September 2017 - Second Offense Dismissed
My client was pulled over for failure to stop for a red light. He performed Field Sobriety Tests. As a result, the police then claimed that my client was driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. My client submitted to a breath test after he was transported to the police department.
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.
Based upon the numerous motions I filed challenging the reliability of the breath test used to prosecute my client, the DA dismissed the OUI-Liquor, second offense charge. The motions, combined with my client's veteran status, successfully allowed the charge to be dismissed.
