Recent case result : not guilty on public intoxication
Recently we represented a client charged with public intoxication. The officer could not articulate why he believed that the defendant was intoxicated and how he could cause harm to himself or others which is required in these cases. The officer never gave the defendant a breathalyzer or administered any sobriety tests. Furthermore a witness testified that the defendant had not been drinking. After a brief trial the judge ruled not guilty.
