Successfully defending against a drunk driving charge is possible

The general perception about being accused of driving under the influence is that it is an easy matter for police and prosecutors to prove. After all, they have modern technology on their side, in the form of devices that can sample your breath or even your blood to determine to a fraction of a percent the amount of alcohol in your system. In addition to their technology police officers receive considerable training in identifying the characteristics of suspected drunk drivers.

Appealing a criminal conviction in the state of Florida

If you have been accused of a crime in Florida, your first line of defense – if the matter goes to trial, and you have pleaded not guilty – is to contest the charges in court.
