People v. MH

Our client’s initial offer was to plead guilty to a DWI, with a BAC of .27.  This would leave our client with a criminal record for the rest of his life.  We believed there was an issue with the stop, so we pushed forward.  At hearings the officer said he stopped the vehicle because of a welfare check. He admitted there were no traffic infractions and that the stop was based solely on the concern for the wife.  After the hearings, we submitted a memo of law outlining our issues.  In the end, the Judge ruled that this was in fact, a bad stop and suppressed all the evidence and as a result, the case was dismissed.
