Case Conclusion Date:February 18, 2014
Practice Area:DUI / DWI
Outcome:OWI-Drug 1st offense dismissed.
Description:The police report in this case read like a law school exam. Client stopped for tint issues by a county sheriff not authorized to enforce the administrative code. The county sheriff then asked my client to move his vehicle a few blocks away for field sobriety tests. Then, the county sheriff immediately patted down my client when he exited the vehicle, without enough reason to do so. Client passed all field sobriety tests - no clues. No alcohol, just cough syrup. Filed a whole host of motions, and convinced the prosecutor the burden of proof in a drug case - that client was incapable of safely driving - could not be met based on this evidence.
