CASE RESULT – STATE OF TEXAS VS. K.S. – Client Arrested and Charged with DWISecond. RESULT: CASE REDUCED TO OBSTRUCTION OF A HIGHWAY
K.S. was driving home one evening when K.S. was pulled over by a police officer for speeding. The police officer thought K.S. was under the influence, so he called for backup. K.S. was questioned by two officers, who were of the opinion that K.S. was driving under the influence.
The two officers called for backup from a Texas State Trooper. The trooper arrived and performed field sobriety tests on K.S. The trooper believed that, based on his observations, K.S. was under the influence.
K.S. was arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (Second Offense) in Galveston County, Texas. While in custody, K.S. provided a voluntary breath sample that was over the legal limit.
K.S. bonded out of jail and called our office. We immediately got to work.

K.S. never had to go to trial, never saw a jury, and her driver’s license was not suspended.
