  • — DUI Trial – Client was arrested for DUI (3rd Offense), Refusal, Leaving the Scene of an Accident (with bodily injury) and failure to wear seat-belt. Defendant faced a mandatory 180 days in jail and a 20 years loss of license if convicted. After lengthy pre-trial motions involving discovery and suppression issues, the case went to trial. On day one, defense counsel subjected the arresting officer to a grueling cross examination as to the proper administration of field sobriety tests. Many times during his testimony, the officer admitted he failed to follow protocol. Prior to day two of trial, defense counsel submitted a new expert report as to blood evidence which indicated the defendant could have been suffering the effects of a diabetic emergency stemming from low blood sugar. As a result of the expert’s report and poor testimony by the arresting officer, the State dismissed the DUI and defendant pleaded guilty to Refusal. Defendant received a 10 year loss of license but received no time in jail.

    — DUI Trial – Client charged with DUI and several other moving violations. The client’s alleged B.A.C. was .16%. Defense successfully had the breath test thrown out. After several other pre-trial motions, the case went to trial. At trial, the defense exposed conflicting accounts about what transpired by two police officers at the scene. The defendant was found not guilty of the DUI, but guilty of two moving violations.

    — DUI Trial – Client was arrested and charged with DUI, DUI in a school zone, Refusal and Reckless driving. In this case, the defendant drove through a roadside sobriety checkpoint.

    — DUI Trial – Client charged with DUI and a parking offense.
