Holly's Story (State of Washington v. Holly)
Outcome: King County DUI with .149 reduced to Reckless Driving - No Jail.
According to the police report Holly, a diligent worker for a large and strong local business involved in the fashion industry, was involved in an accident on Interstate 520. She refused to perform field sobriety tests but displayed many signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication, according to the officer. Holly was arrested by the Washington State Patrol and taken to the Clyde Hill Police Station for a breath test, which measured results of .146 and .149. The State of Washington charged Holly with DUI.
Holly left a work function one night after having a few drinks. Apparently, the drinks were stronger than Holly anticipated and she got into a car accident. When the police came, they began to interrogate Holly over and over again. Holly was so scared that she claimed that she was not driving. We were able to help Holly by making several motions based on police misconduct. As a result of the motions, we were able to obtain a good offer for Holly - a plea deal to reckless driving with no jail.
