January 2012

Al was arrested for DUI and Reckless Driving after an officer claimed he drove recklessly at excessive speeds in an attempt to avoid seizure and exhibited signs of impairment following Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs).  After pointing out several evidentiary issues in the officer's report, Dan negotiated with the prosecutor to allow Al reduce the DUI to Negligent Driving and dismiss the Reckless Driving charge. He further persuaded the prosecutor to allow Al to enter a “pre-trial diversion” on the reduced charge for one year, after which the charge was amended to a traffic infraction.
