Case #: 2016#######
The client was pulled over on his motorcycle for driving on US1 in the wrong direction. The officer noted that he had slurred speech, blood shot eyes, and an odor of alcohol emitting from his breath. Our client admitted to drinking 3 beers and 2 margaritas. The officer claimed our client performed poorly on the roadside tasks by failing to follow instructions, having balance problems, and being unable to lift his leg. After his arrest, our client provided a breath result of 0.175, over twice the legal limit. After hiring The Ticket Clinic, the attorney investigated the case and determined the exercises performed by the officer were unreliable based on the conditions on scene and the conditions of the client. Additionally, the attorney located evidence that suggested the breathalyzer result was unreliable. The attorney took the case to trial, cross examining the State’s witnesses and arguing to the jury why they should find reasonable doubt in the State’s case. After 45 minutes of deliberation, the jury found our client NOT GUILTY on all counts.
