Former Florida forward Dan Werner was arrested and charged with DUI earlier this year. Reports indicate that he will be accepting a plea deal where he will serve one year of probation, pay a $500 fine, have his license suspended for six months, attend DUI school and do 50 community service hours.
If you have been arrested for DUI, you should contact an experienced Tampa
Criminal Defense lawyer at Taracks & Associates today. An experienced
lawyer will look for holes in the State's case against you and will
begin by trying to file motions to dismiss the case or motions to suppress
evidence in the case if at all possible. Additionally, an experienced
lawyer might be able to negotiate a deal where you plea to a lesser charge
of Reckless Driving for example. And, of course, there are always defenses
to the charge of DUI itself: for example, were you in actual, physical
control of an operable vehicle as required by statute?
It is important to realize that, although the evidence against you may
seem staggering, there are many legal hurdles that the State must pass
in order to prove the case against you "beyond a reasonable doubt."
Often times, it is in your best interest to fight these charges. Call
Taracks & Associates for a free consultation today at 813-281-2897.
One of our lawyers will walk you through the
step-by-step and will point out any possible motions/defenses you may have.
