Nov 15, 2012 Case: 11-020613MM10A Judge Solomon

The defendant was in a parking lot playing loud music with the windows down. In addition, the defendant was not wearing his seatbelt. When the officer approached the vehicle, the defendant started to back-up and drive away. After several commands, the defendant stopped the vehicle. The officer observed a strong odor of alcohol, bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a flushed face. Upon exiting the car, the officer noticed that the defendant was unsteady on his feet. The defendant admitted to taking Xanax as well. The defendant refused all testing and was arrested for DUI.

Parks & Braxton filed a motion to suppress based on an unlawful stop. First, the statute dealing with loud music was declared unconstitutional. At the hearing, the officer testified that he was unaware at the time that the law was declared unconstitutional. The State argued that the officer could rely on a "good faith exception" despite the fact that the law was no longer valid. Parks & Braxton argued that since the DCA court had declared the law unconstitutional and published the case, the officer could no longer claim that he had a "good faith" basis to believe the law was still valid. In addition, Parks & Braxton got the officer to testify that he did not see the seatbelt violation until after he ordered the defendant to stop.

The motion was Granted. The DUI was DISMISSED.

Oct 2, 2012 Case: 2011-CT-025550AXXX (JURY TRIAL) Judge Damico

The defendant was stopped by the police after being observed weaving back and forth within his lane and hitting lane markers for nearly three minutes by the State Trooper. He was also speeding. The entire driving pattern for the whole time was captured on video tape. Once stopped, after not even immediately pulling over, the trooper noticed an odor of alcohol, slurred speech, and bloodshot eyes. The officer also noticed a 24 ounce beer can in the car which was cold to the touch. The defendant performed the field sobriety tests at the request of the officer which were also video taped. For example , on the walk and turn test, instead of taking the required nine steps up and back down the line, the defendant took a total of 36 steps, started to early, and did not touch heel to toe. On the finger to nose, he never touched the tip of his nose on all six attempts. Furthermore, on the alphabet test, he said the same letter on two separate occasions. During the car ride, which was also video taped, one could hear the defendant's slurred speech as he would not stop talking. After his arrest for DUI, he refused the breath test.

At jury trial, Parks & Braxton argued that a DUI investigation goes beyond a driving pattern and the ability to speak.

The Jury found the defendant Not Guilty.

The defendant was then detained until a DUI unit arrived. The defendant then performed the roadside tests on video. He failed them all as he looked highly intoxicated and then was arrested for DUI. After his arrest for DUI, he refused the breath test. He was also charged with a second refusal.

Parks & Braxton filed a pre-trial motion to suppress. In our motion, we alleged that the defendant could not move over as another car was blocking him from doing so and he did slow down in his lane of travel as required. We also alleged that the officer's motioning to the defendant to roll his window down and the taking of his keys were seizures. It should be noted that the officer was impeached at the motion hearing based on his pre-trial deposition whereby he previously stated that he never smelled any alcohol. The defendant also testified at the motion hearing in total contradiction to the officer. For example, he testified that he ended up farther back from the patrol car and never screeched his tires.

The Judge Granted the Motion to Suppress, threw out all the evidence, and the DUI and Refusal charges were Dismissed.
