Notes: 57 year old, male client was stopped for speeding 69/55 mph zone.  Officer claimed to have smelled alcohol coming from client’s breath and informed him that he swerved out of his lane at open point. Client admitted to consuming a few shots less than one hour prior to the stop.  Field sobriety tests were curtailed due to Client’s “bad back”.  He was cited with DUI (less safe), Speeding 69/55, Failure to Maintain Lane and Driver to Exercise Due Care.  Following negotiations, the solicitor agreed to amend the DUI to a Reckless driving (he keeps his license) and a fine on the speeding; all other charges were dismissed.  No probation, no community service, no Risk reduction classes, no random drug screening and testing.
