Case Conclusion Date:June 24, 2013
Practice Area:DUI / DWI
Outcome:OVI Reduced to Reckless Operation
Description:Client was arrested in the early morning hours for excessively speeding in his vehicle. Police officers removed client from his vehicle to investigate whether he was driving while impaired. At first, client denied drinking alcohol, but later admitted to drinking alcohol after being questioned by officers. Client performed field sobriety tests at the request of officers and was then arrested and charged with OVI and other traffic offenses. In Court, I filed a motion to suppress evidence on behalf of my client and exploited problems with the State's case. I subsequently negotiated a plea to a reduced charge of Reckless Operation and avoided an OVI / DUI conviction for client.
