People of the State of Illinois v. J.G.
Our client was stopped by Illinois State Troopers after allegedly crossing onto the shoulder of I-294 at a high rate of speed. The Officer testified at a hearing that there was a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from our client's breath and that he stumbled, swayed and staggered throughout the encounter. The officer further testified that our client failed all field sobriety tests that he performed and our client admitted consuming alcohol prior to being pulled over by the State Trooper.
After a full hearing on a Petition to Rescind the Statutory Summary Suspension, the State's Attorney decided that it would be fruitless to take the matter to trial and the charges of DUI were dropped against our client.
