Drugged Driving Case Completely Dropped for Fresno Woman

Aug 25, 2017 by Mike McKneely in Criminal Defense, Drug Charges, DUI

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs poses a significant threat to other drivers and offenders face serious consequences in California like the loss of your license, expensive fines, and even jail time. Fortunately, attorney Michael McKneely knows how a DUI conviction can seriously impact one’s life and has the knowledge and necessary skills to help navigate a case towards the best possible outcome.

Not too long ago, a 56-year-old woman was arrested for supposedly driving under the influence of drugs. She was found in Fresno near her doctor’s office in the middle of the night. If convicted, she could potentially lose her ability to drive permanently and as a result, would no longer be able to serve as the primary caregiver for her elderly mother.

By comprehensively studying the woman’s medical records and current medications, attorney McKneely found that she was not under the influence at all, but rather disorientated from a lack of sleep caused by her current medical regimen. After this evidence was presented in court along with expert testimony, the case was dismissed, giving the woman her life back.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
