Case No.: 06-006643TCA04, Palm Beach County
Allegations: DUI with personal injury. My client ran a stop sign and struck a motorcyclist who sustained minor injuries. According to the arresting officer who admitted he had no training, education, or experience administering road-side sobriety tests to 69 year-old men, my client was so impaired that he could not stand without assistance, and his performance on the roadside tests was extremely poor. However, he looked sober on video and blew a .07 on an Intoxilyzer Breath Machine.
Results: Hung Jury. No Conviction. The panel, all women, was split down the middle…three guilty, three not guilty. We shall defend the case again.
