B.C. (DUI Client)
Our client was facing his third DUI charge in 10 years. When arrested, his breath test reading was allegedly a 0.21, almost three times the legal limit. After reviewing discovery, including the video, we successfully convinced the prosecutor to dismiss the case for lack of reasonable articulable suspicion to initially stop the client. There was no evidence on the video that the officer had sufficient reason to pull our client over for failing to maintain lane. In addition, our client's performance on the Field Sobriety Test was in no way comparable to the alleged 0.21 breath test. We were able to show this inaccurate representation to the prosecutor who agreed, especially since the breath test was conducted on the old Intoxilyzer 5000 model.
