Case Result: Manhattan, N.Y DWI

Rachel Kugel represented a client charged with Misdemeanor DWI as well as Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test in New York City.

During the DMV Refusal Hearing Rachel Kugel successfully argued that the arresting officer lacked probable cause. As such the Refusal case was closed without penalty to the client. Thus saving the client from a mandatory one year license revocation.

Moving on to the criminal case the misdemeanors were dismissed on Rachel Kugel’s speedy trial motion leaving on the VTL 1192.1 DWAI Traffic Infraction.

After one more adjournment The Kugel Law Firm continued to aggressively pursue the case and pushed forward to trial. When the case was finally ready for trial the police officers involved did not remember the incident and the remaining count of VTL 1192.1 DWAI was dismissed due to the State’s inability to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.
