2011 CT 008502 NC – Sarasota County – March 2013
Charge: DUI > .15
Result: Charges Completely Dismissed
Defendant was stopped for equipment violation. Sarasota Sheriff’s department DUI Task Force deputy noted signs of inebriation and asked defendant to perform field sobriety tests, on which the deputy believed he did poorly. At the jail, the defendant blew a .197 and a .194. Attorney Darren Finebloom filed a motion to suppress the evidence, based upon his client’s rights being violated during the stop and arrest. The judge ruled in favor of Finebloom’s motion at hearing, suppressing all evidence gathered in the case, and the State Attorney’s office then dropped all charges against the client.
