General Information about a Pasco DUI Charge
Arrested for a Pasco County DUI?
Then you need to talk with a Pasco DUI Attorney who is experienced and knows about Pasco DUI.
** You have only 10 days from the date of arrest to request a formal review hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles to contest your immediate license suspension and attempt to get your license back. **
There are substantial rules and regulations which govern breath test machines, their maintenance, and the certification of the operator. Most agencies in the Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Tampa Bay area including Pinellas County, Hillsborough County, Pasco County of Florida area are now using the Intoxilyzer 8000 breath machine from CMI. Failure to comply with any of these regulations, could result in the breath test reading not being allowed in court. Whether you have taken a breath test or declined to take a breath test, you may still be able to retain your driving privilege.
Can blood be drawn instead of, or even in addition to, a breath test? When is it not an option? Blood withdrawals are an area of the law which is constantly evolving. In your case, did the implied consent law apply or did it not? Can law enforcement force a blood withdrawal? Can they get your hospital records? These are all issues which we can talk with you about. Quite often the blood draw is the critical piece of evidence in the state’s case. You should make sure you have an attorney who is very familiar with the issues surrounding blood draws.
