Case Conclusion Date: December 17, 2014
Practice Area: DUI / DWI
Outcome: FINDING OF NOT GUILTY AFTER TRIAL
Description: Daley Center Courthouse (Case # 38219547/48/49/50)
Our client was accused of driving under the influence of alcohol after a state trooper smelled alcohol on his breath while investigating an accident. On cross-examination the trooper admitted that he could not tell how much our client had to drink merely by the smell of alcohol. In the closing argument, we noted that the state failed to elicit evidence of where our client was prior to being stopped and how much he had to drink. The Judge found our client not guilty of DUI after a bench trial.
