Practice Area: DUI / DWI
Outcome: Reduction to Negligent Driving First Degree
Description: This wonderful woman was stopped for no turn signal but eventually booked for DUI. Once stopped she failed all the officers tests and investigation points. In truth she was horribly nervous and had significant injuries to her ankles and the big toe of her feet. She unfortunately refused to provide a breath sample at the station after being wrongfully arrested. Since the City of Seattle refuses to negotiate DUI cases when the defendants refuse to offer breath samples the matter was set for trial. On the day of trial, when the judge was ready to call the jury in, the City offered to reduce the charge in two years if she was law abiding. Not a problem for the otherwise lawful woman in her fourth decade of life. S.C. was a happy woman.
