Charges Dismissed - Second Offense
Client was reported driving erratically. Cop testified to a "very strong" odor of alcohol, bloodshot and watery eyes, and that client was "very unsteady" on his feet. At a motion hearing, attorney Dunn argued that police did not observe any traffic violations so the stop of client's car and any evidence obtained thereafter should be excluded as fruit of the poisonous tree. The Judge agreed with attorney Dunn and allowed the motion to suppress. As a result, the Commonwealth could not prove its case and the Judge dismissed all charges.
