June 23, 2015. Client was found beside a car that had left the roadway and struck an embankment. Officer arrived later in the evening and asked client if he had consumed any alcohol. Client stated that he had consumed several beers earlier in the evening. Client did not perform any field sobriety tests due to the fact that he had been in the accident earlier. He was charge with DUI and failure to obey a traffic control device. Client was asked to submit to State administered chemical test of his breath and refused. Due to lack of field sobriety tests and no breath or blood test to indicate client was under the influence, Attorney was able to negotiate a plea where the DUI and failure to obey traffic control device were dismissed. Client entered a plea to reckless driving with no probation and a fine. This case was handled by Bill Hardman.
