"I want to know if I made the right decision not taking the tests"

Posted by William H. Sherman | Jan 25, 2015 | 0 Comments

The tests are the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, or SFST’s. The Cobb police officer wanted to use the tests to help build a DUI case against you. In many ways, the SFST’s are designed to be failed. And they are completely voluntary. Practically speaking, if an officer is requesting that a driver take the tests, chances are the officer will arrest the driver whether the tests are taken or not. Declining the tests does not have overt consequences. However, should the case proceed to trial, the Cobb prosecutors will likely try and introduce the individual’s refusal as evidence the person knew they were going to fail.

“I just wanted to write to say that I feel so lucky to have chosen the Sherman Law Group as my attorneys. I was going through such a very difficult legal situation. It was emotionally charged and draining. But Valerie Sherman and Bill Sherman were so supportive, hardworking and helpful. I loved that the firm was always updating me and letting me know what was going on in my case. You always returned my calls and emails. Thank you all for making it work out great for me.”
