2nd DUI & Driving While License Suspended – Charges Dropped


State v. J.A. ; 562010CT000209 (St. Lucie County)


DUI and Criminal Traffic

Arresting Agency

St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office


Charges Dropped

Our client was facing his 2nd DUI and a Driving While License Suspended charge. The State’s offer was 90 days in jail, followed by probation and a 5 year drivers license suspension. You might say there was a lot at stake here. The officer testified at the DMV hearing that he pulled our client over because he swerved outside of the lane markers on two separate occasions, not endangering any other traffic. The defense hired an investigator to complete a detailed poster board size diagram of the scene, with all lane markers accurately depicted. We argued a motion to suppress the traffic stop in front of Judge Barnes.  Our Motion to Suppress was granted and charges were dropped.
