Challenging The Results Of Field Sobriety Tests
The performance of roadside field sobriety tests is strictly voluntary. Yet once you have performed them, they can be used as evidence against you in court. Getting the results of the tests suppressed can go a long way toward obtaining a positive outcome in a DUI trial.
My name is J.B. Katz, a criminal defense attorney with extensive experience in the defense of people accused of DUI, DWAI and other crimes. I aggressively defend my clients using every relevant fact and point of law.
Defending Your Rights And Freedom
You should know that just because you failed when you performed field sobriety tests, it does not mean that the outcome of your case is a foregone conclusion. DUI cases can be won, and I will use every means at my disposal to defend you.
I have successfully defended many clients against DUI charges in the courtroom, and I do not hesitate doing so when the state’s case has flaws. If I can’t persuade a prosecutor to drop a DUI charge, I will defend you at trial.
In our part of Colorado, police cars do not have dash cameras to record what happens at traffic stops. At trial, that means that evidence regarding the performance of field sobriety tests must come from the police officer.
Often, their memories can fail, and under my cross-examination, additional gaps and inconsistencies in their stories may become obvious. And when a jury hears that even sober people sometimes have trouble performing field sobriety tests, it can further weaken the state’s case.
I have represented people accused of DUI and other crimes for more than 20 years. I have received training in the administration of field sobriety tests and other drunk driving tests as a member of the National College for DUI Defense. I will defend you every step of the way.
