April 2018 - First Offense Dismissed
My client was involved in a motor vehicle accident on the side of the road. Officers responded to the scene and saw three individuals walk out of the woods, one of which was my client. All three individuals denied to be the operator of the motor vehicle but my client was the owner of the vehicle. The officers asked my client to submit to Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and he refused. He refused the breath test as well. My client was then charged with OUI-Liquor, First Offense, Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle, and a Marked Lanes Violation.
Imprisonment for not more than 2 1/2 years, or not less than $500, or both, plus $50 Victims of Drunk Driving Assessment, $250 Head Injury Assessment, and license revoked for 1 year.
Attorney Bernard filed a Motion to Dismiss due to the fact that the police officers were unable to prove who the operator of the motor vehicle was. The client's charge of OUI-Liquor, First Offense, was dismissed. Amazing result!
