You have the right to say "NO" to an interview
Never feel that because you have unwillingly been involved in an incident of public interest that you must personally share the details and or your feelings with the general public via the media. By knowing and requesting respect for your rights, you can be heard and yet not violated.

Other Resources: The Florida Department of Law Enforcement keeps public electronic records of all Intoxilyzer 8000 documents at www.fdle.state.fl.us/atp under "Public Records" and "ARS". Since those records are uploaded electronically, FDLE's website may contain very recent records not immediately available on the State Attorney's Office website. Breath Test Permits, HGN Logs, Uniform Guidelines for Checkpoints, DRE Logs, and DUI Room Key Logs may be available via a public records request of the police agencies, or via subpoena.

Litigation Packets: To obtain documents from the forensic toxicology lab in blood and urine cases, you must fax or mail the request to the attention of H. Chip Walls at the University of Miami Forensic Toxicology Lab, 12500 Southwest 152nd Street, Building B, Miami, Florida, 33177 (305) 232-7020, fax (305) 232-7461. You must pay a reasonable cost for the photocopying before the documents are produced. When the lab receives payment, the lab will forward the documents within ten (10) days. If the laboratory fails to do so, you should file a Motion for an Order to Show Cause with the court. You may request the confirmatory test, calibrations done on the instruments the day of the confirmatory test; chain of custody documents; property receipt; instrument maintenance and repair records.



PLEASE NOTE:


The State reserves the right to refrain from providing any and all non-exculpatory, non-impeachment documents that the State does not intend to introduce in a particular defendant's hearing or trial. The State has the sole discretion to determine what it intends to use at hearing or trial. See Rule 3.220. This document is not a contract and does not obviate a defendant's obligation to investigate his or her own case or to exercise due diligence. We reserve the right to argue that the State's failure to provide any of the documents does not entitle the defense to a State-charged continuance.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact the State Attorney's Office at (305) 324-2900. Thank you.
