Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) – Not Guilty of DUI after Trial
My client’s vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and violated the lane lines. The Illinois State Police pulled him over. During the initial contact with the police officer, the officer states that the defendant had bloodshot glassy eyes and the smell of alcohol emitting from inside the vehicle and from his breath. After stepping out of the vehicle, my client performed all the Field Sobriety tests and failed them all. Once again, the officer states that there is a strong odor of alcohol coming from my client’s breath. My client was then arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. I went to trial on this DUI to keep it off my client’s record. After hearing all the evidence, the Judge did not believe that my client was Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol. My client was found Not Guilty of DUI.
