DUI .101 blood alcohol

November 18, 2016

Client charged with 2 counts of DUI. Blood alcohol measured at .101. Client facing mandatory jail, fines, alcohol classes, ignition interlock device. Client alleged to have driven in a two way turn lane for a mile and a half. Odor of alcohol, slurred speech, poor balance. Reviewing laboratory results, I found likely contamination. Field sobriety tests not properly conducted. Mitigation utilized in deviation request to prosecutor to significantly lower client’s charges. Result = DUI charges dropped, client pleads no contest to reckless driving. No jail, no probation, no alcohol classes, no ignition interlock device. Happy client and client’s family. DUI .101 blood alcohol – dropped to reckless driving, no jail, no probation
