PEOPLE V. B.S.
Our client was operating a Jetski out near Alexandria Bay when he was stopped for speeding. Our client had a criminal record as well as a current order of protection against him. He was coming back from a party when he was stopped. These factors aside, our attorneys pointed out the weaknesses in the prosecutions’ case. The reason for the stop was suspect (supposed speeding), and Field Sobriety Tests were conducted using two moving boats. Despite a BAC of .23 our client was offered and accepted a plea to one count of BWAI in full satisfaction. Our client ended up saving a lot of money in fines and surcharges and ended up with a violation despite having a BAC almost three times the limit.
