NEVADA COP CHARGED WITH DUI

An off-duty police officer is facing serious charges that could have repercussions on his continued career, according to local sources. The 39-year-old Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper was arrested around 2:30 a.m. the morning of Jan. 22. He was booked into county jail for a first DUI offense. He was set to be arraigned on Feb. 1.

According to the arrest record, the officer was stopped around 2:30 a.m. However, the record does not make mention of what caused the stop to begin with. This report also does not list what roadside sobriety tests were administered at the time of the traffic stop. Finally, no mention of the man’s blood alcohol level was made.

The officer was arrested, but was later released under his own recognizance despite bail being set at $2,000. The man is said to have been placed on administrative duties and is apparently cooperating with the investigation at this time. So far, no further information has been made public by Nevada authorities.

Accusing a police officer of DUI is a tall order, even if that officer is off duty. Even suspicion of such a crime can negatively influence his job prospects and continued job security. Nevada authorities have the burden of proof in this case, meaning they must present evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that the officer was drunk at the time he was pulled over. If they are unable to produce such evidence, including a blood test that could corroborate their charges, the DUI charge could be thrown out of court.

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.
