“Not Guilty” Verdict On All Drinking Driving Charges In Nassau County
October 14, 2019
Our client was acquitted of all charges after a trial involving several days of testimony. She was arrested for driving while intoxicated after New York State Troopers responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident. Addabbo and Greenberg attorney Caitlin Quvus successfully demonstrated that the other driver caused the accident when he rear-ended our client. Further, Ms. Quvus was able to show that after the other driver offered our client cash to walk away from the scene, our client called 911 to request police assistance. Ms. Quvus’ detailed cross-examination of both Troopers established that the Troopers’ testimony concerning their observations of the smell of alcohol on our client’s breath, that she had bloodshot, watery eyes and was unsteady on her feet, was flawed. Ms. Quvus successfully argued that despite the client’s refusal to submit to a breath test, there was an innocent explanation for the refusal that was not indicative of intoxication or impairment. Ms. Quvus’ ability to expose the Troopers’ flawed testimony, combined with our demonstration of an innocent explanation for the refusal of the breath test, showed that the client was neither intoxicated nor impaired by alcohol, and she was found “not guilty” of all charges.
