A driver caused a traffic accident after he experienced diabetic ketoacidosis, a life-threatening complication of diabetes. The Police felt that alcohol also contributed to the crash and investigated the driver for DUI. The Police requested a breath sample and informed the Driver he would lose his license if he refused to cooperate. The Driver submitted to a Breathalyzer Test and had difficulty completing it. The Police arrested the Defendant and charged him with DUI.
RESULT: The Defense aggressively challenged the facts of the case against the Prosecution. The Defense documented and presented to the Court that the Client suffered from many medical conditions besides diabetes that may have impacted the Breathalyzer Test. The Attorney persuaded the State not to file charges. The State DISMISSED the case against our Client.
