Rochester, Michigan DUI
Joe's client was arrested and charged with DUI after she had been found asleep behind the wheel (with the engine running) in the parking lot outside a party store.
The police asked her to perform field sobriety tests and to submit to a breath test. She failed the field sobriety tests, refused the breath test, and was arrested. She was charged with DUI when a blood test revealed a BAC of 0.22.
Joe's analysis of the evidence revealed that there was some doubt as to who had actually driven the vehicle to the party store. After investigating this detail more closely, Joe was able to find a witness whose testimony would be favorable to the prosecution.
With a suitably strong case, Joe was able to meet with the prosecutor to discuss a reduction in the charges. After lengthy negotiations, Joe was able to secure a deal.
The charge of DUI was reduced to the non-alcohol offence of Reckless Driving.
