Tomeo Sills, LLC recently defended a client who was wrongfully accused of
driving under the influence. On May 5, 2015, our client was arrested by a Connecticut police officer
working DUI Enforcement. The officer’s report greatly exaggerated
the nature of client's driving and performance on
field sobriety tests, which was all captured on video. After being arrested, the client submitted
to a breath test, which returned results well under the legal limit. Rather
than administer a second breath test, the police officer asked the client
to submit to a urine test, which is widely regarded as the most unreliable
of all DUI tests.
Our client had a multitude of medical issues was taking regularly prescribed
medications. The presence of those medications showed up in the urine
screen. The State neglected to perform a confirmatory test on the sample
– of they had, it would have shown the levels of medication in the
client's system. Instead, the State suggested that the client take
the Alcohol Education Program, which would have eventually led to the
dismissal of his charges.
Naturally, the client, who was adamant that he was not under the influence
of a combination of alcohol and prescription medication, balked at this
suggestion. Instead, the client opted to take the case to trial. Several
experts and doctors testified during the trial, and after a week of evidence,
the Jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty in less than 30 minutes.
