2019-CT**** – Second DUI Charge in 5 Years Reduced

The Facts

Case #: 2019-CT**** – Second DUI Charge in 5 Years Reduced

Charges

The Results

Our client was arrested and eventually charged with a second DUI inside of 5 years. Upon reviewing the evidence, our attorney filed not one, but two motions to suppress evidence. After being unsuccessful in having the traffic stop declared improper, our attorney was able to successfully argue that the field sobriety exercises were coerced by law enforcement. The Court rules that the field sobriety exercises could not be introduced as evidence. On the day of trial, the State agreed to reduce the charge to Reckless Driving, with minimal sanctions. The amendment allowed our client to avoid the mandatory 10 days in jail that come with a 2nd DUI inside of 5 years.
