An attorney for The Weiland Firm, PLC successfully defended a DUI case in a local court this week. The client was charged with an aggravated DUI because his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was a .16. As a result, had the client been convicted, he would have received a significant fine, a mandatory active jail sentence, a twelve month license suspension, and a requirement that he complete the VASAP program.
However, through a complicated Motion to Suppress filed by our attorney we argued that the officer’s reason for initiating a traffic stop on our client was illegal and unconstitutional. The judge agreed with our attorney’s argument and dismissed the case. Therefore, the client did not receive any punishment and his record will remain free of any traffic or criminal conviction related to this charge.
