Motion to Suppress BAC below 0.08 Granted

If a driver is presumed impaired and the BAC is less than 0.08, the Florida Supreme Court has established specific guidelines for the court to follow. Here is an example of those issued instructions.

Beyond a reasonable doubt, the state must prove these two points of law:

  1. That the Defendant drove or was in actual physical control of a vehicle
  2. While driving or in actual physical control of the vehicle the defendant's "normal faculties were impaired"
Some issues that could be disputed are: if the defendant drove, if the defendant was in "actual physical control", and if the defendant's "normal faculties were impaired."
