Case #: 2014#####7
After pulling over our client for speeding, an officer certified as a Drug Recognition Expert, noticed our client had blood shot eyes and dilated pupils that did not react to light. The officer suspected our client was impaired by marijuana. The officer claimed our client performed poorly on roadside exercises and found 2.5 grams of marijuana in the client’s car. Our client admitted to smoking marijuana a few hours earlier. A urine test revealed THC, the compound found in marijuana, was in the urine of our client. The officer charged our client with DUI and Possession of Marijuana. Our client was adamant that he needed his driver license to keep his job; both charges subjected his license to suspension. The firm’s attorney set the case for trial. On the day of trial the Prosecutor agreed to amend the DUI to reckless driving and to conditions that would save our client’s license from suspension.
