DUI Dismissed Won DMV with a Refusal Allegation 2/2022

First Time DUI with a 0.13% Breath Test - Charges Reduced, Saved Driver License . . . and more!

May 2015

Alameda County Paramedics responded to a call of a person unconscious in a motor vehicle stopped in the middle of the roadway.  Upon arriving on the scene, they found E.M., who is studying to be a medical professional, asleep in the middle of the roadway, with the car engine running. Police arrived on the scene and – after administering Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) and having the suspect voluntarily blow into a Preliminary Alcohol Screening (PAS) device), placed E.M. under arrest. At the jail, E.M. chose to take a breath test, which showed a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.11%.

I got the charges significantly reduced, thus avoiding any potential ramifications with both E.M.'s studies and any future state license. Additionally, I won the Administrative Per Se hearing, keeping E.M.'s driving privilege intact.
