Case #: 2021CT######### – Boating Under The Influence Dismissed
The Client was enjoying himself on his boat with friends when he was stopped for having too many people on his boat. During the course of his encounter with law enforcement it was determined that the Client had been drinking and was impaired. The Officer had the Client do several sobriety exercises. The Client performed well on the exercises. Subsequently the Client was asked to submit to a breath sample, which the client also passed. Lastly, the Client was asked to submit to a urine sample, which came back negative for controlled substances. The Firm presented all these facts to the State Attorney’s Office, which refused to dismiss the case because their view was the exercises weren’t performed well enough to dispel impairment. The Firm set the case for trial several times and presented case law to the State as well. Finally the State agreed to dismiss all charges.
