DWI reduced to Careless and Imprudent Driving

Client charged with DWI after allegedly failing all field sobriety tests, vomiting, and blowing over the legal limit. We prevailed at the administrative hearing by showing that the officer failed to check the client’s mouth after the client vomited, rendering the breath test result invalid. We were also able to show that the officer had our client perform the field sobriety tests in a mini skirt and 6 inch heels in freezing weather and on an uneven surface, thus rendering the results unreliable. After negotiations, the prosecutor agreed to ammend the DWI charge to carless and imprudent driving with a fine.
