Galveston County DWI DUI Lawyers CASE RESULT – STATE OF TEXAS VS L.C. – CLIENT CHARGED WITH DWI.
RESULT: CASE DISMISSED.
L.C. was driving one day, allegedly under the influence of alcohol.
L.C. was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated. The officer did not request field sobriety tests or a breath test at the scene.
L.C. was taken to the police station where he allegedly performed poorly on field sobriety tests and allegedly provided a breath test that was approximately three times the legal limit.
L.C. was charged with DWI with a breath concentration greater than .15, which was a Class A Misdemeanor in Texas bearing punishment of up to one year in the county jail and up to a $4,000 fine.
L.C. bonded out and immediately called our office for representation. We were hired on the case and immediately got to work. We requested videos from the police department within a week of L.C.’s arrest, but the police department did not produce them. We went to court for almost an entire year, and the ADA could not get the videos. We later found out that, despite our office’s timely request for production, the videos were destroyed by the police department.
We argued that L.C.’s constitutional rights were violated because of the police department’s failure to preserve and produce the videos, especially considering the fact that they received notice of our office’s request for preservation and production within a week of L.C.’s arrest.
Through our aggressive representation of L.C. we were successful in having
L.C. served no jail time, does not have a DWI conviction, his driver’s license was not suspended, he did no probation, and he did no community service. L.C. never had to sit for a trial.
