ARREST V. CONVICTION: POLICE ONLY HAVE SO MUCH POWER

CASES OF NOTE - MISSOURI V. MCNEELY - 11-1425 - PART I:
Supreme Court to Rule on Warrantless Blood Draws in DUI Cases

The front of the United States Supreme Court Soon the United States Supreme Court will rule on Missouri v. McNeely, a case which will decide if warrantless blood draws for drivers suspected of DUI are constitutional. Extensive analysis is already available, so we'll stick to parsing out the precedent and applying it to the facts of the case. more

A Lake City DUI is Serious and May Include Serious Jail Time:

Even for a 1st DUI, you can be fined up to $1000.00 plus up to 40% tacked on as court costs and can spend up to 12 months in jail, 40 hours community service, drug and alcohol testing for one year and 12 months of reporting probation. Your license can be suspended anywhere from 120 days to 5 years. Do not try to handle your DUI alone.

Advice as to who you decide to hire as your DUI lawyer: 1) Don’t hire a DUI lawyer based solely on price. Sometimes the cheapest lawyer--especially if they plea you to a DUI you don't deserve at the first opportunity--can be the most expensive. Cost per hour is the best way to compare lawyers. If a lawyer charges $1000, but only spends an hour on your case, that's $1000 dollars an hour! We, unlike bargain basement firms, spend an average of 10 hours on every DUI case 2) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has tried any DUI jury trials and how many not guilty verdicts he/she has received in the past 2 years; 3) Ask any attorney that you speak with whether he/she has studied police field sobriety training manuals and breath test machine, owner's and area supervisor's manuals. If not, they cannot adequately cross examine DUI police officers or breath test operators. A DUI lawyer who can't answer these questions is not ready for a real DUI jury trial and is not worth your time and money.
