Case: Gross Misdemeanor DWI
Attorney: Mike Brandt
Result: Mike’s client was charged with two counts of Gross Misdemeanor DWI, his driver’s license was revoked for 1 year, and his license plates were impounded. In the license revocation case, Mike challenged the stop of his client’s car by arguing there was no reasonable, articulable suspicion of criminal conduct justifying the stop. The judge agreed with Mike and reinstated his client’s driving privileges.
In the criminal case, Mike argued that there was no basis to stop his client’s vehicle or to require the client to perform field sobriety tests. The judge also agreed with Mike in that case and suppressed all the evidence, which resulted in the judge dismissing all charges.
