A: There is almost no way to answer this question with the information provided. If the officer suspected your tint was illegal he could stop you to investigate. The actual legality of it would not necessarily be a defense. However, it might be. The attendant facts are pretty important here. You probably should sit down with a local attorney and go through all of the facts to get a realistic picture of the likely outcome and whether or not there is a supressable issue.

A: The answer is of course you can beat this DUI, however you will need the help of a lawyer. Hiring a lawyer will give you the opportunity to challenge parts of your arrest and processing that were defective (if they were). Also, hiring a lawyer will assist you in determining whether the case can be won at trial. If you don't hire a lawyer you will guaranteed, accomplish none of those things.

Also, in many states there are timing issues with suspensions connected with DUIs. So you have to file motions to challenge suspensions as soon as possible. Good Luck.
