"Dianna" was charged with DUI Refusal. At motions, Dan was able to show the judge that Dianna only "refused" the breath test because the arresting officer, after initially allowing her to read the Implied Consent Warnings herself, took them away from her shortly after because he decided she wasn't looking at the right part of the form. In addition to getting the refusal evidence suppressed at the motions hearing, Dan did enough damage to the officer on the stand that he was able to negotiate a 12 month diversion agreement, after which the original DUI charge will be reduced to a traffic infraction.
