Result: All charges dismissed 
 
Client was blue lighted by the Lebanon Police Department after a driver called in indicating impaired driving. Client claimed he had been parked, off the road way located at the 840/I-40 exit. Client was deemed uncooperative and belligerent when he insisted there was nothing wrong with him parking on the side of the interstate. The officer asserted it was a homeland security issue and called in back up. A review of the video tape confirmed that while the client did insist he was doing nothing wrong, he was polite at all times while holding his position that his actions were permissible. The officer is heard on the video tape saying she cannot smell alcohol but he acted lethargic. Upon back up arriving, our client was arrested for DUI on the limited information previously stated. Client was charged with DUI 1st offense and violation of the State's implied consent law. After review of the video tape and investigation into the arresting officer, all charges were dismissed without court cost.

Result:  Client allowed to plead guilty to DUI 2nd and received no jail time for drug possession charges.

Additional Details:  Client was on probation for DUI 2nd offense when arrested in Cannon County for DUI 3rd offense, possession of a schedule IV drug, Xanex and possession of the schedule VI drug, marijuana and possession of drug paraphernnalia.  The client was scheduled for an alcohol and drug assessment and we worked to apply the newly enacted DUI law to the client’s facts. The case was continued for a sufficient amount time to elapse so that a probation violation warrant would not issue based upon our appearance in court. An agreement was reached wherein the client plead guilty to DUI 2nd offense and received zero jail time for the drug offenses. The client was approved for out-patient treatment that will enable him to earn a 20 day of reduction from the 45 days sentence and allowed time to serve the DUI sentence in a DUI center as opposed to jail. The return date was able to be postponed until June of 2015 in order to allow his graduation from school. As a result of our work in this case, the client avoided the minimum mandatory 120 days sentence for DUI third offense, received 20 days credit for outpatient treatment and the remaining jail time to be served after his school was completed.
