Hard work pays off again!
My client was going through a rough divorce. He tried to drown out his heartache by having too much to drink and was arrested for DUI which was his second DUI arrest within 5 years of a previous DUI. If he was convicted, he would have to serve a mandatory sentence behind bars. I poured over the case and searched for an weakness in the State’s case. No doubt the case was was bad. The video made by the officer’s in-car dash cam clearly showed that my client was impaired and that he never should have been behind the wheel.
My client was stopped for making an illegal right turn on a red light. I watched the video over and over. I was able to show that my client was stopped at the red light for at least 3-full seconds before turning. I filed a motion to supress evidence on the grounds that the stop unlawful. When the case was called up by the judge, the prosecutor announced that they were dismissing the case. Mandatory jail time and all of the other punishments were avoided. It was a great day for my client who had just finalized his divorce and was ready to make a fresh start on life.
