Case #: 20-CT-***207 – DUI Case Dropped
Our client was stopped for driving at night with no headlights on. When the police approached, our client handed the officer a bag of marijuana and his driver license. Our client's eyes were red/watery and his speech was slow. A Drug Recognition Expert was called to the scene and our client admitted to recently smoking a joint. The officer noticed signs of marijuana impairment. Roadside exercises were performed and our client was arrested. A breath test result registered .00, and a urine sample was not properly provided. The State Attorney initially refused to drop the case. Eventually, a reckless driving offer was extended, which was declined. The offer was improved, but again it was refused by our client. We demanded a jury trial. With the jurors upstairs, ready to start the trial, the State finally agreed to drop the DUI completely.
