Practice Area: OUI
Outcome: Not Guilty
Salem District Court
Client was stopped in a motel parking lot after being followed in by another vehicle. The other driver told police that Client almost hit her head-on while traveling on Garden Street in Danvers.
The officer then approached Client and had conversation with her, noting an odor of alcohol and glassy eyes. Client was asked to step from vehicle to perform FSTs. While getting out, Client was told to put out cigarette she was smoking. She tossed it on the ground and nearly fell over while trying to step on it. Client then failed several tests. Attorney Seed was able to cross examine the other driver as well as the two officers who were involved in the matter. Attorney Seed was able to convince the jury that Client was in fact, not under the influence that night and Client was found Not Guilty after 10 minutes of jury deliberations.
