DUI & Criminal Division
Our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident. During the crash investigation, the officers on scene stated that our client displayed slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, and that there was an odor of alcohol on his breath. Our client also admitted to drinking wine prior to driving. Due to the severity of the accident, the officers did not ask our client to perform field sobriety exercises and instead asked him to provide a breath sample to determine the alcohol content of his breath. Our client refused and was subsequently arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence with Property Damage, a 1st degree misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail. The Ticket Clinic’s lead trial attorney for Broward County filed a motion to suppress, alleging that the officer’s request for a breath test was illegal and should be excluded from evidence. The court agreed and granted the motion, ordering that any evidence of our client’s refusal to submit to a breath test was inadmissible. Our attorney set this case for trial and on the day of trial, the State was forced to dismiss all charges against our client.
