I failed the field sobriety tests, Iím automatically guilty right?
Absolutely NOT! Standardized Field Sobriety Tests were brought about to help police officers to have a uniform and objective way to determine whether a particular person is under the influence of alcohol or impaired to such a degree that the safe operation of a motor vehicle is not possible.
The problem with these tests is that when they were developed, the data and the subjects were tampered with. In addition, most Alabama DUI arrest police officers, do not administer the tests properly in the standardized manner as they were taught. As a result, the Alabama Field Sobriety tests results in most DUI laws cases are not reliable as indicators of intoxication or of impairment.
I refused to take the Draeger Breath Test, will I lose my driverís license?
Yes. In Alabama, there are 2 ways that you can lose your privilege to drive as it relates to an Alabama DUI charge or Auburn conviction. The first is administratively is you submit to the Alabama Draeger Breath Test and the result is 0.08g/210L or greater or if you refuse to submit to the test. The other way is due to a conviction.
I have a CDL, how will that affect my case?
Most participants in the traffic and criminal justice system in Alabama have been misinformed as to the affect having a CDL has on a DUI or traffic violation. Many practitioners think that if you have a CDL that a case cannot be dismissed or plea bargained because doing so would be in violation or state and Federal Law. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, the Federal Law prevents the masking of a conviction but reducing a charge, amending a charge, or dismissing a charge is not considered masking. Masking is what occurs when you enter a guilty plea to an offense and then, prior to the offense being reported to the state or federal government, the conviction is covered up. The State statute on point only prohibits a CDL holder from entering a pre-trial deferred adjudication program and does not prevent reduction of a charge, amending a charge, or an outright dismissal.
