Breath, Blood And Field Sobriety Tests
If you have been charged with a DUI/DUAC in South Carolina, it is absolutely critical to understand the workings and procedure behind the process.
For all intents and purposes, prior to an arrest, any field sobriety test to which you consent is absolutely voluntary. For anyone charged with a DUI, any information leading up to the arrest that is gained in the field should have been volunteered. By taking the Datamaster test in South Carolina, you are voluntarily demonstrating (assuming you are above a .08) that you are above the legal limit to drive.
That being said, there are still a number of ways to attack a prosecution's case in a DUI charge, including:
Were the full Miranda Rights read?
What can be understood on the sound on the video?
Were there any discrepancies in the information provided?
Did the officer undertake the field sobriety test in full compliance?
If there is absolutely any doubt in any of these questions, it is possible to work toward dismissal.

Our attorneys are ready to bring their aggressive advocacy to attack any weakness in the prosecution's case. From aspects including the three basic onsite tests (horizontal gaze, one-legged stand, walk and turn around) to Datamaster issues, there is no aspect of the process about which we do not have a comprehensive knowledge.
That said, it is critical to begin protecting your rights as soon as a charge develops. We look forward to hearing from you.
