Practice Area:DUI / DWI
Outcome:All charges dismissed outright four days before trial
Description:Experience, tenacity, and dutiful forensic investigation pay off. Alex De Marco achieved an outright dismissal of a DWI case. No pleas to lesser charges. Nothing. Defendant had several prescription controlled substances in his system, and a side of marijuana. Alex was able to demonstrate that the substances were prescribed, he took them as prescribed, and that the THC was actually a secondary bi-product, the amount of which clearly indicated defendant was not high at the time. Further, Alex was able to prove that these certain prescription drugs could result in sleepwalking activity, including the involuntary operation of a motor vehicle, a not uncommon phenomenon with the use of certain prescriptions.
