On Friday August 8, 2014, Andy Robertson won a hard fought DUI trial in King County District Court, receiving a "not guilty" verdict from the jury after a two day trial. Our client was involved in a rear-end accident where he admitted fault. When police arrived on the scene, the trooper alleged that she smelled alcohol on our client's breath.
The client explained that he worked at a distillery and was exposed to alcohol as part of his job duties. The client was arrested, and declined to take a post-arrest breath test. The King County jury was not convinced that our client was affected by alcohol to the point where he was impaired, and returned with the verdict of not guilty.
In fact, jurors were so impressed with Andy's representation of our client at trial that several stayed behind at the courthouse to hug Andy and compliment her work in the case. Our client, of course, is very thankful to put this stressful event behind him.
