Heard #InCourt This Week:

Johnny (B. 'Good'): But, I wasn't looking for trouble (or sex).

#DCLawyer: Yea; I hear you, but sometimes trouble comes looking for you, though... And you end up with a Soliciting Prostitution or Sexual Solicitation arrest and charges against you*.

#PublicServiceAnnouncement: There's an ongoing DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) undercover prostitution sting operation in and around 13th & 14th Street, NW - and down from Logan Circle. It involves pulling into a gas station - you could also be simply walking by - and being approached by a 'friendly' female* asking if you're looking for "fun". A word to the wise, you're not. Do not engage her in ANY conversation; keep moving - NOTHING to see (or do) here. #JustWalkAway!

*Unfortunately, entrapment is not a defense. It is not enough to say I had NO intention - "I did not give her any money" or "I did not even have $30 on me" - to engage in sex or get a blow job in exchange for money. As long as there is a (verbal) AGREEMENT or "meeting of the minds" for the "exchange of sexual favors", it is enough for an arrest and a judge may find sufficient grounds for the alleged offense. As they say in the law: caveat emptor - #BuyerBeware!

Today's Washington, DC & Maryland DUI Attorney Tip:

Maryland #DUI arresting police officers are now routinely tagging arrested OUT of state/non-resident drivers in their Motor Vehicles Administration (MVA) database resulting in individuals driver's license+ being suspended nationwide and in MD without having first received the benefit of an administrative "hearing" at a Maryland MVA.

+No due process since one is arrested typically on SUSPICION of DUI and a court has to then hear evidence to determine guilt or innocence. With a MD driver, the officer will typically take the license - issue a temporary forty-five (45) day permit - and the individual has to then apply for an Administrative Hearing at MVA to deal with potential suspension issues as it relates to the arrest. Not the case now with individuals who possess out of state licenses. Please share, tag and/or 'tell a friend to tell a friend'.

In Texas, people with unpaid traffic tickets can lose their driver's licenses and even go to jail because of the Driver Responsibility Program. Though lawmakers acknowledge the policy disproportionately hurts the poor, they've struggled to eliminate it.

DC Lawyer #InCourt: Client Found Not Guilty of DUI Charges after Trial!

When the client is adamant (fairly so, but not overly) that he is NOT guilty and the judge agrees after trial.

Client is arrested for DUI in Washington, DC and maintains (it is captured on police Body Worn Camera/BWC)* that he only had a couple of drinks and was of the opinion that he performed well on the standard field sobriety tests. I agreed with him after reviewing the video. At the police station he refuses to submit to the breath test which, once again, is his right BUT there can be potential consequences at the DC DMV where they can try, based on this refusal alone, to revoke your DC driving privileges for one (1) year.

Before we got to a trial posture the prosecutor offered a plea option to resolve the case positively, but client refused to agree to the Deferred Sentencing Agreement offer. It required him to admit to the DUI charge and after one (1) year the case is dismissed with no conviction record.

At trial, it was very telling that the prosecutor did not seek to introduce the Body Worn Camera* video footage - whether deliberate strategy or inadvertent omission - but chose instead to rely solely on the testimony of one officer (two (2) were present at trial call). Officer X testified that client had "slurred speech" and that he displayed poor balance, among other things, on the Walk and Turn and One-Legged Stand tests. Needless to say we disagreed. On cross-examination, Officer X admitted, reluctantly, that client had no difficulty exiting his vehicle when asked to do so - he did not use the steering wheel or car door for support and did not lean on and/or touch the vehicle to support himself. In fact, he conceded that client's balance was "good" when doing things other than performing the battery of tests he had him do. (The government did not seek to introduce the results of the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus - HGN). In my client's defense and in addition to his testimony - credibility can be a big factor in a judge's ruling - we introduced the body worn camera footage. We believe it made ALL the difference.

The judge, we noticed, paid careful attention to the body worn camera video. He attributed what the prosecutor, "high level of speed", according to the officer's testimony, tried to portray as "bad driving" to what amounted to "aggressive driving". In his ruling he said, "I do not find the evidence compelling" and, as such, "it doesn't rise to the level of beyond a reasonable doubt. For that reason I find Mr.____________ Not Guilty"! #ImDoneHere!
