Misdemeanor DUI Charges Leon County Not Guilty

Misdemeanor Case

  • Charges: DUI
  • Result: Not Guilty

Charges

  • Count 1 – Driving Under the Influence

Facts

A trooper stopped our client after observing her turning right through a red light without stopping. The officer alleges that he observed slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. The officer administered four field sobriety exercises and concluded that our client did not satisfy them, and arrested her. She was then taken to Leon county Jail where she declined a breath test.

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.
