June 7, 2017

Client charged with DUI. Police perform field sobriety tests and portable breath test shows .104 BAC. Discovered problems with investigative techniques, field sobriety tests, and blood draw. Utilized significant weaknesses from the investigation to get prosecution to drop DUI down to reckless driving, a lower-level misdemeanor. Client does no jail (as opposed to mandatory jail for a DUI), pays minimal fine, has no requirements to get ignition interlock installed or high-risk auto insurance. A solid outcome on a case with potentially huge consequences. DUI dropped to reckless driving misdemeanor – no jail, no ignition interlock, no SR-22 insurance
