Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) – License Suspension Removed
My client was driving on Interstate 90 and was speeding and not staying within the lane markers. Once the client pulled over for the officer and began speaking, the officer observed glassy bloodshot eyes and the smell of alcohol emitting from inside the vehicle and from his breath. He refused the breathalyzer test so the Secretary of State was going to suspend his license for 1 year. I filed the paperwork to have a hearing to prevent the license suspension. During the hearing I convinced the judge that there was no basis to arrest my client for driving under the influence of alcohol. The judge agreed with my arguments and removed my client’s license suspension.Therefore, the client’s driver’s license was never suspended!
