Third Offense Felony Operating Under The Influence (OUI) Charges Dismissed

I successfully negotiated the dismissal of a third offense felony operating under the influence charge for a plea to a class e misdemeanor operating beyond license condition or restriction.  In this matter there was a significant delay between the stop of my clients motor vehicle and the blood alcohol content test administered by the officer.  Further, the officer failed to observe the 15 minute wait period prior to administering the test to my client.  I retained the services of an expert witness who’s  report helped me convinced the district attorney’s office that the blood alcohol content test evidence would most likely not be admissible at trial.  The matter was then resolved by agreement. In this matter my client also avoided a six year driver’s license suspension as a result of this arrangement and our previous victory at the department of motor vehicles hearing related to this matter.
