DUI Reduced to Reckless Driving – 10/11/2016
Client was stopped for speeding. Officer claimed to smell alcohol and notice other signs of intoxication. After performing field sobriety exercises, the client was arrested and refused a breath test. The client was already on probation for a prior arrest for Disorderly Conduct, and was charged with a Violation of Probation (VOP) as a result of the DUI arrest. Longwell Lawyers prepared the DUI and VOP cases for trial. Just before the date of the trial, the Judge revoked the client’s bond because the client allegedly tested positive for alcohol numerous times while out on bond. However, based on the strong defenses Longwell Lawyers prepared for trial, the State dropped the DUI to a Reckless Driving. The Client received no additional sanctions for the VOP, and the Judge withdrew the capias/warrant for the violation of PTR.
No Sanctions on VOP and the Violation of PTR charge was dropped.
