Result:  DA agreed to dismiss the OUI Refusal charge due in large part on a failure by the PD to preserve important video evidence that had been previously requested by my Office.  Client pled guilty to Driving to Endanger for a fine of $1,000.00 and a 30 day loss of license.  Client was able to continue to drive back in his/her home state as he/she was never convicted of the OUI.
