Case #: 20XXCXXX00446 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was driving his intoxicated girlfriend home when an argument ensued between them. They were traveling northbound on I-95 in St. Lucie County when a Florida State Trooper pulled them over. According to the trooper, the defendant was speeding 89/70 and driving erratically by failing to maintain a single lane. The trooper claimed a strong odor of alcohol was coming from the vehicle. The trooper claimed that the defendant walked unsteady, had bloodshot eyes and slurred his speech. The trooper also claimed the defendant had failed the sobriety exercises. The defendant admitted to drinking two beers and a shot of liquor earlier in the evening. After arresting the defendant, the Trooper requested him to submit to a breath test. The defendant refused to submit. The Firm’s attorney set the case for trial. Prior to trial, the prosecutor attempted to resolve the case by offering a lesser charge of reckless driving. Confident in his representation by the Firm, our client refused the offer and went to trial. The firm’s attorney was able to persuade the jury to find our client NOT GUILTY.
