Client's DWI Charges Dismissed
Recently the DWI defense attorneys of Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP, successfully argued that the criminal DWI charges filed against their client in the Mamaroneck Village Court in Westchester County, NY should be dismissed.
Under the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law, a driver whose blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08% or higher can be charged with the misdemeanor offense of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). A person's ability to drive a motor vehicle is deemed impaired in their BAC is between .05% and .08%, commonly know as Driving While Ability Impaired ( DWAI).
At arraignment, it was revealed that the client's BAC was .05%. Using their knowledge of the DWI laws, an immediate motion to dismiss the charges was made by Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP. Arguing that the Blood Alcohol Content was proof that the misdemeanor charges should not have been filed and that the client was not legally intoxicated, the charges against the client were dismissed.
