Driver with .152% BAC wins license case

A client in the St. Louis area was seen by law enforcement allegedly speeding off of a parking lot at 3:30 a.m.   Officer conducts a traffic stop and describes the driver as having a strong odor of alcohol coming from his person and breath.  The Officer also observed watery, glassy and staring eyes.  The driver submits to field sobriety tests and officer reports that the driver failed the horizontal gaze nystagmus test, the walk-and-turn test and the one leg stand test.  The driver is subsequently arrested for DWI and agrees to take breath test which indicates a blood alcohol content of 0.152% (almost twice the legal limit).  At the conclusion of the trial, a Ward & Associates attorney was able to show that the breath test results were unreliable, therefore inadmissible, resulting in the suspension of the driver’s license to be lifted.

Winning a case such as this is not an easy task but is certainly possible if your attorney has the knowledge and is willing to do the work to win.
