Case #: 09-XXX723XXM10A NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was stopped by a member of the Broward Sheriff’s Office DUI Task Force. Upon making contact with the defendant, the deputy noticed the odor of an alcoholic beverage, blood shot watery eyes, a confused demeanor among other indicators of alcohol impairment. The defendant was asked to participate in roadside sobriety exercises and did so poorly. The defendant was arrested and submitted to a breath test, which registered a .062/.057 g/210L. The defendant was then asked to provide a urine sample, which she was unable to do. The Firm conducted a pre-trial investigation in to the circumstances surrounding the defendant’s inability to submit to a urine test and was able to show that the deputy let her use the bathroom when she got to the station and before she was requested to provide the sample. This evidence was conveyed to the State Attorney’s Office and they declined to file the DUI charges against our client.
