Officers witnessed a driver traveling 3-5 mph in a 45 mph zone, straddling the lane divider and swerving from right to left. The officer initiated a traffic stop and the driver exhibited signs of impairment. She failed field sobriety testing and refused to participate in a breath test. Officers arrested and charged the defendant with her third DUI offense within 10 years.
RESULT: The attorney moved forward with trial preparations. The defense argued that the client’s diabetes caused her impairment behind the wheel. The defense successfully negotiated a plea of reckless driving plea resulting in NO DUI CONVICTION!
