Client was charged with DUI, after being caught speeding 40 mph in a 25 mph zone. The officer, that conducted the traffic stop, smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver’s breath. It was also observed, that the driver had blood shot watery eyes, and his face was flushed. When asked by the officer if he had been drinking, our client denied the charge, to then admit that he “had three or four beers.” The officer informed our client that he would be conducting a DUI investigation. After agreeing to field sobriety exercises and failing, he was placed under arrest for DUI and transported to jail.
RESULT: The attorney successfully negotiated on behalf of our client, that the State reduce the DUI charge to reckless driving, resulting in a small fine and minimal court costs. No DUI Conviction!
