DUI & Criminal Division

The Defendant went to a gas station early in the morning and bought wine and cigarettes. About an hour later, the Defendant came back into the gas station extremely impaired and was looking for her cigarettes. The clerk at the gas station told her not to drive. The Defendant had pulled her car right up to the curb away from where she was parked by the vacuums. The clerk called the police and did not allow the Defendant to drive away. When the officers got there, the Defendant was sitting in the driver’s seat of the car with the keys in the ignition and the engine running. She was extremely impaired and performed poorly on roadsides. After being arrested, she gave a breath sample of .145 and .156. The Firm fought the case for almost a year while taking numerous depositions. The Firm negotiated with the State Attorney’s Office where the State ultimately agreed to dismiss the charges for Driving Under the Influence.
