Illegal Drug DUI in Tampa, Florida

Being pulled over under suspicion of being under the influence of drugs can get you charged if an officer finds narcotics on your person or you fail field sobriety tests. In many cases, police officers can charge people with DUI and drugs even when they are only in possession of prescription drugs. This is because some prescription drugs can cause impairment that affects driving. If you are pulled over under suspicion of DUI and an officer finds illegal narcotics on your person or in your vehicle then you may be charged with both DUI and possession.

Key factors considered when proving guilt in a DUID case include:

  • Results of blood and / or urine test.
    • Were there drugs present?
    • What was the amount of drugs?
  • Results of field sobriety tests.
    • Were the driver's abilities impaired?

Defense Against Tampa DUID Cases

It is important to know that you can still get a defense even though you were found to have narcotics on your person or in your system. Many times, police officers gain their evidence illegally. Illegal obtainment can be constituted by searching a vehicle or your person without adequate evidence, not informing you of your rights and even faulty blood tests. These are all things that a skilled Tampa DUI attorney can use as ammunition in your favor. If you want to avoid your illegal drug DUI charges then you need to get in touch with a skilled lawyer as soon as possible.

It may seem as if you don't have many options from here, but actually, you can still get defense that can lessen or even dismiss your charges. You want to avoid a DUI conviction at all costs, because depending on the circumstances surrounding your particular arrest, you could face serious punishments such as jail time.
