Case #: 2021-MM-**35 – Battery Charge Dropped

Charge

Battery

The Results

Our client was arrested for domestic battery against his adult son.  Our own investigation revealed that the son was the aggressor after a discovery of extreme bias. If we had not pursued the evidence needed to exonerate our client, and without knowing the nuances of the criminal investigation, this case could have dragged on for months. Due to the evidence that we were able to obtain and by leveraging a bond hearing to explain the true facts of the case, Ticket Clinic lawyers were able to get the case dropped by the State Attorney's office quickly, before the first docket call!

Charge

DUI

The Results

Without counsel, our client entered a plea to driving under the influence while incarcerated at the Duval County Jail.  English is not his first language and he was still under the affects of his night of drinking.  However, the Judge accepted his plea.  He then hired the Ticket Clinic to withdraw his previously entered plea.  The plea was withdrawn by the Judge.  The TTC Attorney argued the weaknesses of the case to the prosecutor.  The State agreed to reduce the charge to Reckless driving, no conviction, terminate probation after a month, since all conditions were completed prior to entering the plea.

Case #: 2000XXXXXXA – DUI & Reckless Driving

Charge

DUI

The Results

Our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident in which his car allegedly collided with that of an off duty Sheriff's Office 911 dispatcher. During the aftermath of the accident, our client allegedly got into a verbal altercation with witnesses and fled the scene. Officers alleged that when our client returned to the scene, he struck the vehicle of a Police Department service aide, who was on the scene completing the initial crash investigation. Witnesses on the scene alleged that our client appeared to be impaired by an unknown substance and that he was unsteady on his feet and slurred his speech. Officers arrested our client for Driving Under the Influence and transported him to the Breath Alcohol Testing center, where he performed field sobriety exercises on video for courtroom presentation. Despite the fact that our client informed officers that he was permanently disabled, officers did not permit our client to use his cane while performing the exercises and failed to offer him alternative exercises appropriate for someone with a permanent disability. Our client provided a breath sample that showed he had no alcohol in his system. Determined to pin this case on our client, officers ordered him to provide a urine sample, which tested positive for his prescription medication for arthritis and a seizure disorder as well as Benadryl. The Ticket Clinic's attorney was able to convince the prosecutors that because Benadryl is not a controlled substance and the controlled substances that were in his system would stay in his system for 2-3 days after consumption, they would be unable to eliminate Benadryl as the sole cause of impairment to show that our client was impaired by a controlled substance at the time of the crash. Our attorney set the case for trial and dared the State to prove its allegations. The State Attorney's office was forced to drop the three separate DUI charges and our client received a withhold of adjudication on the reduced charge of Reckless Driving, which will allow him to apply to FDLE to have this case sealed and expunged from his record.

Case #: 2020ct####### – DUI Charge Dropped

Charge

DUI

The Results

The defendant was charged with DUI after he was stopped at an intersection for getting outside of his vehicle and stumbling around in the officer’s presence.  Law enforcement made contact with the defendant and asked him to perform sobriety exercises, to which the defendant, after an argument, refused to agree to participate in.  Once arrested, he was taken to the breath alcohol testing facility. There he tried to perform a breath sample, but was unable to comply with the officers instructions and was deemed as refusing to provide a breath sample.  The Firm began investigating the case, and argued to the State that there was simply not enough evidence to prove the charge of DUI.  After over a year of negotiating, partly because of the pandemic, the State agreed to dismiss the DUI charge on the morning of trial.

Case #: XXXXXXMU10A – DUI Charge Dropped

Charge

DUI

The Results

Our client was found unconscious in a ditch on the side of US 27 in Weston facing southbound near the northbound lanes of travel. Officers testified that it appeared that he had fallen asleep while driving and veered off of the road into the grassy swale between lanes of travel. Officers were eventually able to wake our client up, at which point he appeared disoriented and attempted to leave the scene in his vehicle before officers smashed his driver's side window and physically stopped his vehicle from moving forward. Once removed from the vehicle, officers alleged that our client became combative and argumentative, refusing to cooperate with their investigation. During the incident, officers observed an open bottle of Heineken in the center cup holder and smelled an odor of alcohol on our client's breath. Officers alleged that this disruptive behavior continued at the hospital, where our client allegedly attempted to fight deputies and hospital staff while they attempted to treat him. The attorney for the Ticket Clinic was able to convince prosecutors that various underlying medical conditions caused or contributed to his behavior and that the officers actions in breaking the window to effectuate a second traffic stop violated the 4th amendment protections against unlawful search and seizure. As a result of our attorney's efforts, the State Attorney's Office dropped all DUI charges against our client and he was able to plea to the reduced charge of reckless driving and received a withhold of adjudication, allowing him to potentially seal and expunge this case from his record.

