What is a DUI?

Hi ladies and gentlemen this attorney Jef Goldtrap from Nashville. I'm not in Nashville right now. In the video you see behind me beautiful lake. This is Lake Nicajack you'll see woods around me. Some beautiful surroundings. Things are wonderful. I'm having a great day and I hope you are too. I want you to close your eyes and imagine that you're at home one night. Maybe you've gone to bed. Maybe just settle down for the evening. Maybe its 1:30, 2:00, 3:00 in the morning and that phone rings. You know I've got children. The phone ringing in the middle of the night is not going to be good news. That phone rings and what you hear is, “mom, dad I'm at the police station.” what are you going to do? One of the most common crimes or one of the most common charges is driving under the influence, DUI. Let me ask you if your child, your husband, your wife, someone that you love calls you from a police station and says, “I was charged with driving under the influence,” what do you do? Were you aware that the field sobriety tests have got to be administered in a particular way? They’ve got to be walked through in a very particular way. It’s not just deputy do-right saying you've got to walk a line. Or, “you know I decided you have to take certain tests.” no there are specific field sobriety tests or tasks. Well Jef it's a scientific test. You know you can't fight science. Guess what, it's not a scientific test. Some of those tests to look for driving under the influence were designed to find out if you had VD. You may think what is one got to do with the other? Maybe not much of anything. Well Jef they took blood so it's got to be a DUI conviction. Really? What did the vial look like that they took the blood from? How did they handle the blood once they took it? Did they shake up the vial? Did they move the vial up and down? Did they roll the vial? Did they move it sideways? How did they prepare the site where they took the blood? Was the person that had blood taken in an accident? Was that arm leg or anything injured? Where was the blood taken? When was the blood taken where in the world did it go afterwards? Hey Jef those are great questions. What’s that got to do with anything? Folks it's got everything to do with your DUI case. Right behind me is a beautiful Lake Nickajack. Big deal, it's a lake. We’ve seen lakes. It’s a beautiful lake. It’s a lovely Lake. I imagine you could water-ski. You could fish. You could also drown. When you get that call late at night your loved one has been arrested for DUI. You could drown. You could accept defeat. You could but you could fight. You could lose your privileges to live in the free world. You could go to jail for 11 months 29 days. You could have a fine of up to $2,500. Plus court costs. Plus lose your license for a year. All of that can happen and all that may not happen. You don't live, breath and work DUI. I like DUI. I studied DUI. I just went to a seminar on how to defend you, your child, your husband, your friend, from a DUI charge. I could help you. Give me a call. Maybe I can help. If you don't call me then call another lawyer. With a charge of DUI you need help. Thank you.
