We were able to get Amanda’s charges reduced to reckless driving despite her breath test results of a .121 which is almost double the legal limit.
Amanda was already stressed by the death of her brother, and an impending trial made her situation worse. She was scared of being convicted and having to miss out on being there for her family.
Amanda was driving in Pembroke Pines when she was pulled over for Driving Under the Influence. Amanda’s brother had just died, so she was crying and was disheveled when the cops questioned her. The Pembroke Pines Police Department did not use body camera video or video in their cop cars at the time, so the only video they had was from the Breath Alcohol Testing Facility. When they arrived they gave her a breath test, in which she blew a 0.121. They started to record Amanda five minutes after the breath test, in which she did not slur her speech and was able to do the field sobriety exercises. Despite how good she looked on the video, the police arrested her for Driving Under the Influence.
We used the video of her field sobriety test video to our advantage when deposing the police officers that arrested Amanda. They told us that she had a minimal driving pattern, and that she looked good on video. At the trial the jury could not see the breath test video, so we had to prove that Amanda did everything she could to get better after the incident. Amanda took our advice and went to DUI school almost immediately and acted professionally when talking to the cops and breath test technicians.
