Clifton DUI Charges

Arrested, Charged with DUI in Clifton Court

Charged with DUI clifton best defense lawyers

Attorney needed for a DUI charge in Clifton? You’ve come to the right place.

Travis J. Tormey recently assisted a client accused of driving while under the influence of drugs (DUI) in Clifton, NJ. The client also faced criminal penalties for allegedly being under the influence of drugs. If she was convicted on the DUI charges, the client faced serious consequences: suspension of her license for one year and a possible term of incarceration of six months in the Passaic County Jail. Moreover, the client would be stuck with a criminal conviction on her permanent record.

A Clifton patrol officer pulled over the client’s vehicle after observing the client make an illegal U-turn. The Clifton NJ officer suspected that the client was drunk, so he administered field sobriety tests. After the client allegedly failed the field sobriety tests, she was placed under arrest and charged with a DUI. Law enforcement later administered a breath test, during which the client blew .00 percent BAC on the Alcotest machine. Clifton police also took a urine sample from the client. However, one thing that police failed to do was utilize a drug recognition expert (DRE) to examine the client after the arrest.

The client’s lab results ultimately showed that she had no marijuana or other illegal narcotics in her system; instead, she merely tested positive for cough syrup and allergy medication. Since prosecutors did not have a DRE evaluation to support their claims, Travis Tormey successfully challenged the DUI charges and persuaded prosecutors to dismiss all of the charges, including the criminal charges.
