Case No.: 06-17048MM10A, Broward County
Allegations: DUI: My client was south on Federal Highway in Broward County. She was driving very slowly, seven to ten mph, and swerving severely into the center lane and almost hitting the sidewalk several times. She smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, and admitted to consuming several glasses of wine over a three-hour period. She had difficulty exiting her vehicle and almost fell before catching herself on the driver's side door. She failed the roadside tests and blew a .181 on the Intoxilyzer breath test machine.
Results: The state offered a reduced charge of reckless driving before I had the opportunity to argue the motion. My client accepted the offer and was not convicted of DUI. She also was able to maintain her driving privilege.
