Bradford County DUI Case Result – Feb. 2019
A Lawtey Police Department officer responded to a call regarding a reckless driver. The officer located the vehicle in question, observed its irregular driving pattern, and consequently initiated a traffic stop. When the officer spoke with the driver, he noticed a strong odor of alcohol and that the driver slurred her speech and had trouble retrieving her license and registration. The officer also noted a half-full bottle of alcohol in the passenger seat, and the driver admitted to having at least two drinks. The officer asked the driver to perform field sobriety exercises, which the driver refused. When asked to provide a breath sample, the driver also refused this request.
The driver hired Meldon Law. Our attorney sent a written formal request highlighting why the driver should be considered for the DUI Deferral Program. Ultimately the driver was approved for participation in the DUI Deferral Program. The driver completed the program successfully, which resulted in a reduction of the DUI charge to a reckless driving charge, and the driver received a withhold of adjudication.
