Case #: 2017CT0######

Charge

DUI

The Results

The Client was stopped by law enforcement after a tipster called in information indicating that the person driving a silver Volvo with their license plate number was intoxicated. The Officer then stopped the Client’s silver Volvo and determined that the driver was impaired, and after performing poorly on sobriety exercises, transported him to the jail. At the jail the Client gave a breath sample that was over 4 times that legal limit. Because this was the Client’s second DUI within 3 years the State was seeking a significant amount of jail. The Firm was retained by the Client to handle the case. The Firm deposed the officer in the case and was able to get the officer to testify that the only information he had about the Client’s vehicle was that it was a silver Volvo, and nothing else, not even a license plate number. The Firm filed a motion to suppress all the evidence in the case based upon a bad stop of the Client’s vehicle. However, before the motion could be heard the State agreed to dismiss the DUI charge.

Case #: DE 2017-ct-###62

Charge

Failure to Obey Lawful Order

The Results

The facts are as follows: The client was operating her motor vehicle on her way home when she came across an accident scene where there were police directing traffic in the middle of the 2-lane road she was travelling on. In slow moving, bumper to bumper traffic, the client was attempting to make a left turn onto a road which her residence is located. A policeman who was directing traffic and was in the middle of the road, told the client not to make that turn because that road was blocked off. The client started to make the turn but stopped. The officer became irate and told the client to pull into a nearby business parking lot. The client complied and was charged with disobeying a police order. We sent an email to the State outlining the statute and the facts of the case, specifically:

Citing to FS 316.072, the crime of disobeying an officer occurs when:
1. An individual is operating a vehicle on a public road.
2. An individual is given a lawful order by a police officer.
3. An individual wilfully fails or refuses to comply with a lawful order.

The client is 72 years old and did not hear the initial lawful command from the officer, therefore there was no wilfull disregard of the lawful order as indicated by FS 316.072. Further, the pca corraborates, that the officer then stepped out and stopped The client vehicle, which indicates that she did, at this point, hear and complied with the order when she became aware of it. Further, the PCA states that the client also complied with the officers orders to pull into a parking lot. The client also complies with the officers request to provide dl, registration and insurance and answers all other questions posed by the officer.

This case seems to be a situation where the client, due to her age and hearing difficulties, was not aware of the initial order from the officer and did not wilfully disregard the order. This position is reinforced by Moyer’s subsequent complliance to all other orders issued by this officer.

The State agreed with us and NP’d the case on 10-23.

advised the Defendant of the Miranda warning. The Defendant made the following statements Post Miranda:
He was convicted of a DUI in 1995. He got caught again. He is guilty. He
does not believe his arrest is valid because Law Enforcement was
trespassing on his property. He hopes he gets a female judge to throw out
the case. He understand that the Investigator is doing his job and he is thankful that he is protecting the streets from drunks like him that could cause an accident
and hurt somebody. He is not that impaired. He understands that he was
wrong and should not have been drinking and driving but he got pulled over
