In May 2014, Maryland DUI attorney David Moyse had an impressive morning as he helped two clients beat their DUI charges and avoid jail time.
In the first case, the prosecuting attorney planned to ask for a month in jail for Moyse’s client’s third DUI. Moyse successfully convinced the Montgomery County District court Judge to dismiss the case in its entirety for failing to provide the Defendant with a “Speedy Trial.” Moyse’s argument was bolstered by the fact that the Defendant had appeared twice in court with Moyse demanding a trial, but both times the Court ran out of time to hear the case.
Ultimately, the client walked out of Court with no fines, no points, and no jail!
In the second case, Moyse’s client was underage, driving over 130 mph on the Beltway, and admitted to consuming some alcohol. Maryland DUI lawyer David Moyse successfully cross-examined the arresting officer into admitting many facts that were damaging to the State’s case.
At the close of evidence, the Defendant was found NOT GUILTY of DUI, DWI, and Fleeing and Eluding. The client still faced hefty fines for driving 130 mph in a public area, but escaped jail time and kept a clean DUI record.
