The Lawyers at Finebloom & Haenel are well versed at handling DUI cases in Tampa and Hillsborough but they have had success defending Florida’s drivers in many other counties, including Sarasota and Manatee. Our Tampa lawyers challenged the checkpoints in Sarasota and Manatee Counties and had the evidence in seven cases thrown out by two judges. For the first time since that ruling, the Manatee and Sarasota Sheriff’s Offices set up checkpoints last weekend.
As a result of the checkpoints, nine drivers were arrested for DUI, two for drug possession, one for drinking and driving by a minor and five for drivers who did not have a valid driver license. The checkpoint also resulted in 207 traffic citations being written. The checkpoint was set up on U.S. 41 at Edwards Drive and lasted from 10:00 p.m. Friday night until early the next morning.
