  • Result: Not Guilty

Charges

  • Count 1- DUI

Facts

Our client was stopped by police for driving the wrong way down a one way street after returning home after her mother’s birthday party. It was late at night, the road was rural, and there was nobody else on the road. Our client admitted to the deputy that she was taking a quick shortcut to get home. After noticing signs that she had been drinking, the deputy conducted a DUI investigation. Our client agreed to do field sobriety tests. Instead of walking a hundred feet to a paved road, the deputy had her perform the tests on a dirt road, which the deputy said she performed poorly. The deputy arrested her for DUI and took her to jail where she refused to take a breath test.

Outcome

  • Count 1 – Our client was found not guilty after a jury trial.
