Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) – LICENSE SUSPENSION REMOVED

The Barrington  Police Department observed my client weaving within her lane of traffic and then cross over the white striped lane divider. The officer stopped my client and observed her to have an odor of alcohol on her breath, bloodshot and glassy eyes. My client admitted to drinking and then submitted to field sobriety testing. She did the One Leg Stand Walk and Turn Test and the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test (HGN) which the officer indicated she failed all of them. My client then submitted to a portable breath test (PBT) which disclosed an amount of .159% My client was then arrested for DUI and taken back to the Barrington Police Department. At the police station, my client blew a .140% in the breathalyzer. My client was a college student and needed her license. She could not afford to lose her license for six months. We filed a Petition to Rescind Statutory Summary Suspension in order to fight her license suspension in court. Our tactics paid off and the judge ordered her license suspension to be removed!
