No, Field Sobriety Tests are not definitive evidence in a New Jersey DUI case, and in many cases may not be admissible at all.
An experienced New Jersey DUI attorney can tell the difference between authorized Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs) and non-standard ones that police may sometimes use to throw an unsuspecting driver off.
A strong attorney can also raise questions about the level of training a police officer may have received and whether they were qualified to administer and evaluate FSTs in the first place.
It isn’t easy to beat a DUI charge in New Jersey, but when the main evidence is the observational testimony of a police officer, an experienced DUI attorney may be able to call those observations into question, or have the evidence thrown out entirely.
Attorney Matthew Reisig has helped more than 1,000 New Jersey drivers avoid conviction on DUI charges, and can make a difference in your case.
