STATE v. J.K.
Maximum Sentence: 364 days jail, $2,000.00 fine, 90 day loss of license
Mandatory Minimum Sentence: $500 fine and 90 day loss of license
Synopsis: Client was stopped for a tail light out. Client admitted to consuming alcohol and based on the information at hand, the client was asked to submit to field sobriety tests. Client ultimately was arrested and blew a .11% on the Intoxilyzer. A motion to suppress all evidence obtained from the time the client stepped out to perform field sobriety tests was submitted and a hearing date was set by the court.
Result: Client pled guilty to Driving to Endanger and the OUI was dismissed prior to hearing. The DTE result was based largely on the strength of the motion to suppress previously filed with the court.
