    2nd DUI Offense Dismissed
    Description:
    The case looked bad when the client first met with me. He had a high breath test, problems parking his boat, and it was his second offense in just two years. We did not have much to work with. We filed Motions attacking the high breath test and how the field sobriety tests were conducted. In the middle of a suppression hearing, the officer admitted that he kept walking away from the client when he was supposed to be observing him for 15 minutes. The officer admitted he did not know how to run the breath machine and needed help. When the hearing was done, the judge suppressed the breath test citing that the officers are getting too lazy on this issue. The field tests were not conducted in accordance with the standards. The State was left with little evidence. The DUI was dismissed, the client took responsibility for driving his boat recklessly and paid a small fine.

The officer did a mouth check and only allowed 12 minutes to elapse before giving the breath test. The result was .16. A motion was filed to suppress the breath test and the officer did not know anything about the defect because the intoxilyzer 8000 is not supposed to work unless 15 minutes elapses.
