Case Conclusion Date:March 8, 2011
Practice Area:DUI / DWI
Outcome:License suspension dismissed
Description:Lance is a highly trained computer consultant. He's driving his BMW home with his wife. A police officer gets behind him and follows him for about five miles. Then he's pulled over for Failure to maintain lane. He ends up doing field sobriety tests, failing them, and gets arrested for DUI. At the station he blows a .111% on the Intoxilyzer 5000. He now gets charged with two DUI's. He's shocked because he knows he wasn't a drunk driver. He needs his license to make a living and support his family. We challenge the license suspension. We bring a certified court reporter to make a solid record to use later on at the criminal case. At the hearing, I cross-examine the cop. One thing leads to another and the officer didn't satisfy the burden of proof for the Administrative Law Judge. The suspension is denied. Lance walks away and drives while his DUI charges are pending in the State Court of Chatham County.
