CHARGE: OUI Drugs;
Result: Not guilty; Jury Waived Trial.
The police claimed to have smelled a strong odor of burnt marijuana from the car and observed my client’s car failure to stop at a stop sign. My client admitted to smoking marijuana less than an hour before driving and failed every Field Sobriety Test. At trial, I successfully used established case law to discredit the observations of the officer and my client was not guilty! Also, I was able to keep client from suffering any registry suspension or insurance surcharges for related civil infractions.
