Virginia DUI Dismissed in Court
An attorney from The Weiland Firm, PLC successfully defended a client against a DUI, 1st offense charge in a Virginia courtroom. The Court dismissed the charge that the client was driving under the influence.
The client, whose identity will remain confidential, was stopped by police for weaving within his or her lane and for crossing both the white and yellow road markings. Upon pulling over, police conducted field sobriety tests on the client. The client performed poorly and police arrested him/her on suspicion of driving under the influence. Officers transported the suspect to an area hospital for a blood test.
Analysis of the blood sample showed that two illegal substances were present in the client’s blood stream at the time of the police stop.
In court, the attorney advised the defendant to plead not guilty and the case went to trial. The lawyer was able to successfully argue that a chemical analysis of the accused’s blood was not sufficient in proving that the substances detected in the blood sample impaired his or her ability to drive. The attorney also suggested the possibility that an underlying medical condition may have caused the defendant to drive erratically.
As a result of the arguments posed in trial by the attorney from The Weiland Firm, PLC, the Court found the defendant not guilty of DUI in Virginia.
