Case Conclusion Date: June 9, 2014
Practice Area: DUI / DWI
Outcome: NOT GUILTY AFTER TRIAL
Description: Rolling Meadows Courthouse (Case # YB-092-312)
The client was stopped for swerving out of her lane. The arresting officer smelled alcohol and noted slurred speech. The client subsequently failed her field sobriety tests. Our office argued that the field sobriety tests were not properly administered due to our client wearing heels that exceeded two inches in length. Our office further argued that our client appeared mentally attentive and coherent. The Judge found that the State failed to meet its burden and entered a finding of not guilty on the DUI charge.
