DUI & Criminal Division

Client was stopped for attempting to enter through an exit gate by security personnel. The Client was then asked to do field sobriety exercises once law enforcement arrived. The officers determined he was DUI and arrested him for DUI for the fourth time. Once at the station the Client refused to give a breath sample. The State’s initial offer to the client was over half a year in jail. The Firm deposed some of the officers involved and determined that there was an improper arrest of the defendant because no one, other than the private security officers, could place the client behind the wheel. The firm filed a motion to suppress the arrest of the client. The Court agreed and granted the motion, which led to the State agreeing to dismiss all charges.
