The Facts

Case #: 2020-CT-****67 – Driving While License Suspended & DUI | Not Guilty Verdict

Charges

The Results

On July 5, 2020 our client was arrested for DUI and Driving While his License was Suspended. After failed negotiations, Ticket Clinic lawyers set the case for a jury trial. According to police, our client was leaving a bar and crashed his car and then tried to leave the scene. Our client said that his ex-girlfriend was driving at the time of the crash. When the police arrived, our client was in the driver's seat. The vehicle had become inoperable after the crash. Ticket Clinic lawyers presented several defenses during the trial.  First, we argued that the car was inoperable, so he could not have been "driving it". Next, we argued a "necessity defense" as his girlfriend left the vehicle in an unsafe manner, forcing our client to try to move the car. The trial lasted 2 days and the jury deliberated for less than one hour.  When they returned, the jury announced a verdict of NOT GUILTY to all charges.  Needless to say, our client was very happy!
