Charge: DUI
Mr. Kohn represented a client whom he had represented in two prior DUI cases, both of which resulted in either dismissal or reduced charges. In this case, the client had been found passed out in the driver’s seat of his vehicle. The arresting officer asked him to perform field sobriety tests, which he did, but the client refused the breath test. Despite the officer’s testimony, Mr. Kohn argued that his client had acted reasonably, which was also established by video footage.
Result: Not guilty

Charge: DUI
The client was charged with DUI after being involved in an accident, vomiting several times, and registering an unlawful blood alcohol level. Mr. Kohn determined that the police did not rinse his client’s mouth out with water prior to administering the breath alcohol test, despite their training mandating them to do so when the defendant has vomited or regurgitated. Though the judge was hesitant to accept a deal in a case with such a high BAC, he and the prosecution agreed and the client’s charge was reduced to reckless driving.
Result: Charge reduced to reckless driving

Result: Charge reduced to reckless driving

Charge: DUI

The testifying officer stated that he re-read the implied consent warning and the client then agreed to the test. However, the officer who administered the test informed Mr. Kohn that the implied consent warning had not been re-read at the station, meaning the officer had lied on the stand. At the urging of Mr. Kohn, the officer dropped the DUI charge in exchange for a plea of following too closely and a fine.
Result: DUI dismissed, pled to following too closely
