(Apache Junction Justice Court No. 2002-3418CR): Mr. W. was stopped by an officer who claimed someone had called in and said his vehicle had crossed the middle line. He was then arrested and taken to a station, where he attempted to provide a breath sample two times. The officer stated that his breath machine was “broken” and that, “I don’t want to drive to Florence.” Due to the problems with Discovery and the officer, the court dismissed the case shortly after the filing of our Notice of Appearance and Request for Discovery.
State vs. Mr. K. (DMC No. 9940) (Apache Junction Justice Court No. TR2010-06937): Mr. K. was 62 years old and had a bad heart. He was seen making a sharp turn and then was paced travelling 48 m.p.h. in a 35 m.p.h. zone. He was also taking some medication for his heart. Mr. K. had a commercial driver’s license and an Extreme DUI would cost him that license if he were to be convicted. When he was taken to the station he provided a breath sample of .186 breath alcohol content. Due to his health situation, we were able to convince the prosecutor that they would have difficulty prevailing at trial and they extended an offer to a regular DUI with 1 day in jail, which saved Mr. K’s drivers license.
