Mandatory Minimum Penalty: 150 day loss of license; $500.00 fine
Summary: Client was stopped for running a red light and speeding through a high traffic area for pedestrians located near the local university. Client was asked to perform field sobriety tests and according to the officer, performed poorly. Client was arrested and brought to the police station where a breath test was administered. Client blew a .13%.
Result: DA agreed to dismiss the OUI and client pled guilty to Driving to Endanger. One of the main reasons for this decision was that the client was able to supply us with medical records that showed the client had a candida infection, which would account for the high breath test.
