We are here to help you stand up for your rights and your driving privilege, no matter what the prosecution claims to have against you in evidence. In fact, we are ready to protect your riding privilege as well, as we have recently done in the successful case result of People v. T.W.
Our client was arrested in Jefferson County and charged with driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while ability impaired (DWAI). According to police statements, our client was riding their motorcycle while intoxicated, causing a crash. When arrested, our client allegedly had slurred speech, strong smell of alcohol on their breath, and bloodshot, watery eyes. All of these signs typically indicate intoxication to some extent.
Smartly, our client knew about their rights during an arrest and refused to submit to any optional impairment testing. Field sobriety tests are notorious for leaning heavily in the direction of the police, providing them plenty of evidence to justify an arrest and rarely doing otherwise. Optional sobriety tests can be refused without immediate legal consequence. Yet, it is worth noting that mandatory chemical testing cannot be refused without an immediate license revocation.
In court, we argued that our client was not impaired, certainly not to an extent that would make riding dangerous and a DUI charge justified. The examination of the evidence collected against our client was too flimsy to be held up confidently by the prosecution. We confidently pushed for the fact that our client was not impaired, and the case ended with an acquittal for all charges. A resounding success our law firm proudly celebrates!
