DUI with Property Damage Charges Reduced

In a recent case, our legal team at Thomas & Paulk represented a client who was criminally charged for a DUI with property damage after being involved in a crash with two marked Hillsborough County Sheriff's patrol cars. Our client suffered injuries from the accident and was immediately taken to a local hospital for medical treatment; the Deputies, however, claimed that before the transportation that they smelled alcohol. They therefore investigated further and requesting to draw blood while our client was in the hospital.

One month later, the results came back – showing that our client had 0.174 percent blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the incident. Our client was thus criminally charged and we became involved. During our case review, we discovered that the charging document had been improperly completed. With this fault in mind, we set the case to move forward into a jury trial; however, we never reached that point. During the pre-trial, we were successful in getting the charges reduced to a simple reckless driving.

Many times people choose not to fight a DUI simply because they believe that there is no chance they can overcome the negative facts in their case. Many times, however, problems can arise that have very little or nothing to do with the facts of the case. The State has a burden to charge cases properly and if mistakes are made in that process, it can help resolve your case in a way you never thought possible. It is always in your best interest to speak with an attorney about your case regardless of the facts. Many times an experienced attorney can detect problems with a case that can result in a favorable outcome.
