Attorney Successfully Challenges DWI Arrest

Roberts Law Group, PLLC, secured dismissal of multiple criminal charges including DWI, child abuse and reckless driving to endanger.

(FAIRMONT, NC) A criminal defense attorney from Roberts Law Group recently represented a client facing a combination of charges, including driving while impaired (DWI), child abuse, reckless driving to endanger and speeding twenty-one miles an hour over the speed limit. Using knowledge of the law and experience in DWI cases, the attorney was able to obtain the best possible result in this case: dismissal of the DWI charge, dismissal of the child abuse charge and dismissal of the reckless driving to endanger charge. The speeding charge was reduced to nine miles per hour over the speed limit, resulting in no effect to the client's insurance rates.

The client was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed on the interstate, according to law enforcement. The client was pulled over and arrested for DWI. In addition to the impaired driving charge, the client was also cited for reckless driving and child abuse. The reckless driving charge was based on the alleged high rate of speed and the child abuse charge was based on a minor being present in the vehicle at the time of the DWI arrest.

Based on the attorney's experience successfully handling many prior DWI cases, the impaired driving defense lawyer determined that the best DWI defense strategy for this case would involve challenging the arrest. The Wilmington criminal lawyer argued to the Assistant District Attorney (ADA) that there was insufficient probable cause present in the case to allow his client to be legally arrested for DWI.

The ADA reviewed the facts of the traffic stop and subsequent driving while impaired arrest with the defense lawyer from Roberts Law Group and the arresting officer. Upon completion of this review, the ADA agreed that the officer lacked probable cause for the arrest. At trial, the ADA offered no evidence as to the DWI and child abuse charges and the defense lawyer's request for a dismissal was granted by the judge. The ADA then agreed to dismiss the reckless driving charge and reduce the speeding ticket to nine over the speed limit.
