Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

DUI continues to be a heavily prosecuted offense. During the past year we have seen a substantial increase in the number of clients arrested after going through police license checkpoints. DUI is different in many important respects from any other criminal charge. We have helped hundreds of clients charged with DUI obtain dismissals, not-guilty verdicts, or reductions to non-DUI offenses such as reckless driving. This category also include a selection of BUI or boating under the influence case results.
  • Plea for Open Container and Too Fast for Conditi
    DUI Our client was charged with DUI, Driving Too Fast for Conditions and Open Container. After notifying the prosecutor that the case was a trial, the DUI was dismissed in exchange for a plea to Open Container and Driving Too Fast for Conditions.
  • Reduced to Reckless Driving
    DUI, Minor Accident Our client was arrested for DUI after being involved in a minor motor vehicle accident. Although there was no alcohol in their system, the police believed that there was evidence that they were under the influence of prescription medications. The DUI charge was reduced to reckless driving.
  • Reckless Driving
    DUI We represented a member of the military who was stopped for speeding. After the officer learned the man had been drinking the night before he asked him to perform field sobriety tests. The officer made an arrest for DUI after feeling that the tests were “failed”. At the jail, the man voluntarily provided a breath sample registering blood alcohol of 0.13%. After substantial negotiations with the prosecution, the charge was reduced to reckless driving. This will allow our client to remain in the military.
  • Dismissed
    DUI We represented a driver who was stopped outside of Columbia, South Carolina, after "cutting off" a police officer. According to the officer the driver admitted to drinking, and stumbled upon exiting his car. He was then arrested for DUI. After taking the case we learned that the police officer failed to properly preserve the evidence. As a result we were able to negotiate a resolution to an ordinary traffic ticket for an improper lane change. The DUI was dismissed and removed from our client's record.
  • Reckless Driving
    DUI, Checkpoint James R. Snell, Jr., represented a client who had been arrested by police officers in a city adjacent to Columbia, South Carolina. The client was charged with DUI after going through a police checkpoint and then telling the police that he had been drinking beer. Initially the prosecutor said “no offer” and refused to reduce the charge. After evaluating the case and alerting the prosecutor to several potential legal issues, they relented and extended an offer of reckless driving. As a result our client’s DUI arrest record is erased, and there is no requirement to complete ADSAP or install an ignition interlock device.
  • Reduced to Speeding
    DUI James Snell represented a young man who was stopped by a police officer after leaving a bar in the early morning hours. A review of the evidence showed that there were significant weaknesses in the facts alleged by the police officer to justify his assumption of impairment. After bringing these issues up to the prosecution, the DUI was ultimately reduced to a speeding ticket. As a result there is no DUI conviction, no ADSAP, no SR-22 insurance, no interlock requirement and no license suspension.

  • Speeding Ticket

The results came back at 0.22 BAC, triggering the highest level of DUI 1 st in South Carolina including the new Emma's Law penalties. James Snell filed specific court motions to challenge the admissibility of the blood test results. On the day of trial the prosecution agreed to voluntarily dismiss the DUI, and instead allow our client to plead guilty to a minimum level speeding offense (2 points and an $81 fine).
  • Reduced to Reckless Driving

This is a non-traffic related offense, meaning that although our client had to pay a fine, his car insurance rates and license points are not affected.

