DUI tests are used in Florida to determine the blood alcohol content of a driver. You can be arrested if your BAC is over 0.08% or if the police officer thinks your normal faculties are impaired by drugs or alcohol.
The burden of Proof Lies on the Prosecutors
Prosecutors must prove that the accused is guilty of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol beyond a reasonable doubt. Most DUI cases in Florida hinge on breath, blood, and chemical tests. You won’t get convicted of a DUI if the prosecutor fails to prove the testing was accurate. The burden of proof is high in criminal cases, and you will be surprised at how often our defense lawyers can successfully show the failure of test results.
