Texas v. M.
Texas v. M.R.
Fort Bend County Court of Law No. 3
Client was pulled over for driving with his headlights off and refuses all tests on video. Police say that he is unsteady on his feet, red watery eyes, and a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. After debating for 23 minutes, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office decides to arrest him for DWI. The DA, recognizing their weak case, offer to dismiss the DWI if he will plead guilty to a Class C Open Container ticket and take some classes. Oh yeah, because he had 2 empty beers in his truck. I have to admire the client’s confidence in my ability, because he turned it down and went to trial. It’s what I would’ve done too, but ultimately it has to be the client’s decision. The Judge entered a Judgment of Acquittal after hearing the officer testify in my Motion to Suppress hearing and threw the case out. I sincerely appreciate the client who is willing to stand strong and let me do what I do best, fight!
