Client was arrested at a DUI checkpoint in Huntington Beach with an alcohol level of 0.13%. The court failed to start his trial on the last day allowed by law because there were no jurors available. The next day the trial court denied our motion to dismiss for violation of his rights to a speedy trial. We appealed to the Superior Court Appellate Division, who also denied our motion.
We took the case to the Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal reversed the Superior Court and ordered it to dismiss our Client’s case.

Checkpoint DUI - DISMISSED

People v. Joshua F. (10-30-14) (Orange County)

The DA had only subpoenaed the driving officer, not the passenger/arresting officer. The DA tried to continue the motion to subpoena the correct cop. We vigorously opposed the motion on the grounds that the DA had not been diligent in preparation.
