“Not Guilty” Verdict On Drinking And Driving Charge
After a trial that lasted several days, a Queens County Judge acquitted our client of all drinking driving charges. Our client was initially stopped for speeding on the Grand Central Parkway and was asked to step out of the vehicle after the Officer allegedly smelled an odor of alcohol. Addabbo and Greenberg Criminal Defense Attorney Caitlin Quvus successfully utilized a video obtained from the Officer’s dashcam to cross-examine the Officer and elicit conflicting testimony. Further,, Ms. Quvus was able to extract testimony from the Intoxicated Driver Testing Unit Technician that contradicted the first Officer’s testimony. Detailed cross-examination of both Officers established that neither Officer was a credible witness. Ms. Quvus successfully argued that despite a breath test reading that showed the client’s blood alcohol content to be above the legal limit, the inconsistent and contradictory testimony by the Officers combined with the client’s performance on the physical coordination tests showed that she was not impaired by alcohol and she was found “not guilty” of all drinking driving charges.
