Field Sobriety Tests

If you are pulled over in Marietta for a suspected DUI, the officer is likely going to perform field sobriety to see if you are under the influence. The Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) is made of 3 individual tests:

  • Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN) test - In this test, the officer will observe the eyes of the person in question as they slowly move a pen or small object back and forth to look for indicators in each eye that the person is impaired.
  • Walk-and-turn test - In this test, the officer instructs the person to take nine steps, touch heel-to-toe in a straight line, and then return. The officer is looking to see if the person cannot keep their balance, starting before the instructions are finished, or not following the instructions properly.
  • One-leg stand test - In this test, the officer instructs the person to stand with one foot off the ground and hold it for about 30 seconds or until told to put it down. The officer looks for signs such as swaying, hoping, or using their arms to balance.

Defenses Against DUI

If you are arrested for DUI, law enforcement and prosecutors will try to paint you as an irresponsible driver whose license must be revoked. I can help you tell your side of the story. As a former state prosecutor, I know the strategies used by your accusers and how to respond.

Every case is different, and there are many ways to defend against a charge of DUI. We may be able to show that:

  • Your traffic stop was unlawful
  • Field sobriety testing was improper
  • You were not a “less safe” driver when you were stopped
