Case #: 20XXXT00XX99AXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was traveling 60 in a 40 mph zone and failing to maintain a lane while affecting other traffic. The car stopped for the officer where he appeared intoxicated. The driver spoke slowly and with a slur and had red/glassy eyes. Additionally, he smelled like alcohol and had difficulty following and remembering any instructions given. He said he had a “few” drinks. He performed poorly on roadsides and was arrested. At the jail he blew a .193 and .198. The Defendant’s license was administratively suspended for 6 months for that unlawful breath. The Firm was able to reinstate the Defendant’s driving privileges at his formal review hearing. The Firm negotiated with the State Attorney’s Office where the State ultimately agreed to dismiss the charges for Driving Under the Influence. The never went a day without some form of license.
