Client R.R. was a young law student who made a potential life altering mistake by driving home from a party at a friend’s house. The law student was found to have a blood alcohol content of a .13 in addition to having an open bottle of alcohol in the car and marijuana. Due to the numerous factors negative factors involved in the case, the Nassau County District Attorney’s office refused to offer the client a reduced plea deal. Therefore, NY DWI attorney Richard Hochhauser moved the court to conduct a suppression hearing. At the hearing, the police officer testified that he pulled the vehicle over for speeding, and estimated that the vehicle was going 50 miles per hour. During cross examination, Attorney Hochhauser got the officer to admit that he was never trained in estimating speeds while his own vehicle was also in motion, as was the case here. Thus, based on Attorney Hochhauser’s arguments, the Court found that the Officer was not credible in estimating the Defendant’s speed, and thus the Officer had no basis to pull her over. As such, all of the evidenced in the case was suppressed as “fruit of the poisonous tree” and the entire case was dismissed. As a law student, Client R.R. is now able to start her career with a clean record.