Case #: 21-XXXXXX10A: Carrying a concealed firearm w/multiple drug felonies

Charge

Felony Posession of a Concealed Firearm

The Results

Our client was pulled over after Sheriff Deputies identified her vehicle as one reported to have been involved in a shootout on I-95 and for having a fraudulently attached license plate registered to a vehicle of a different make and model. After being stopped by law enforcement, our client spontaneously exited her vehicle, which was riddled with bullet holes, inadvertently allowing deputies to observe a loaded .380 Smith & Wesson revolver partially concealed under the driver's seat. The deputies on scene discovered that she had out of county warrants, detained her, and searched the vehicle for other contraband. During this search, deputies discovered Xanax, Amphetamine, and almost a pound of marijuana. Our client was arrested for 4 separate felony charges: Carrying a Concealed Firearm, Possession of Amphetamine, Possession of Alprazolam (Xanax), and Possession of Marijuana over 20 grams. Each of these counts carried a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison, for a grand total of 20 years. The Ticket Clinic attorney immediately began to attack these charges, arguing that the State was unable to adequately connect her to the gun or the marijuana and that they could not prove that the Xanax or Amphetamine were obtained without a valid prescription. As a result of our efforts, within two months of her arraignment, the State was forced to drop all charges against our client.

The Results

Our client was pulled over for speeding and failing to maintain a single lane. When the officers approached the vehicle, they observed an open beer bottle in the cup holder and claimed that our client had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and an odor of alcohol coming from his breath. After ordering him out of the vehicle, they subjected him to field sobriety exercises and ultimately arrested him for Driving Under the Influence. Our client cooperated with law enforcement and provided two valid breath samples that were both below the legal limit. Not satisfied with this, the officers ordered him to provide a urine sample to test for the presence of controlled substances and held him in the jail overnight. The Ticket Clinic attorney was able to attack this case before it was filed, and the State Attorney's Office was forced to drop all charges, including the civil traffic infractions for open container, speeding, and failure to maintain a single lane.

Racing

The Results

Our client was charged with Racing on the Highway, a crime that carries a penalty of a mandatory $500 fine and 1 year Driver's License Suspension. Based upon the evidence received, our attorney sought to depose the officer who witnessed the alleged crime. The officer's testimony at the deposition offered nothing into the case other than conclusions and guesses, so our attorney filed a Motion to limit the Officer's testimony to what would be legally permissible in court, so as not to taint the jury with inadmissible evidence to consider. Prior to hearing the Motion, the State offered to reduce the charge to a civil citation with no points added to our client's DL.

DUI

The Results

According to the police officer, our client almost hit the officer during another traffic stop on a residential street. He was pulled over and after signs of impairment were noticed, he was asked to perform roadside exercises. During the stop, the driver called a friend to the scene for assistance. The friend arrived, but was turned away, as the DUI investigation had started and was being conducted at a gas station.  Ticket Clinic lawyers took over the case and obtained the roadside video which seemed to show little to no signs of impairment. Combined with a lack of evidence and an argument that our client's rights were violated, as the officer prevented the friend from videotaping the investigation, we were able to convince the State Attorney to drop the DUI charge.

DUI

The Results

The State Attorney's office charged our client with DUI causing Serious Bodily Injury, a 3rd degree Felony that carries a minimum/mandatory sentence of 4 years in prison. The State Attorney's office alleged that our client spent a day at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood drinking and gambling with friends; and that on his way home, he was involved in a serious car crash while travelling approximately 90 miles per hour. Our client's passenger suffered a broken neck, and a witness on scene allegedly heard our client admitting that he was drunk.

Case #: 21-XXXXXXXX10A – All Charges Dropped

DUI

The Results

Our client was charged with Driving Under the Influence and Resisting an Officer Without Violence after police officers encountered her in a gas station parking lot while responding to a call regarding a domestic disturbance. During the investigation, our client admitted to officers that she drank two beers at a Florida Panthers game and struck a curb while driving home. After their investigation, officers attempted to arrest her for DUI, but alleged that our client resisted by tensing her arms and resisting efforts to put her in handcuffs. The Ticket Clinic attorney in Broward County prepared a motion to suppress all of the evidence gained as a result of her detention, alleging that because the officers did not physically observe her driving, they could not lawfully arrest her for DUI. Our attorney further argued that because the arrest for DUI was unlawful, our client could not be charged with resisting an unlawful arrest. The State Attorney's office dropped all criminal charges against our client without requiring a hearing on the motion to suppress
