August 2017 - Second Offense Found Not Guilty After Trial
My client was stopped at a roadblock. The police claimed that my client was driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. My client's license was suspended for 3 years for refusing to submit to a breath test.
Potential incarceration for no less than 60 days, 30 days mandatory, with a fine between $600 and $10,000, in addition to a 2-year loss of license for the conviction.
On cross-examination of the arresting officer, I successfully pointed out that my client informed the officer that he had a leg injury and could not perform field sobriety tests. A witness who was in the vehicle with my client when he was stopped at the roadblock testified on behalf of my client, stating that he had no concerns about my client's ability to safely drive a motor vehicle. Ultimately, my client received a tremendous result and was found not guilty after trial.
