Case #: 20XXXT01XX36AXX NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was stopped for traveling more than 35 mph over the speed limit. After being stopped, the officer noticed that the Defendant smelled like alcohol, had bloodshot/glassy eyes and he denied drinking. He then stated he had one drink and then changed it to two Corona Lights. He was unsteady on his feet when he got out of the car and swayed while standing. He also said “can I call someone to pick me up, can I call my mom or dad, can I call someone, is it too late to phone a friend?” His speech was slurred and he performed poorly on roadside exercises. After being arrested, he was taken to jail where he refused to submit to a sample of his breath. The Firm negotiated with the State Attorney’s office and eventually was able to have them agree to dismiss the charges for Driving Under the Influence.
