D.P. was driving one day in Galveston County when he allegedly caused a minor traffic accident. D.P. left his name and insurance information and left the scene. Approximately 45 minutes later police arrived at D.P.’s house, where D.P. was found sleeping. The officers had the audacity to pull D.P. out of bed and demand that he performed field sobriety tests on his front yard.
D.P. allegedly performed poorly on the field sobriety tests, allegedly had difficulty standing, and was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated in Galveston County(“DWI”).
D.P. was charged with DWI, which was a Class B Misdemeanor in Texas bearing punishment of up to six months in the county jail and up to a $2,000 fine.
D.P. bonded out and immediately called our office for representation. We were hired on the case and immediately got to work. We began poking holes in the state’s DWI case and were set to fight it to the end.
We argued a very lengthy Motion to Suppress on the case (a motion wherein we argued that D.P. was illegally arrested), and the judge saw the truth. The judge ruled that there was no probable cause to arrest D.P. Thank you, judge, for seeing the truth and following the law.
Through our aggressive representation of D.P., we were successful in having
D.P. served no jail time, does not have a DWI conviction, his driver’s license was not suspended as a result of the DWI case, he did no probation, and he did no community service. Additionally, D.P. never had to sit for a trial.
