FORMER COMMISSIONER IN CLARK COUNTY ACCUSED OF DRUNK DRIVING

A former Clark County commissioner is facing criminal charges following a car accident he was involved in, according to local sources. He was arrested in the early evening of Dec. 11 by Nevada law enforcement in Las Vegas. Currently, no court date has been set for him.

The police report contains almost no information about why the man was pulled over or why he was arrested. No mention was made of any roadside sobriety tests being performed, or even if he was acting suspiciously at the time of his arrest. Nevertheless, it was reported that he was arrested and taken to Clark County Jail at approximately 7:50 p.m.

The 65-year-old former state lawmaker resigned earlier this year. Family issues, which were not detailed, were cited as the reason for his resignation. With regard to the drinking and driving accusations, he was released on bail shortly after being booked into the jail.

Presumably, more information will be forthcoming concerning the drunk driving charges. Nevada prosecutors will have their work cut out for them in attempting to prove the guilt of a former lawmaker. There was no indication that the man has an existing criminal record of drunk driving incidents. Evidence in the form of a roadside sobriety test or blood test may need to be presented to the court, proving the man was above the .08 legal limit at the time of his arrest. If such evidence does not exist, or was collected in a way that infringed on the man’s rights, the state may have to rely upon the personal observations of law enforcement authorities involved in the arrest, which it typically seen as a less reliable form of evidence.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
