Case #: 2019*******2
Our client was pulled over for speeding. The officer noted evidence of recent consumption of alcohol including beer bottles with cold liquid and containers with rum strewn throughout the inside of the car. The officer also noted our client smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slow speech. The officer alleged our client performed poorly on the field sobriety exercises and later conducted a breath with a result of 0.111. The client was charged with his 3rd DUI, which if convicted, the punishment would involve lengthy incarceration and loss of drivers license. The attorney for the firm filed a motion to suppress recognizing that the officer had not conducted the exercises or the breath test in a manner that was lawful. Upon receiving the firm’s legal documents, the prosecutor offered a lesser of Reckless Driving with minor sanctions involving no jail or license suspension.
