Case No.: 412719-X, Dade County
Allegations: DUI. My client was pulled over by Officer Jerry Davenport of the Miami Dade Police Department for a broken tail light. He smelled alcohol on my client's breath, noticed his eyes to be blood-shot, his face to be flushed and his speech to be slurred. He said my client failed five field sobriety tests, admitted to having five drinks and blew a .091 and .076 on the Intoxilyzer breath test machine.
Results: I offered the state the opportunity to reduce the charges to reckless driving; however, they were adamant that they could get a conviction. The jury was out deliberating for thirty minutes before coming back with a unanimous “not-guilty” verdict. While I was walking out of the courthouse, one of the jurors approached me and asked me for my business card. He told me that they had a verdict immediately, but stayed in the jury room so it appeared that they actually had to deliberate. Defended by Lloyd H. Golburgh, Esq.
