A few weeks ago, Tilden Law was contacted by a client who had been arrested in Orlando on a DUI charge that resulted in her driver license being suspended for refusing to take the breath test. According to the police report, our client was accused of weaving within her own lane of travel and with having a tail light out. Once stopped by police, the officer noted a smell of alcohol and requested she participate in Field Sobriety Exercises. As a result of her performance, the officer arrested and charged our client with DUI. At the breath testing facility, our client refused to provide a breath sample after being read implied consent. The result of her refusal was a one (1) year driver license suspension.
Attorney, N. Fleetwood Tilden, filed for a Formal Review Hearing on behalf of our client to challenge the suspension of her license. At the hearing, Mr. Tilden cross examined the arresting officer and determined that several errors were made in both the preparation and filing of the documents by the officer. Mr. Tilden motioned the hearing officer to invalidate the suspension of our client’s driver license which was granted. As a result, our client now has her full driver license reinstated without cost or penalty.
