State v. AM


Driving While Intoxicated (DWI/DUI) and Implied Consent License Revocation


DWI Charges Dismissed and License Revocation Rescinded (License Reinstated)

A.M. came to London Defense at a very difficult time in his life. He had been arrested for DWI, but was adamant he was innocent. A blood test showed the presence of 2 Schedule I/II controlled substances (drugs) in his blood. We filed a motion to dismiss the criminal charges and a motion to challenge the Implied Consent Driver’s License Revocation.
We gathered AM’s medical records and we were able to show all of the medications in his blood were prescribed medications. However, the prosecution still refused to dismiss arguing that, even if the medications were prescribed, AM appeared intoxicated. We scheduled a Jury Trial in the criminal case and a contested hearing in the Implied Consent (license revocation) matter. Ultimately, AM’s courage and fortitude was rewarded. On the eve of trial, the prosecution dismissed the charges of DWI. Ultimately, his license revocation was lifted as well.
