Episode 24 (Criminal Justice): How Does DUI Work?

Have you ever been curious as to how a DUI works- from the police stopping a vehicle through to a jury trial? DUI criminal defense practice is a recognized specialty area of law due to its complexity.

Finally, there is a lot of controversy over the accuracy of the breathalyzer machine that Florida law enforcement (along with many other states) use to determine blood alcohol content- the Intoxilyzer 8000.

Listen to learn about these issues and Florida procedural and legal practices for a DUI investigation and arrest.
