DUI & Criminal Division

The defendant was forced in to a DUI checkpoint in Cooper City, Florida. The defendant was observed by officers to have the odor of an alcoholic beverage, a flushed face, slurred and mumbled speech, and had a mismanaged appearance. The defendant admitted to consuming several drinks at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida and stated the other passengers were not as intoxicated as she was. The defendant submitted to a breath test resulting in a .121/.116, well over the legal limit. The Firm filed a Motion to suppress on behalf of our client challenging the constitutionality of the checkpoint; the arrest of the defendant and for Lack of Corpus Dilecti. The motion was granted on November 2, 2007 and the State was forced to drop all charges.
