MUNICIPAL COURT-TICKETS

The DUI claim was dismissed following a thorough investigation of the incident. 03/30/2015

It’s a Friday night. You’ve had a rough week at work. It’s the first time seeing your buddies in weeks, you’re surrounded by beautiful people, everybody’s laughing, and even that nasty whiskey tastes like sugar in the moment. You don’t realize where you are, what time it is, why you’re laughing, or that you’re operating a vehicle while completely inebriated. You are only aware of how perfect life seems… until the flashing lights are visible in your rear-view mirror. Then, Reality slaps you back to sobriety, and your inner conscience is screaming one thing, “I’ve made a mistake”.

It happens to the best of us. We could go all our lives with squeaky clean records only to have it go up in flames overnight. In the case of our client, it was not hard to establish that he was inebriated due to the BAC blood tests that were administered on the night of the incident. Typically, there is not much an attorney can do at this point as the laws specifically state that DUI cases are not to be plea-bargained.

However, even when there are overwhelming evidence against our client, it is this firm’s mentality to comb through every facts of the case.  The assigned attorney on the case, requested for every document the police had as evidence. It is imperative for officers to document evidence and establish the course of events during the arrest without error. In the case of our client, it was not hard to establish that he was inebriated due to the BAC blood tests that were administered on the night of the incident. However, the officers failed to document or secure evidence proving our client was in fact the driver of the vehicle. This factor, unknown to the Prosecutor until our attorney pointed it out, was detrimental for the State’s case against our client. Thus, on the basis that there is no evidence, our client’s DUI was dismissed.
