People v. M.G.

Our client was charged with his second DUI and was alleged to have operated his vehicle while under the influence of Marijuana. The arresting officer from the Chicago Police Dept. claimed that he pulled my client over after having committed a minor traffic violation. When the Officer approached my client, he said that my client’s breath smelled of burnt cannabis. Furthermore, my client admitted to having smoked marijuana earlier in the day. At trial, Mr. LaScola thoroughly cross-examined the Officer regarding his administration of “drug-recognition field tests” and pointed out many serious missteps to the Court. The Daley Center Judge agreed with Mr. LaScola and found the Defendant NOT GUILTY of his 2nd DUI!!! Defendant will not be revoked and his driving privileges will remain intact.
