Any number of mishaps can occur on your way home from a night out at your favorite New York pub with friends. Perhaps you realize, half way home, that you left your credit card at the checkout back at the restaurant. Maybe you get a flat tire a quarter mile from your house. One of biggest downers at the end of an otherwise pleasant evening is getting pulled over for suspected drunk driving.
Your nerves might have felt a bit rattled even before you knew why you were being pulled over. You may have figured you were traveling a few miles over the posted speed limit or had a tail light out. When the police officer instructed you to exit your vehicle, you realized it was likely something much worse.
Your next moments were probably filled with questions regarding whether you had imbibed alcohol before driving and whether you’d agree to take a field sobriety test. You do not have to answer the first question nor do you have to comply with the officer’s FST request. Hopefully, before you were arrested, the officer informed you of your Miranda rights.
No one charged with drunk driving in New York or anywhere is presumed guilty; it’s the opposite, in fact. You are guaranteed the opportunity to present a strong defense to dispute the charges against you. The Law Offices of Joseph J. Tock are fully equipped and committed to helping anyone seeking defense assistance to obtain the best outcome possible in court.
