Virginia DUI Dismissed in Court

VA DUI
A lawyer from The Weiland Firm, PLC recently won a DUI case in a Virginia courtroom

The Law Firm of 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.

On May 9, 2012, an attorney from The Weiland Firm, PLC represented a client charged with a DUI and refusal.  If convicted of the DUI, the client would have received a high fine, a potential jail sentence, suspended license for one year and would have been required to attend the Virginia Alcohol Safety Program (VASAP).  Additionally, if the client had been convicted of the refusal, the client would have lost their license for an additional year with no opportunity to obtain a restricted license. Our attorney was able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the refusal and reduce the the DUI to a reckless driving charge. As a result, the client paid a fine and id not have to attend the VASAP program or have their license suspended for any period of time. In this case, the client was arrested for DUI and taken to the jail to provide a breath sample as required under Virginia’s implied consent law.  Although the client made several attempts to blow into the machine, the client was physically unable to provide a strong enough breath sample to allow for a valid test result.  Because the police officer did not provide the client with the opportunity for a blood test, our attorney was prepared to argue that the police denied the client of an opportunity to obtain exculpatory evidence.
