In May 2014, Maryland DUI attorney David Moyse had an impressive morning as he helped two clients beat their DUI charges and avoid jail time.
In the first case, the prosecuting attorney planned to ask for a month in jail for Moyse’s client’s third DUI. Moyse successfully convinced the Montgomery County District court Judge to dismiss the case in its entirety for failing to provide the Defendant with a “Speedy Trial.” Moyse’s argument was bolstered by the fact that the Defendant had appeared twice in court with Moyse demanding a trial, but both times the Court ran out of time to hear the case.
Ultimately, the client walked out of Court with no fines, no points, and no jail!
In the second case, Moyse’s client was underage, driving over 130 mph on the Beltway, and admitted to consuming some alcohol. Maryland DUI lawyer David Moyse successfully cross-examined the arresting officer into admitting many facts that were damaging to the State’s case.
At the close of evidence, the Defendant was found NOT GUILTY of DUI, DWI, and Fleeing and Eluding. The client still faced hefty fines for driving 130 mph in a public area, but escaped jail time and kept a clean DUI record.
Maryland DUI lawyer convinced a Montgomery County District Court Judge to throw out all traffic charges in a DWI case where the Defendant had been stopped for speeding and weaving over the lane. The judge sided with JM’s lawyer who argued that the officer was out of his jurisdiction and that the stop was invalid as the officer did not have the authority to enforce the Motor Vehicle Laws outside of his jurisdiction. Defense attorney also argued, and the Montgomery County Judge agreed, that the testimony regarding the client’s speed was invalid as the officer did not have the proper certification of his police vehicle with him in court.
Howard County DUI lawyer
Defense attorney convinced a Howard County district court judge to sentence the Defendant to only four days of incarceration for his client’s third and fourth DWIs. The Jezic & Moyse client had been charged with driving under the influence two times within 30 days. In each case, the client had submitted a breathe test over .20, an amount almost 3 times more than the legal limit in Maryland. The defense attorney forced the Howard County State’s Assistant State’s Attorney to dismiss one of the cases and following a plea, where the state was asking for 6 months, convinced the judge to sentence the Jezic & Moyse, client to only 4 days in jail.
Maryland personal injury attorney, Jonathan Carroll, fought hard at trial after his client had been sideswiped by another car that unlawfully merged into his lane. The at-fault driver tried to argue at court that our client was the one who unlawfully left his lane. Our client prevailed, because he had photographs of the scene that showed the at-fault driver in his lane. If you are involved in an accident, it is important to take as many photos at the accident scene as possible. If you have been in accident and have any questions, call the attorneys at Jezic and Moyse, LLC.
Maryland DUI Attorney
In April 2014, Maryland DUI Attorney David Moyse convinced a Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge to dismiss his client’s DUI due to a violation of the client’s right to a speedy trial. It was the client’s second DUI and he had already been sentenced to six days in jail by a District Court Judge.
Moyse convinced the district court judge to stay the jail pending appeal. The Circuit Court victory means that Moyse’s client has no conviction on his record, no fines, and does not have to serve any jail time at all.
Maryland criminal defense lawyer
In February, 2014, Maryland criminal defense attorney Rand Lucey convinced a District Court Judge to discredit the testimony of three police and rule that the police search of the client’s vehicle was illegal. The three officers had testified, independently, that the client had consented to the search of his car, but Mr. Lucey convinced the Judge to believe his client, who testified that he had refused to consent. As a result, the drugs the officers found were suppressed, and his client was acquitted of all charges.
Maryland DUI lawyer
In April 2014, Moyse’s client was facing significant incarceration for his third DUI. However, Moyse successfully argued that the State had violated mandatory discovery rules by failing to provide a video tape to the defense. Moyse had made multiple requests for the trooper’s video, but despite two court dates, the State failed to produce the video. The District Court Judge found that the State had failed to comply with the rules, and completely dismissed all charges, despite the presence of all necessary police officers.
