Facts

A trooper stopped our client for speeding in excess of 10 MPH over the posted limit. The officer alleges that he smelled alcohol and observed bloodshot eyes as well as slurred speech. The officer administered five field sobriety exercises and concluded that our client did not satisfy them, and arrested him. He was then taken to Leon county Jail.

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.
