Outcome: Not Guilty on both counts
Description: Client, a 43-year old woman, was stopped twice within 5 minutes because her car matched the description of one that had just left a bar where a person was creating a disturbance. My client was that person. She showed few signs of intoxication, but she lashed out at the police violently; she kicked one officer in the groin, she called another officer vulgar names, and she tried to kick out the window of the cruiser. A booking video showed client’s agitated behavior. Despite her awful behavior, she was acquitted of OUI-2nd and Negligent Driving. Judge reinstated client’s license after trial. Full disclosure: client was convicted of Assault and Battery on a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.
