Case Conclusion Date: December 13, 2017
Practice Area: DUI
Outcome: Finding of Not Guilty
Description: Lake County/Waukegan (Case # 16 DT 96)
My client who has an out-of-state Commercial Driver’s License was investigated and charged for DUI after being stopped for speeding. The case was tried before a judge of December 13, 2017 and the Defendant was found not guilty of DUI. It was a very close case and the squad car video reflected some evidence of potential impairment. However the trial judge reflected carefully on the evidence against my client and the evidence in favor of my client and entered a well-reasoned decision that there was reasonable doubt as to whether my client was operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
