Successful Case Examples from Our Attorneys' Closed Files
Perhaps the best decision you'll ever make in life is choosing William C. Head as your DUI defense attorney should you or a loved one ever need to. But of all the DUI defense lawyers, why choose Mr. Head? Take a look at these two cases and see for yourself.
State v. C.M.
A woman in her 50's, dressed up for dinner, went out to enjoy an evening with her supervisor and his wife. They enjoyed two glasses of wine and their meals. The woman, C.M. later had an after dinner cocktail. She was driven 30 miles back to her car where she proceeded to drive home.
C.M. was followed by police for a few seconds where she was pulled over. The police officers improperly administered two field sobriety tests on C.M. by not properly instructing her on how to proceed with the tests.
Mr. Head proved at trial that C.M. was given an inaccurate and insufficient implied consent warning. His argument to the judge was that the method of advising C.M. of her rights was coercive and overbearing. Mr. Head also proved that the officer failed to conduct the field sobriety tests in the "standardized" and approved manner.
Mr. Head further proved that C.M. was dressed in a long skirt and was wearing dress "heels", which made physical dexterity tests more difficult.
After all evidence was heard, the judge found C.M. not guilty of all charges.
State v. P.M.
After working, P.M. went to a tavern to celebrate a co-worker's going away party. He estimated drinking about 3 beers per hour over a 5 hour period. He was later pulled over just before he reached his home.
The police officer told P.M. false information regarding what would happen if he refused the field sobriety tests by stating "nothing". He also did not read P.M. his Miranda rights.
At a pre-trial motion hearing, Mr. Head proved that the officer lacked probable cause to arrest P.M. for DUI. No field sobriety tests supported arrest, nor were there any significant manifestations of P.M. being intoxicated. He was given a fine for speeding and his DUI charge was dropped.
