DUI Dismissed Won DMV with a Refusal Allegation 2/2022

DUI with 0.10% breath test. Charges reduced; won DMV hearing & saved driver license.

April 2015

In 2012, R.M. was pulled over in Contra Costa Co. because the light over the car's license plate was burned out. The officer proceeded to conduct a series of both Standardized and non-standardized Field Sobriety Tests. Then, when R.M. refused to blow into the handheld Preliminary Alcohol Screening (PAS) device, the officer placed him under arrest. At the police station, R.M. blew into the breath machine, with a reading of 0.10% Blood Alcohol Content, resulting in the District Attorney filing DUI charges.

Although this case took an unusually long time to resolve, I did not give up! Got the charges significantly reduced, and won the client's Administrative Per Se hearing, preventing R.M. from losing his driver license.

Court: Contra Costa County Superior Court
