Field Sobriety Tests
Plano DWI Attorney
A field sobriety test is a method used by police officers for two reasons: the first reason is to determine if you are intoxicated or over the legal limit. The second reason is to compile evidence against you, indicating that you were indeed over the legal blood alcohol limit, in the event that you were to take this case to court. The test is made up of three parts, the one leg stand, the walk and turn, and the horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN). All three of these tests are pretty self-explanatory, and rather simple to perform. If the test is not performed to the satisfaction of the inspecting police officer, the results can, and probably will, be used as evidence against you.
It is important to know that although all of these tests seem somewhat scientific and incriminating if failed, this evidence is not always accurate and can easily be combatted by an experienced criminal defense attorney. There are a number of ways that the test can produce inaccurate results, for example the surface on which the test is performed must be flat, dry, hard, and smooth. If the ground does not comply with these standards, it can interfere with the subject's test and produce inaccurate results. There are several other ways that false results can easily be obtained, therefore this test is not always accurate and should be looked into by a criminal defense attorney to avoid potential wrong conviction.
