Riverside, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
A Wallin & Klarich client recently had two charges of driving under the influence and one charge of resisting arrest completely dismissed. The client was represented by Riverside criminal defense attorney Andrei Lapine of Wallin & Klarich, who successfully proved police misconduct during the client’s arrest.
“This case is a classic example of the good things that can happen for clients when you take the time to file the appropriate motions in the case. At the end of the day the entire case was dismissed and the client could not be happier,” said Mr. Lapine.
According to Riverside Superior Court-Southwest District record, the incident began one night when the client was driving home and found police in the driveway of his neighbor’s house on another call. The police allegedly saw the client’s car approaching at a high rate of speed and watched as the client sped into his driveway with his tires screeching to a halt. The police officers claimed that they then watched the client stagger out his car and stumble to the front door of his house. After the client was in the house, one of the police officers knocked on his front door. The client answered the door but refused to come outside at the officer’s request. The client tried to shut the door to his own home but the officer stuck his foot inside the door and prevented the client from doing so. The client then got into a struggle with the officer, and a second officer then stepped in and used a taser gun on the client.
Subsequently, the client was arrested and charged with two counts of driving under the influence pursuant to California Vehicle Code section 23152 and one count of resisting arrest pursuant to California Penal Code section 148(a). If convicted, the client faced a sentence of 18 months in the county jail.
The client quickly sought the assistance of Riverside criminal defense lawyer Andrei Lapine to fight against the charges as stated by Wallin & Klarich. After discussing the case with the client and investigating the circumstances, Mr. Lapine filed a Motion to Suppress and a Motion to Dismiss relating to the charges against the client. Mr. Lapine successfully showed that the police had acted unlawfully during the client’s arrest. In addition, Mr. Lapine showed that the District Attorney had let the statute of limitations on the case run. The District Attorney ultimately submitted to Mr. Lapine’s motion and as a result the client had all charges dismissed.
