    Most likely the charges will not be dropped in that situation. These matters may lead to the suppression of evidence, but if there is other evidence the State will not drop the charges. I would strongly recommend you retain a criminal defense attorney to assist you in the matter. My firm is located in Tampa and handles matters in your area. Our office number is 813 830 2261. We offer free case consultations. Good luck.

    I agree with Mr Sullivan. Additionally, the Court is going to be very frustrated and unforgiving concerning the violations of probation. Complete the hours and get an attorney. Good luck.

    Yes, you absolutely could be charged with DUI. Now whether you have a strong case for suppressing the results of the blood draw, that is a different question. You need to immediately retain a criminal defense attorney to begin working on this matter, but also to ensure you begin the administrative process with the DHSMV. Good luck.
