In Florida, the State can prove intoxication by demonstrating the loss of normal use of mental and/or physical faculties due to the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, or a combination of those substances and/or by having a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or greater. An experienced DUI attorney will be able to determine if the police officer had reasonable suspicion to pull you over and whether the officer correctly administered the field sobriety tests. Also, if you provided samples of your breath, there may be ways to contest the accuracy of those results.
In certain situations, your license could be suspended for up to two years for refusing to submit a sample of your breath. In addition to suspension sanctions, a second refusal is a misdemeanor criminal offense.
