest to request the hearing, so, if you find yourself arrested for DUI give me a call.
