Case #: DUI Lawyer St. Lucie County | Case # 2020CTXXXX4
Our client is a senior citizen who was driving out of her driveway to meet friends to play cards and mistakenly struck a bicyclist causing minor injury. The police arrived and eventually arrested our client alleging she was driving under the influence of alcohol. The firm’s attorney investigated the case and learned the client was left inside her home alone after the crash, but prior to when the police arrived. The attorney for the firm argued the State would not be able to prove the client was impaired, but even if the prosecutor was able to prove impairment, the prosecutor would not be able to prove she was impaired at the time she was driving. The firm's attorney revealed the client had access to alcohol stored inside her house. The prosecution conceded and offered a lessor of Reckless Driving. The client accepted the favorable outcome in lieu of a trial.
