Misdemeanor Case

  • Charges: DUI
  • Result: Not Guilty

Charges

  • Count 1- DUI

Facts

Our client was driving over to a friend’s house late at night after having drinks earlier in the night when he was stopped for speeding. A deputy alleged that our client smelled of alcohol, slurred his speech, and had bloodshot eyes. After speaking with our client, the client admitted that he had drank earlier in the night. He also agreed to perform field sobriety tests which the deputy said he did not do well on. Unfortunately, the deputy did not have a dash camera so there was no video of what happened. After being arrested for DUI, our client refused to take a breath test.

Outcome

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