Mr. Dummit wins again! This time, our client was a young woman who had been charged in Winston-Salem with Driving After Consuming under the age of 21. This charge is different from an over 21 DWI. When under 21, a breathalyzer reading of anything over 0.0 is, by law, enough for the charge. Mr. Dummit was able to show that proper procedures were not followed at the time our client was charged, and so the breath test could not be used as evidence. Without a breath test, the state could not prove the charge, and our client’s charge was dismissed.
Dummit Fradin shows, yet again, that the state has to follow the same rules as the citizens.
