Even though police officers receive special training to conduct DUI investigations, they sometimes make critical mistakes that can result in the suppression of evidence being used against you. Police officers are required to follow strict protocols during a DUI investigation. If an officer broke protocol during the investigation or during the arrest, your case might be dismissed outright or you could have the opportunity to plead to a lesser offense.
If you've been arrested for a DUI in Florida, you should find a lawyer as soon as possible. You only have ten days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing with the DMV to challenge the suspension of your driver's license. This "administrative suspension hearing" is a completely separate matter from your criminal DUI case.