The leaving the scene charge carries a maximum sentence of up to one year in prison, and is prosecuted in General Sessions. The client’s DUI charge remained in traffic court. After filing our initial challenges to both charges the prosecutor reviewed the evidence obtained by the police officer and dismissed the leaving the scene charge. This left the DUI still pending in Magistrate Court. Prior to the case being called for trial the DUI was reduced to a reckless driving. This resulted in the DUI being removed from our client’s record, and our client not being subjected to a license suspension, SR-22 insurance, ADSAP course, or interlock requirement.
  • Charges Dismissed
    Public Disorderly Conduct Our client was arrested for public disorderly conduct. He was arrested after police responded to a 911 report that he had been acting strangely on the side of the road. Our client was a business professional, and did not have the character of someone who would be doing anything illegal. When the officer responded he did find our client outside close to the the road (and in the vicinity of his house) where he was going about his regular activities, nothing inappropriate. After further investigation Mr. Snell believed that a health condition that our client has was mistaken by the officer as being symptomatic of drug or alcohol intoxication. We obtained medical records and forwarded them to the prosecutor and other documentation of how the symptoms can be mistaken for intoxication. After the case was set for trial, but prior to the date of court, the prosecutor elected to dismiss the charge.
  • Reckless Driving
    DUI We represented a client arrested for DUI by a local Sheriff’s Department. He tried to cooperate during the arrest, answering all the officer’s questions and even giving a breath sample. This meant that the evidence against him included admitting multiple drinks, performing poorly on standardized field sobriety tests, and a breath test result showing a 0.18 BAC (making the case the most serious type of DUI 1st under South Carolina law). After fully examining the evidence and discussions with the officer the charge was reduced to reckless driving. This will erase the DUI arrest from our client’s record and really give him a 2nd chance at a fully productive life. Our young client was facing a third DUI arrest. We recommended an immediate intervention into a counseling and treatment program. After review of the evidence we uncovered details that would make it difficult for the prosecutor to prevail. As a result the charge was ultimately reduced to reckless driving. As a result our client was able to avoid jail time and had the DUI arrest record removed.
  • Reduced to Reckless Driving
    DUI

    Our client was a college-aged driver who was charged with DUI after a late-night incident involving running his car off of the road and striking a fire hydrant. Water shot up in the air. He admitted drinking, performed field sobriety tests, and provided a breath BAC score of 0.17. This appeared to be an impossible DUI case. However after fully evaluating the case, we discovered that there were in fact significant defenses that could be raised. After discussions with the prosecutor the DUI was reduced to reckless driving.

  • Reduced to Public Disorderly Conduct
    DUI

    We represented a driver who was arrested after he was found on the side of the road with his car running. An open bottle of alcohol was also found in the vehicle. He provided a breath BAC score of 0.16. After fully evaluating the evidence we learned that there was a significant challenge to the DUI.

  • Reduced to Reckless Driving
    DUI, Open Container We defended a client charged with DUI, open container and other related charges. A police “drug recognition expert” determined that our client was impaired by marijuana, and a drug test showed marijuana and other drugs in our client’s system. The DUI charge was reduced to reckless driving, a minor in possession of alcohol charge was sent to the alcohol education program. Other charges were dismissed. This will result in our client having a clean criminal record and a second chance at a fully productive life.
  • Reduced to Reckless Driving, Others Dismissed

His blood alcohol level was tested at a 0.12, which is high enough to put him at the mid-level for South Carolina DUI charges.

  • Dismissed
    DUI

    Our client was charged with DUI and provided a breath sample of 0.09. This was a case pending in a Lexington County municipal court. Prior to the court date the police department was unwilling to offer any reductions to the charge. We notified them that we would be fully contesting the case in court and had the court schedule a trial date. After we had prepared the case for court they agreed to dismiss the DUI and offer a plea to reckless driving.

    We represented a man arrested for DUI after the police found him asleep in a car that had run off of the road and up into a ditch. According to the police he smelled like alcohol and showed other signs of impairment. Prior to trial we negotiated a reduction to too fast for conditions (a type of speeding ticket). The DUI was dismissed and erased from our client’s record.

  • Not Guilty Verdict
    DUI James Snell obtained a not-guilty verdict on a DUI prosecuted in the Irmo Municipal Court. Our client was pulled over after 3:00 A.M. after being observed driving in the wrong lane. Upon questioning there was an admission at having some alcohol, and the breathalyzer test was refused. Mr. Snell argued to the jury that such a substantial driving error would, if related to intoxication, be substantial intoxication. But the evidence presented didn't show that, and instead the driver was simply tired and also sick. After deliberations the jury found our client not-guilty. As a result there was no fine, no points, no DUI suspension, SR-22 insurance, interlock device, or other penalty imposed.
  • Reduced to Reckless Driving
    DUI, 3rd Offense Our client was charged with a DUI 3 rd offense after being pulled over for allegedly swerving between lanes. This was a felony charge pending in General Sessions.

Although our client refused the breathalyzer, that suspension was also dismissed by the Office of Motor Vehicle Hearings prior to the trial date. On the day of trial the DUI was reduced to reckless driving. Our client paid a fine to the court for the reckless driving and open container. He was not required to enroll in ADSAP, obtain SR-22 insurance, or have any license suspension.
