Lansing, Michigan DUI
Joe's client was pulled over by the police for running a red light. He was asked to perform field sobriety tests and was then given a breath test. When the breath test revealed a BAC of 0.10, Joe's client was arrested and charged with DUI.
As part of his investigation, Joe routinely requests the police video tape of the arrest. While analyzing this tape, Joe was able to determine that his client may not have actually run the red light as the police maintained.
The doubt raised by the tape proved helpful during the lengthy negotiations that took place with the prosecutor, and Joe was able to secure a deal.
The charge of DUI was reduced to the non-alcohol offence of Reckless Driving.
