Why Going To Trial May Pay Off
Funny things start happening when a lawyer pushes a DUI case to trial. Prosecutors get a bit flustered. Judges may look at you and ask why. In many cases they make comments about how this is a waste of time. Well today a similar thing happened and the State pushed for a trial while offering plea deals left and right. Then it happened. The case was called for a third time that morning before the Judge and the prosecutor said “Your Honor we cannot meet our burden….” The Judge dismissed the case. After repeatedly telling me why I should not take this case to trial my client wins because the state did not have enough evidence. Amazing what hiring a lawyer and listening to him/ her will do, because in this case my client wanted to plea months ago. I explained to him the issues and he agreed trial was the best option. Today he confirmed what I told him, he did not deserve a DUI conviction.
