The Client was involved an accident and attempted to leave the scene of said accident but was stopped by law enforcement. Once stopped by the Officer it was determined that he was under the influence of alcohol and was then transported to jail where he provided a breath sample that was more than twice the legal limit. The Firm investigated the case and discussed the matter with the Assistant State Attorney, which refused to dismiss the DUI charge and the leaving the scene charge. The Firm discussed the issue with the State that the Client had served in an active combat zone with the military ,on two occasions, and had suffered numerous injuries as a result. This fact, combined with the fact that the Client did not have a prior record, led the State to finally agree to dismiss both the DUI charge as well as the leaving the scene without fulfilling a lawful duty charge.
