Approximately 3 years before ms. S hired our firm, she had been arrested while driving her vehicle. The police gave her a preliminary breath test which revealed no alcohol in her system. When ms. S refused to do field sobriety test’s, they arrested her and searched her vehicle. They found a tylenol bottle which contained various prescription drugs inside. They then charged her with dui drugs and possession of dangerous prescription drugs.
It was later shown that she did not have any impairing quantities of the drugs in her system while she was driving. In addition, she did have prescriptions for all of the medication found in her possession. At that time, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss all charges “in the interest of justice”. However, this arrest still appeared on her record and was causing her problems with employment. She then hired us to have her arrest record cleared by way of a “notation on the record”. We were able to explain to the judge all of the proceeding facts, and he agreed with our motion argument, and issued a “notation of cleared person on the record.” this resulted in cleaning up her arrest record, and that prior arrest no longer appears when employers run background checks regarding ms. S.
