Verifiable Case Result

DUI charges dropped after motion to suppress

State v. DF; 13-CT-2357

Arresting Agency: Fort Pierce Police

Case Summary: Our client was pulled over based on the police officer’s ‘visual estimate’ that our client was exceeding the speed limit. After digging into the particular officer’s personnel file and discovering that he wasn’t qualified to give a visual estimate of speed, we filed a suppression motion. The prosecutor wisely dropped that case thereafter.

Result: Charges dropped.
