Goth Boots Are Made For Standing
A former client of mine, SS became a repeat client when he was stopped for following too closely and then arrested for DUI. The DUI officer that responded after the stop captured my client on video and, had SS not been wearing heavy Goth boots, I’m not sure he could have even stood up. As it was, the boots were the only thing that seemed to keep him upright.
After reviewing the reports, speaking wiith the arresting officer and viewing the video, we were pretty much ready to throw in the towel, but I noticed that the officer who had stopped SS hadn’t filed his supplement report detailing the specific observations that caused him to pull SS over. I requested, then demanded the report, only to be told that it couldn’t be located and, at the hearing on the motion to suppress the stop of SS, the officer conceded that, without his report, he had no recollection of this particular stop. The charge was dismissed and SS walked out the front door of the courtroom. In dress shoes.
(Note: I do not approve of driving under the influence. It is dangerous and the law is on the books for a very good reason. However, as your attorney, my job is to represent you and get the best possible result for you, the client.)
