February 2018 - Second Offense Dismissed


My client was called in as an erratic operator. My client was asked to submit to a portable breath test in which she declined. She was placed under the arrest due to the fact that she was travelling in an improper lane and the officer claimed he smelt alcohol as well as blood shot/glassy eyes.

Maximum Penalty:

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.


My client's OUI-Liquor, Second Offense, charge and a marked lanes violation were both dismissed. Negligent operation of a motor vehicle was continued without a finding for six months. Great outcome.
