DUI Charges Dropped - DUI
Client went to his car to get his medications and fell asleep in his driveway. Officers arrived and found him under the influence of his medications and arrested him for DUI. During the hearing to prevent his license suspension the client confided that the key he used to enter his vehicle is only to lock and unlock the car; it is not an ignition key. After locking the arresting officer into a set of facts, i.e., he did not try the key in the ignition, client testified. The hearing officer accompanied us to the parking lot and tested the key herself. Driver's license returned. I sent a copy of the audio from the DMV hearing to the prosecutor in the case and charges were dropped.
