Officers initiated a stop on a driver illegally parked at the beach in the wee hours of the morning. The police started a DUI investigation, requested field sobriety testing and the driver refused breath testing. The officers arrested the defendant on charges of DUI.
RESULT: The defense filed a motion to dismiss the charges based on the lack of evidence on the client’s driving pattern, breath result or video of field sobriety testing. The State offered a charge reduction in lieu of moving forward with the hearing on the motion. The client chose to accept the plea deal resulting in NO DUI CONVICTION!
