Third DUI- BAC .26%
Client was facing his third DUI charge and looking at a one-year state prison sentence because a blood test showed that his BAC was .26%, the highest tier. We filed a pre-trial motion arguing that the police should have obtained a search warrant before taking our client's blood. The Judge agreed.
The result: With the blood alcohol content charge dismissed, our client's potential penalty went from one-year in state prison to ten days in the county jail or house arrest.
