Misdemeanor Case

  • Charges: DUI
  • Result: Not Guilty

Charges

  • Count 1 – Driving Under the Influence

Facts

Our client was stopped for driving without headlights. After the trooper allegedly smelled alcohol and observed some potential indicators of alcohol impairment, she asked our client out of the car to do field sobriety exercises. Our client did not perform to the trooper’s satisfaction and was arrested for DUI. She declined consent to a breath test and was taken to the Leon County Jail.

Outcome

The State would not agree to reduce or drop the charge so we went to trial. Our client was found not guilty after a jury trial.
