Case #: 2019cf####0 | Impersonating an officer & Reckless Driving

Charge

Reckless Driving

The Results

The client was stopped by a Florida State Trooper after he was driving over the speed limit and weaving through other traffic. Once stopped and in the back of the troopers car he allegedly stated he was a lieutenant in the fire department, which he was not.  The firm was hired and immediately made contact with the Assistant State Attorney in the matter to discuss the case. The State informed the firm that the Client, based upon a significant prior criminal history, scored mandatory prison for a term around 5 years. The Firm deposed the trooper in the case and discovered that a video did exist detailing the entire event.  However once counsel attempted to obtain said video it was admitted by law enforcement that the video was prematurely deleted. As a result the firm filed a motion to dismiss the case. Based upon the high probability that the firm would succeed on said motion the State agreed to resolve the case without the Client having to do any jail.

Case #: A4O4xxxxxxx | DUI formal review hearing

Charge

DUI

The Results

On 03/18/21, at 0416 hours, Hillsborough County Deputy responded near the intersection of Dale Mabry Hw / County Line Rd Lutz, FL 33538. Upon arrival, he observed the driver (sole occupant), leaned against the trunk of his gray Honda sedan. The Deputy met with another Deputy and learned he made contact with the Driver on a traffic stop in reference to a reckless driver call for service and observed indicators of impairment. Upon making contact with the Driver, the Deputy introduced himself. While speaking with the Driver, he immediately advised he was not driving and should not be under investigation for DUI. The Deputy observed signs of impairment to include bloodshot, glassy eyes, slurred speech, unstable balance, and detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. The Deputy requested the Driver perform Standardized Field Sobriety Exercises and he refused. The Deputy advised the Driver that Standardized Field Sobriety Exercises are voluntary, and that the exercises confirm or dispel any suspicion of impairment. However, if he refused to perform the exercises, the Deputy would have to conclude the investigation and base his decision on the totality of the circumstances. The Deputy also advised Driver that refusal to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Exercises is admissible as evidence in a criminal proceeding. The Driver again refused to participate in Standardized Field Sobriety Exercises. Based on the totality of the circumstances, the Deputy determined the Driver was impaired to the extent his normal faculties were impaired. He placed the Driver under arrest for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). A query of the Driver in the Driver and Vehicle Information Database showed he had a prior conviction for DUI with a disposition date of 03/10/10. The Driver’s license was suspended for 12 months for refusal to submit to a breath test.
Results: The firm filed a request with the DHSMV for a formal review hearing to contest the 12 month administrative suspension. After the hearing, the suspension was invalidated.

Case #: 2020-CT-**** | DUI Case Dismissed

Charge

DUI

The Results

Client was involved in a single vehicle incident and transported to the hospital. While at the hospital, he was read "Implied Consent" by law enforcement, informing him that if he did not submit to a blood test, his driver's license would be suspended. Based on that information, client agreed to provide a blood sample. Months later, after the blood results were received by law enforcement, our client was officially charged with a DUI.

Upon review of the case, our attorneys filed a Motion to Suppress the blood request and results based on Florida's Implied Consent Law. The Implied Consent Law only requires a breath sample or urine sample be provided, except when certain criteria are met. In our client's case, those criteria were not met, so asking for a blood sample was improper by law enforcement. Based on the case law provided by our attorney, and the testimony at the hearing, the Judge ruled that the blood request, and results would not be admissible in any trial against our client. Without any evidence to prove that our client was impaired, the State dismissed the case.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident

The Results

The Client was arrested on a warrant in 2020 for allegations of a hit and run accident involving a child in the street from 1997.  The Client was unaware what the warrant was referring to and was shocked to find out there was a warrant out for his arrest.  The Firm was retained to handle the matter and immediately investigated why the Client had a warrant out for his arrest.  The Firm discovered that the Client was wanted in reference to a hit and run investigation from 1997 involving a child in the street on his bicycle.  However, the evidence in the file indicated no one actually witnessed the Defendant in any way in reference to the accident, and the State never tried to even find the Client to serve the warrant upon him.  The Firm researched the relevant case law and decided to file a motion to dismiss the case based upon the Statute of Limitations, which had expired.  The Firm filed the motion and after reviewing the matter the State agreed and dismissed the case entirely.

Case #: Charges: Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Fleeing or Attempting to Elude, and Reckless Driving

Charge

Fleeing and Eluding

The Results

Our client, a 19 year old, was charged with Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Fleeing or Attempting to Elude, and Reckless Driving. Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer is a charge that carries a mandatory prison sentence of 3 years. We were retained prior to the State filing charges against our client. Our attorney immediately contacted the Office of the State Attorney, and explained to them that the facts as presented in the Warrant for our Client's arrest did not support the charge of Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer. However, the State filed that charge anyway. Over the next few months, our attorney worked diligently to show the State that they could not prove the charge. Depositions were scheduled in order for the State to hear, from their own alleged victim, that the charge was not supported. Prior to the taking of depositions, our attorney highlighted the specific facts in the alleged victim's statement to the prosecutor assigned. The State dropped the charge. Our attorney went one step further. Utilizing the law, our attorney was able to ensure that our client did not become a convicted felon, even though Fleeing or Attempting to Elude requires a mandatory adjudication of guilt. Our attorney's diligence, and knowledge, prevented our client from becoming a convicted felon on his first offense, and convinced the State to drop a charge that carried mandatory prison.
