DUI with Refusal Allegation

Jeanette D. was pulled over by the CHP as she exited a tricky portion of the 101 freeway in the San Fernando Valley. Despite performing well on all FST’s Jeanette was arrested for DUI. It was also alleged that she refused to submit to a chemical test, as is required under California law.

At trial, it became apparent that the arresting officers had exaggerated Jeanette’s performance on the FST’s. The defense was also able to show that officers deliberately lied about Jeanette refusing to submit to a chemical test.

The jury acquitted Jeanette D. of all charges.
