Defense Lawyer David Michael Cantor's office earned his client a hung verdict on all three charges in the case of State v. Shinn (Scottsdale Municipal Court Case No: TR2009-013981). A Scottsdale City Court jury returned the hung verdict on charges of DUI, DWI and extreme DWI.

"At first look, the State appeared to have a very strong case against our client," said defense lawyer David Michael Cantor. "After extensive examination and research, we were able to identify numerous flaws in the State's case and earn our client a hung verdict as well as a significantly reduced plea offer."

The state claimed that Shinn's blood alcohol content was a .187, however, defense lawyer David Michael Cantor's associate was able to provide evidence to the contrary. The defense lawyer was able to show that the field sobriety tests indicated that Shinn was not impaired, and he was able to show that the officer's eye test was not admissible.

Defense lawyer David Michael Cantor's associate was also able to provide evidence that the City of Scottsdale Police Department was using an old Gas Chromatograph machine that has been replaced by a more reliable machine. Also, the State did not present any maintenance or calibration records which would show that that the machine was working accurately and correctly.

The prosecution has now offered defense lawyer David Michael Cantor and his client a substantially reduced plea offer in order to prevent having to retry the case.
