Ferndale, Michigan DUI
Joe's client was charged with DUI after having blown 0.18 on a breath test.
Joe, as always, investigated the case thoroughly and reviewed all the evidence. His thoroughness turned up a crucial piece of evidence: the prosecution could not prove the client's BAC at the time he had actually been driving the vehicle.
Although this would not have been enough to secure an acquittal at trial, Joe was able to use it as leverage during his extensive negotiations with the prosecutor. Finally, much to the delight of Joe's client, the prosecutor offered to reduce the DUI charge to the non-alcohol offence of Reckless Driving.
