Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. is pleased to announce a recent successful case result obtained by Attorney Hillary Parsons. The case, which took place in Ramsey County, involved a client whose driver’s license was revoked after he was charged with a 4th Degree DWI.
During the case, Attorney Parsons was able to gather evidence that showed the arresting officer did not have sufficient legal basis to request that our client take a preliminary breath test after he was stopped. The officer did not note any indications that our client was impaired or administer any other field sobriety tests. The officer also stated there was no odor of alcohol and that our client did not have bloodshot or watery eyes, slurred speech, or difficulties walking or balancing.
Based on these points, Attorney Parsons was ultimately able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the case. Additionally, she was able to file a successful petition with the Commissioner of Public Safety by challenging our client’s driver’s license revocation on the same issue. Following a contested hearing, the judge agreed with Ms. Parsons that the arresting officer had no valid reason to conduct a preliminary breath test and that he subjected our client to an unlawful search and seizure. Our client’s driving privileges were fully restored.
Successful results such as the one obtained by Attorney Parsons are the result of experienced lawyers who not only understand criminal law, but also go above and beyond in protecting the rights of clients during all facets of their case, including both criminal matters and issues pertaining to their driver’s licenses.
