TODD K. MOHINK, PA Glen Burnie & Columbia Family & Criminal Lawyer

Can you challenge field sobriety tests successfully?

An arrest for driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated is not the same as a conviction. It simply means the officer believes he or she had enough evidence of a DUI or DWI to charge with the offense.

Before you are arrested, you will likely be asked to take field sobriety tests. These tests are often given to suspected drunk drivers in poor conditions, such as on a hill, on a gravel shoulder or in the rain. At the Law Offices of Todd K. Mohink, PA, we investigate the circumstances surrounding the field sobriety tests in order to find out if they were done properly. Did the officer ask you if you had any physical disabilities that might prevent you from completing the test?

Should we believe that the results of the field sobriety tests should not be admissible, then we will ask that the court suppress the results. Challenging the results of field sobriety tests is possible and it is something that we will be happy to discuss with you.

When facing a DUI or DWI charge, it’s important to understand all of the possible penalties that such a charge carries. From possible jail time to a suspended driver’s license to hefty fines, this is a conviction that will be on your driving record permanently. It can affect your employment, your relationships with your family and friends and cost you a lot of money in higher insurance costs.

At the Law Offices of Todd K. Mohink, PA, we offer free consultations so we can discuss the details of your case. To learn more about DUIs, DWIs and possible defenses, please visit our webpage on the topic.
