DUI Reduced - DUI
Our client was pulled over because the registration on his vehicle had expired 4 days earlier. The police claimed to smell alcohol on his breath and required him to complete field sobriety tests. Review of the dashboard camera video showed that our client performed exceptionally well on the tests. At the DHSMV Administrative Review hearing, the arresting officer made several comments, on the record, that brought significant questions regarding probable cause to arrest our client to light. Based on the DHSMV transcript and the video evidence, we filed a Motion to Suppress the evidence against our client. After the State reviewed our motion, they reduced the charges to reckless driving. Adjudication was withheld – no conviction – and our client was able to avoid further suspension of his license.
