DWI Lawyers Get Blood Test Suppressed Due to The Coercive Tactics of the Police Officer

Phoenix, AZ. April 27, 2010DWI Lawyers from the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor were able to get a blood test suppressed in a case involving a DUI with a prior due to the coercive tactics of the arresting officer.

In the case of State v. Creek (City of Phoenix Court Case No. 3884018) a City of Phoenix judge suppressed the readings of a .136 blood test in a DUI case due to the coercive nature of obtaining the blood.

In the Creek case the defendant was from Texas and was told that he would be booked into jail overnight unless he completely complied with the blood draw, all questions and field sobriety tests. While in the DUI van with two police officers, the defendant stated “I don’t’ want to be any trouble, but I should speak with a lawyer.” The officers gave Creek the “evil eye” and looked at each other. Creek then stated “Never mind, I’ll do what you want.” After the blood was drawn and he answered questions Creed was allowed to take a taxi back to his hotel.

The judge found that the officers clearly infringed on Creek’s 5th Amendment Constitutional right to speak to counsel before answering questions or agreeing to provide a blood sample. Due to the fact that this was a DUI with a prior conviction, Creek was facing a minimum of 120 days in jail, but because of the officers’ improper actions he received zero days in jail and no second conviction.

“The police cannot threaten you with incarceration in order to get you to answer questions and provide blood samples” said Phoenix DWI Lawyer David Michael Cantor. “ Creek’s Constitutional rights were not awarded to him and as a result his case was dismissed.”

DUI Arizona Lawyers Gets DUI Case Dismissed Due to Lack of Probable Cause For Arrest

Phoenix, AZ. April 27, 2010DUI Arizona Lawyers from the Law Office of David Michael Cantor were able to get an entire DUI case dismissed due to lack of probable cause for arrest.

In the case of State v. Hoting (Moon Valley Justice Court Case No: TR2007178414) a judge at the Moon Valley Justice Court heard evidence regarding Hoting’s case involving a .155 breath alcohol content.

Hoting was pulled over by an officer and was not administered any field sobriety tests or a preliminary breath test before being arrested. Hoting was arrested based solely for the reasons that there was an odor of alcohol and because he refused additional field sobriety tests.

“You cannot merely arrest somebody because they smell of alcohol, and because they won’t comply with your every request,” said Phoenix DUI Arizona Lawyer David Michael Cantor.

The Moon Valley Justice Court Judge found that basing the arrest of an individual merely upon the odor of alcohol and refusal to participate in field sobriety tests was not proper. As a result of the fact that there was no additional evidence, such as slurred speech, unsteadiness on one’s feet or other indicators of actual impairment the judge dismissed the case.

DUI Lawyers in AZ Earn Not Guilty Verdict in Reckless Driving Case

Phoenix, AZ. April 27, 2010DUI Lawyers in AZ from the law offices of David Michael Cantor obtained a verdict of not guilty in the case of State v. Stokes, (City of Scottsdale Court Case No. TR2008028574) a reckless driving case.

In Stokes case, the defendant was leaving a school parking lot in which a security guard was directing traffic. As the guard was directing traffic, he stepped in front of Stokes’ vehicle as was bumped by the defendant’s car which was traveling a mere 3 mph. As a result the security guard contacted the police, and due to the fact that Stokes had multiple prior driving violations on his record the officer decided to file a criminal charge.

At trial the judge properly found that there was no heightened risk of substantial physical injury or death as required by statute as a result the judge found that the police had overreacted and that Stokes was not guilty of reckless driving.

“The judge could see that the only reason Stokes was cited for reckless driving was due to his prior traffic violations, and not due to the facts of what occurred in the parking lot,” said DUI Lawyer in AZ David Michael Cantor.
