Fourth Offense Felony DUI tossed after Wallin’s Cross-Examination

This client was arrested after being pulled over for driving on a rim, which was causing sparks to fly.  The arresting officer claimed that she had an odor of an alcoholic beverage, bloodshot eyes, and needed assistance to walk.  He claimed that she failed three field sobriety tests.  Because this was the Defendant’s fourth DUI, she was looking at a mandatory minimum three years in prison.  Mr. Wallin crossed-examined the arresting officer, pointing out that the Defendant had significant health issues that could have caused her balance problems.  The judge dismissed the case at the close of the prosecution’s evidence, not requiring Mr. Wallin to present any evidence.
