Case #: 20XXCTXX59 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
A Florida Trooper pulled the defendant over for speeding in Port St. Lucie. The officer noticed that the defendant had an odor of alcohol, her speech was slurred and her eyes were red and glassy. The defendant admitted to coming from a pub where she drank two beers. The defendant also told the officer that she knew she was impaired and that she shouldn’t be driving, but asked for leniency because she used to date another trooper. The defendant performed poorly on the filed sobriety exercises and was arrested for DUI. The defendant refused to provide a breath sample. The firm’s Treasure Coast attorney developed defenses that he believed would likely call for the defendant’s acquittal if the State were to take the case to trial. The prosecutor agreed and dismissed the DUI charge.
