STATE v. D.K.
Charge: OUI (.14%)
Maximum Penalty: 364 days jail; $2,000.00 fine; 150 day loss of license
Summary: Client was stopped for erratic operation by a vigilant police officer. Client was asked to perform field sobriety tests and appeared to be impaired. As a result, the officer arrested my client and brought him into the station for a breath test. Client blew a .14% BrAC.
Result: We won the case at the BMV as there was an error message on the machine that the officer failed to account for at the hearing. This opened the door for a good resolution of the case and the DA agreed to drop the charge to Driving to Endanger for a fine of $575.00 and a 30 day loss of license. Client was from out of state and the client's home state will not impose a suspension for the DTE conviction. Client, a realtor, was extremely happy with the result.
