In Virginia, A Defense Attorney Uses Lucidity Argument to Acquit Client

It was one in the morning and a Virginia driver was pulled over for not maintaining
his lane. He did a walk and turn and a one leg stand 
(remember, you don't have to do these field sobriety tests, you can say 
no!). The officer claimed that he failed them and arrested him on 
suspicion of DUI.

As part of the one leg stand, the attorney noted that his client had 
counted clearly, accurately and with a distinct unimpaired voice which 
should not have made the "wobbly" walk he took enough evidence to arrest 
him, as most people would likely be "wobbly" coming home at one in the 
morning. The judge agreed and acquitted his client.

Remember to never drink and drive and never speak to the police without 
an attorney present. If you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, 
Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and 
have been arrested or charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for 
aggressive and experienced legal defense.
