STATE v. T.R.
Maximum Penalty: 364 days jail, 90 day loss of license, $2,000.00 fine
Mandatory Minimum Penalty: Penalty: 364 days jail, 90 day loss of license, $500.00 fine
Summary: Client was stopped for having an expired registration. Client was unfamiliar with the vehicle she was driving as it was her mother's car. Officer asked client to perform field sobriety tests even though there was a complete lack of suspicious driving behavior. Client performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested for OUI. Client became extremely hostile at the police station and eventually blew a .13% BrAC.
Result: Immediately prior to the hearing set for a motion to suppress evidence an agreement between myself and the DA was reached for a dismissal of the OUI with a plea to Driving to Endanger for a fine of $600.00 and a suspension of 30 days (concurrent with the BMV suspension). The client was immensely pleased.
