The Defendant crashed her vehicle into another car and fled the scene. The other motorist who she struck followed her. He managed to stop her car and took her keys away from her. When the Chicago Police arrived, the Defendant was confused and disoriented. She failed all the field sobriety tests and admitted to consuming alcohol before driving. She was arrested and refused the breathalyzer at the police station. Because she refused, her license was to be suspended for 1 year. I filed the paperwork with the court to have a hearing on her license suspension. At the hearing, I went through numerous questions with the officer on the timing of events that evening. I proved that it was impossible to have read my client her “warning to motorist” rights at the time that he alleged he read them to her. The judge agreed with my time analysis and removed her license suspension. No suspension took effect at all!Result: License Suspension Removed
