New York Drunk Driving Case Victories

Following are several DWI cases which were successfully handled by JOEY JACKSON LAW, PLLC.

People v. J.J.

Client was charged with killing an elderly woman in an early morning car crash-- while driving drunk. She was killed upon impact after being struck by his truck. When the police responded, they noticed that my client had the odor of alcohol on his breath, slurred speech, and watery and blood shot eyes. He was also observed to be unsteady on his feet after being asked to exit his vehicle. Accordingly, he was arrested and prosecuted for Vehicular Manslaughter. Mr. Jackson was able to successfully argue that his client was not the cause of the accident. As such, the focus was placed upon the weather, the road conditions, the dangerous nature of the area where the accident occurred, and the manner in which the woman was driving her car. Additionally, Mr. Jackson was able to provide the jury with alternative explanations as to his client’s alleged visual signs of purported impairment and intoxication. At that hour of the morning, it would not be unusual for a person's eyes to be red and watery, especially if he didn’t get a good night sleep. Further, a person can, and may in fact, have an odor of alcohol on their breath -- without actually being drunk. And as to his lack of balance, the impact of the crash would certainly lead to disorientation. Following a multi- week trial, the jury returned a Not Guilty verdict, completing clearing the client of Vehicular Manslaughter.

People v. LS

Defendant was charged With Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs in Suffolk County, after crashing into a fence on his way home from a party. When the police arrived, the Defendant was fast asleep in his car. Police smelled marijuana and asked him if he was smoking— which the Defendant admitted. He then gave a urine sample, which revealed that he had five (5) different drugs in his system. The Prosecutor refused to reduce the charges, arguing that he could have killed someone or himself. They pressed the Judge to hold him accountable, and not reward him for being lucky enough to not to have killed himself nor anyone else. Nonetheless, since rehabilitation is a central tenet in the law, Mr. Jackson was able to persuade the Prosecutor to dismiss these serious charges. He did so by arguing that his client should be permitted to enter drug treatment to cure his addiction, perform community service, and check back with the Court to ensure he met his obligations.

People v. Jeffries

Acquitted by a Manhattan Supreme Court jury of DWI despite blowing a .18 on the breathalyzer and police testimony regarding alleged intoxication.

People v. Santana

Acquitted by a Bronx Criminal Court jury of DWI despite being involved in a collision and having the police and eyewitness attest to his alleged intoxication.
