People v. S.H.

Our client was involved in a property damage accident where she struck a tree. An electrical issue resulted from the impact and her vehicle caught on fire. Our client was observed by an eyewitness shortly after the incident walking from the vicinity of the accident. A lackluster DUI investigation was conducted thereafter and the State had difficulty establishing that our client was the driver of the vehicle based upon weak hearsay testimony of an alleged eyewitness. After argument on the issue of “reasonable grounds” to arrest for DUI was made by Mr. LaScola and the Jude at the Skokie courthouse agreed. Suspension RESCINDED!!!!
