My client was arrested for DWI in Austin, Texas by an officer with the Austin Police Department. The officer reported that my client was stopped because he went straight in a left turn only lane.
My client REFUSED THE BREATH TEST AND REFUSED THE STANDARDIZED FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS (SFSTs). (This was not his first arrest for DWI)
The officer reported that my client had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath and his eyes were glassy. The officer said my client admitted to have been at â€œa bunch of clubs on 6th Street.â€
We took the case to court and let the State know we were going to fight the case. Eventually, the prosecutor agreed to DISMISS THE DWI and my client plead to a Non-DWI charge with a small fine. We were also able to get deferred adjudication on the charge. What this means is that we will be able to â€œSealâ€ the entire incident from nearly all future employers.
