Case #: CT000******
The Client was involved in an accident with her 14 year old grandchild in the car. The Officers on scene suspected that the Client was impaired by alcohol, and requested that she perform roadside sobriety exercises. The Client performed poorly on said exercises and once she was arrested she refused to give a breath sample. She was charged with felony child neglect and DUI. The Firm immediately contacted the State Attorney's Office and argued that the Felony charge for Child Neglect was overcharged. The State agreed and dismissed the felony charge, which left only the DUI. The Firm argued to the State that the Defendant was extremely elderly and the exercises were not meant for someone of her age. In addition, there was no breath sample, so there was a lack of evidence. The State agreed and dismissed the DUI.
