Law Enforcement agencies always beef up DWI patrols during Holidays. Be Careful! Know your rights! You have the right to refuse all field sobriety tests and breath/blood tests. If you get arrested, call the DWI GUY immediately.
In the 216th District Court of Bandera County, Texas, the DWI Guy wins a Motion to Supress in State v. Corbit and as a result the second felony DWI of my client was dismissed. The DWI guy challenged the officer’s right to stop his client’s vehicle for reasonable suspicion. The Court ruled the officer had no reasonable suspicion to stop he vehicle for driving on the improved shoulder of the roadway. CASE DISMISSED. Never give up the fight!
This time of year all of law enforcement are on high alert and usually add extra patrols to search for intoxicated drivers. BE CAREFUL! The DWI GUY wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
I recently represented 2 clients in the Kerr County Court at Law. One client had a DWI and the other client a DWI along with several drug charges. On the first client, the Officer alleged my client failed to signal within 100 feet of a turn. The judge ruled after I questioned the officer that the stop was illegal. Next client, the Officer testified my client did not signal at all and was follwoing too closely to another vehicle. I was able to show the Judge under Texas case law a signal was not required when client was in designated turn lane only and the Officer failed to testify as to articualbe facts supporting following another vehicle too closely. Result – both cases won and all evidencee suppressed. Yahoo!
Congratulations go out to my partner, Scott Monroe, on his election to the office of the 198th District Attorney. He will be missed, but he will aslo make a great D.A. Once again, congratulations to Scott Monroe.
If you are attending the Fiesta activities in San Antonio today and this weekend, BEAWARE, because law enforcement in San Antonio are running extra patrol forces to crack down on DWI drivers. Be Safe!
In the Kerr County courts, the prosecutor has the basically the same plea offer for every case. A case is only as good as its facts. If the State has a bad case, should it get the same plea offer as when the State has a good case. The answer is NO. Attorney’s should fight for your rights on every case. A prosecutors job by statute is to see that Justice is done. This does not mean getting a conviction on every case. Hirer an attorney who will fight for your rights.
