After hearing arguments from the State and from Attorney Finebloom, the judge dismissed the DUI charges against Finebloom & Haenel’s client.

According to the arrest report, the defendant was involved in a traffic accident in 2007. Investigation of the case included a blood alcohol test that took several weeks to conclude. The driver’s blood alcohol level came back at nearly three times the legal limit, and the State Attorney’s office filed charges for DUI against him.

The State made no attempt to serve the arrest warrant, and the driver was not arrested until five years later, at which time he contacted the law firm of Finebloom & Haenel for representation. DUI defense attorney Darren Finebloom immediately filed a motion to dismiss based upon a violation of the Statute of Limitations, which places a time limit under which prosecution must commence. According to the court documents, after hearing arguments from the State and from Attorney Finebloom, the judge dismissed the DUI charges against Finebloom & Haenel’s client.
