Case No.: 06-007767MM10A, Broward County
Allegations: DUI: my client was asleep in his car adjacent to a park. He had turned the engine off, removed the key from the ignition, and placed it on the passenger seat next to him. He opened the driver's side door, put his feet on the ground, and went to ‘sleep it off.'
Results: not guilty in 28 minutes. Before trial, the prosecutor actually taunted me…she came up to me before jury selection and asked me, “are you really going to try this?” she was convinced she was going to get a conviction. The judge also told me it was a gutsy move to try this case….everyone but the jury expected a conviction.
