Do I have a chance at trial to get my case dismissed?
Officer pulled me over after a phone call from the establishment I left. I was not doing anything illegal when pulled over. This was recorded in a statement at the ALS meeting which I won. I was asked to take the PBT whIle the officer held an orange card which I learned later was the implied consent. He never read implied consent. I did not take the PBT, but did take field sobriety test which I honestly think I did very well. After the third test, the one leg stand, performing flawlessly I put my foot on the ground and was told I was under arrest. I put my hands behind my back, and didn't say another word. The officer never read implied consent. I later learned they were diong a shift change. I was transported to the jail and booked. No blood or breath test was taken. The officer testified under oath at the ALS hearing he read implied consent. The video shows otherwise, including I argued while he read it but I clearly did not. I did not have a lawyer at the time of my pretrial, and did not accept an offer. I have a lawyer now but honestly have my doubts. This is a small town. Looking for advise to talk to my lawyer about.
