Your health and the walk-and-turn test

If you have been arrested for and charged with a driving under the influence offense in Nebraska, you were likely required to take a series of field sobriety tests before you were placed under arrest. As explained by FieldSobrietyTests.org, these tests are not intended to prove that you were drunk but rather to show that you might be drunk. It is the law enforcement officer's way of providing probable cause for arresting you.

Prison sentence for Nebraska man convicted on 5th DUI

A 52-year-old man in Norfolk, Nebraska, has a history of DUI convictions dating back to the year 2006. An incident in February resulted in his fifth DUI conviction. In the past, the man has successfully completed the probation sentences he received for his previous convictions. In this case, despite a request from his defense attorney for Specialized Substance Abuse Supervision probation, which she argued was more suitable for someone addicted to alcohol as her client appears to be, the judge sentenced the man to a prison term of four to six years on the DUI charge. A second charge of obstructing a police officer garnered an additional three-month sentence. 

IIP eligibility after a DUI

Among the many concerns that a driver in Nebraska is likely to have after an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol is whether or not they will lose the right to drive for a period of time. For many people, the ability to drive is directly linked to their ability to get to and from work and, therefore, to support themslves and maybe even their family as well. It is no wonder, then, that driving privileges after a DUI evoke a lot of concern.

What is the one-leg stand test?

Can a sober person fail a field sobriety test?

If you get pulled over and you are asked to perform a field sobriety test, you might assume that if you hadn’t had anything to drink, you have nothing to worry about. However, you and other Nebraska residents should understand what a field sobriety test entails, which could shed light on how you might fail one of these tests, despite being sober.
