Case #: 2020ct####### – DUI Charge Dropped
The defendant was charged with DUI after he was stopped at an intersection for getting outside of his vehicle and stumbling around in the officer’s presence. Law enforcement made contact with the defendant and asked him to perform sobriety exercises, to which the defendant, after an argument, refused to agree to participate in. Once arrested, he was taken to the breath alcohol testing facility. There he tried to perform a breath sample, but was unable to comply with the officers instructions and was deemed as refusing to provide a breath sample. The Firm began investigating the case, and argued to the State that there was simply not enough evidence to prove the charge of DUI. After over a year of negotiating, partly because of the pandemic, the State agreed to dismiss the DUI charge on the morning of trial.
