State v. Outten

Raul Ruiz

Case Conclusion Date:September 26, 2008

Practice Area:DUI / DWI

Outcome:All Charges Dismissed

Description:Our client was involved in an accident and caused both injury and property damage. He was charged with numerous infraction and three charges of DUI. The police officers observed that our client had the odor of alcohol, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, a flushed face, was confused, and was generally slow. Our client performed and failed the field sobriety exercises. He was taken to provide a breath test and blew over the legal limit. Motions were filed and I argued that despite all this evidence, the police still did not have enough reasonable suspicion of DUI to even begin a DUI investigation. The judge agreed and suppressed all evidence. The prosecutor then dismissed all charges.
