State Failed to Prove Elements of the Crime On September 30, 2012, our client was charged with exceeding a safe speed and driving while impaired. The allegations were that she called the police to report an accident she was in where the car flipped on its side. When the officer arrived on the scene, one of the neighbors had come out and the client was outside the vehicle. The officer had her do a horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) test, a walk and turn test, and a one leg stand. He then performed an Alcosensor. But at trial, the officer admitted that he didn’t follow the proper health regulations, and the “positive” results were not allowed into evidence. After performing this test he arrested her for driving while impaired. On the scene, she advised that she was driving the car and reported the wreck as she was required to [...]

Our client was facing several felony drug charges including trafficking in heroin and opium. Under that charge alone, she was up against a mandatory 18-year minimum prison sentence. But, she was likely facing a 22-year prison sentence if convicted. Her bond was set at 1.5 million dollars. Our criminal defense attorney in Greensboro got to work right away. After in-depth research, she came across legislative updates that made it clear that our client was improperly charged with trafficking. At maximum, she should have been charged with Possession with Intent to Sell a Controlled (schedule II) Substance. Our attorney made this argument at a bond hearing and successfully reduced our client's bond from 1.5 million down to $100k. The judge even commented from the bench that he was reducing it in light of the fact our client was likely overcharged. The District Attorney, however, did not agree and continued to push the trafficking [...]
Client was charged with DWI and failure to reduce speed. He had left a restaurant in the late evening after having two very large beers and a bit to eat. While driving around a corner, he went off the road. The police responded within minutes. Client was put through the battery of field sobriety tests, was arrested and eventually blew a .14 at the station in downtown Winston Salem, where he was charged with DWI and failure to reduce speed. An unsuccessful motion was made regarding the accuracy of the field sobriety test; however, importantly, the testimony of the officer who testified was clearly not credible. This credibility issue was brought to the forefront by Mr. Fradin. After a full trial on the merits, and the officer’s credibility continually challenged, Mr. Fradin successfully argued to the Forsyth county court that the state had not met its burden of [...]
