Second Offense Found Not Guilty After Trial - June 2017
Police claimed that my client was driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. My Client lost his license for 30 days after submitting 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.
The breath test result was successfully excluded from evidence due to its unreliability as a result of the decision in Commonwealth v. Ananias. Because this significant piece of evidence was excluded, the Commonwealth could only present evidence of field sobriety tests and the officer's observations. Ultimately, the Client received a tremendous result and was found not guilty after trial.
