Case: City v. MC

Case: City v. MC, Jurisdictional Argument, .14 Breath, Dismissal Agreement
Facts: Client was stopped for running a red light by a municipal police officer at 1:34 A.M. Once pulled over, client admitted to having just left a bar and having drank alcohol.  Client “failed” the administered field sobriety tests and was arrested for DUI.  Client registered .14g/210L on the approved Alabama breath test.
Outcome: Birmingham Alabama DUI Criminal Defense Lawyer Whitney Polson investigated the case and learned that the municipal officer was outside of his jurisdiction and therefore, the stop for the traffic violation was illegal.  Mr. Polson used this to successfully negotiate for both charges to be dismissed.
