Not Guilty on DUI. Felony DUI reduced to a Misdemeanor. Cross examination aided by rigorous investigation yielded another Not Guilty in a bench trial. Also, prolonged negotiation and a vigorous defense resulted in the State’s Attorney reducing charges from Felony DUI to a misdemeanor.

August 2009

Martha P. was charged with Driving Under The Influence of Alcohol by the Illinois State Police. Mr. Callahan was retained, all the police reports acquired. Our investigation revealed that Martha was not actually driving under the influence of alcohol. She had been attending a graduation celebration earlier with her two sisters, a cousin and a friend. During dinner she had One margarita. The police officer claimed that she was pulled over due to her weaving. He further claimed that she had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and problems walking. We called Martha’s sister’s, her cousin and her friend as witnesses at trial. They all testified that Martha was sober, and that the Illinois State Police officer arrested her because he was disturbed by her attitude. Numerous inconsistencies were uncovered during the cross-examination of the police officer. Martha was found NOT GUILTY of all charges.

October 2009

Lorena B. was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol by the Chicago Police Department. Her license was suspended for 3 years by the Secretary of State. We were able to get her license back for her. A petition to rescind Statutory Summary Suspension was filed. After a hearing the Judge ordered the Secretary of State to return Lorena’s license. The Chicago Police Officer’s testimony was severely impeached on cross examination. He testified during trial that Lorena had a strong smell of alcohol on her person and in her car. Attorney Callahan pointed out that this was not mentioned in any of the Officer’s reports. This cast doubt on all of the Officer’s testimony. The Judge decided that the State’s Attorney’s had not proven their case beyond a reasonable doubt, and Lorena was found NOT GUILTY of all charges.
