Evaluating Field Sobriety Test Administration

Understanding field sobriety testing and their impact have on Defending A DUI Charge is very important. Police officers use Field Sobriety Tests to justify arresting you. They use them as evidence against you in trial. The judge sees this evidence. The Jury hears this evidence. It is crucial that the tests are evaluated by an Attorney with the proper training to assess them.  You need someone standing beside you who knows more. Who is prepared to turn their knowledge against them. To defend and protect you from improperly administered field sobriety test evidence.

Chances are that the officer that is arresting you is a Field Sobriety Test Practitioner. 95% of all Wisconsin Police Officers are field sobriety test practitioners, meaning they did the bare minimum to pass their training requirements. They are not instructors.  They do not have an in depth knowledge of these tests. They may know how to administer the tests but the training typically stops there.

Field sobriety tests are difficult to administer. For them to be presented as evidence against you, shouldn’t they be administered correctly?
