The officer ordered R.S. to exit the vehicle and attempted to perform field sobriety tests on him. R.S. was then arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in Galveston County, Texas.
R.S. was booked at the Galveston County jail, bonded out and called our office for representation.
We were hired on the case and immediately got to work. We requested the dashcam videos and audio recordings from police car on the scene. After analyzing R.S.’s story, the officers’ statements, the officer’s actions, and R.S.’s actions, we began poking holes in the state’s DWI case. We saw the weaknesses in the state’s DWI case, and set it for trial.
Before trial, because of our representation, the state offered to reduce the driving while intoxicated (DWI) case to speeding (a class c misdemeanor ticket. We negotiated a deal where R.S. pleaded no contest to the speeding charge and received one day deferred adjudication on the speeding ticket. The case has subsequently been dismissed.
R.S. served no additional jail time, does not have a DWI conviction, , he did no probation, and he did no community service. Additionally, R.S. never had to sit for a trial. R.S. was not convicted of any offense.
