Case Study: Grandmother Acquitted of DWI Charges After Dash Camera Footage Reveals Truth

The Incident: DWI acquittal

A grandmother enjoyed a single margarita with her friend at a popular local restaurant. Upon leaving, she was followed by an officer who boasted about leading his department in DWI arrests. The officer pulled her over for allegedly traveling a few miles per hour over the speed limit.

THE LEGAL BATTLE

Challenging Questionable Police Conduct: The Role of Evidence

The officer claimed that the grandmother appeared unsteady on her feet and needed to use her vehicle for support. He subjected her to several roadside tests and four breath tests, all of which he alleged she failed. Notably, the breath test was administered on a machine that the officer maintained himself.

Utilizing Dash Camera Footage: Revealing the Truth

Attorneys with the James Law Group meticulously reviewed the dash camera footage from the traffic stop. During cross-examination, they skillfully used this footage to demonstrate discrepancies between the officer’s account and what actually occurred.

Summary of DWI Acquittal

A grandmother had a single margarita with her friend at a popular local restaurant. An officer who bragged about leading his department in DWI arrests began following her as soon as she left the restaurant. He pulled her over for traveling a few miles per hour over the speed limit.

He claimed that the grandmother was unsteady when she walked and needed to use the vehicle to help support herself. After several roadside tests, the officer made her take four breath tests. According to the officer, she failed all the tests he gave her, including the breath test (given on a machine that he maintained himself).

Through skilled use of the dash camera footage of the stop during cross-examination, attorneys with the James Law Group were able to show the jury that what the officer was telling them wasn’t what happened. After a short deliberation, the jury returned a not guilty verdict.
