    DWI DISMISSED

    My client was charged in Newark New Jersey with DWI, reckless driving for having a head-on collision with another motor vehicle. After receiving all the police reports which indicated that my client's blood alcohol level (BAC) was a .14% I convinced the prosecutor that the BAC reading could not be used against my client because the reading were out of tolerance. Further, I argued that the field sobriety tests were insufficient to prove a DWI beyond a reasonable doubt. As a result, my client's case resulted in a plea to reckless driving and a fine, without any drivers license suspension.
