Tulsa DUI Attorneys
“Got my DUI charge dropped!!! Very honest and experienced! Very easy to talk too! Saved my CDL license! Tulsa's #1 DUI Attorney, Truly the best!!!! P.C. 1/24/19
“This was my second DUI charge. I don’t believe I was impaired either time. The first time I paid a bundle and ended up having to do probation, classes, and have an interlock. This time I hired Boeheim Freeman Law and they fought the officer’s claim I was intoxicated and it ended up getting dismissed. They also fought the revocation of my license and won. The best part is they cost half of what I paid last time.” A.B. 10/15/19
Time is of the Essence
First and foremost, call us right away at 918-884-7791. Depending on your circumstance and your charges, you may have a specific time to respond. Whenever there is an arrest, time is of the essence. Anyone arrested has certain constitutional rights that attach at the time of arrest that need to be asserted right away to protect you, your friend, or family member. With a DUI there are four key issues that are effected by waiting;
If you have been falsely accused of drinking we need to have you take an EtG test as soon as possible,
you only have 15 days to challenge the suspension of your license,
early subpoenaing of dash cam video and chemical breath testing service logs makes for a quicker resolution,
depending on your immigration status receiving a reasonable bond from the state may make all the difference between sitting in jail or at home awaiting resolution of your case.
What is the One Leg Stand Test?
The one-leg stand test is one of three tests that comprise the standardized field sobriety test (SFST) that police often use to determine if a person is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
In the one-leg stand test, officers instruct the suspect to stand with one foot approximately six inches off the ground and count aloud by thousands (one-thousand-one, one thousand-two, etc.) until told to put the foot down (which should happen after 30 seconds).
What is the Officer Looking For?
During the administration of the test the officer will be looking for a number of clues that indicate a blood alcohol content above the legal limit. These include:
Difficulty balancing while listening to instructions,
Starting the test before the instruction stage is complete,
Setting your foot down before instructed to do so,
Using arms for balance,
Hopping to try to maintain balance,
How accurate is the One Leg Stand Test?
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), studies have revealed the one-leg stand test to be 65% accurate in determining whether a driver has a blood alcohol concentration above .10. Like the Walk and Turn Test, the One Leg Stand Test receives a D grade for accuracy, assuming the officer did everything by the book. It is considered to be the most unreliable of the SFSTs. There are numerous reasons why a person could have difficulty balancing. Everything from a pre-existing medical condition, to wearing high heeled shoes could have an impact on a person’s ability to perform this test. Let us argue your case and fight assumptions that have little basis in science.
