Pulled over for swerving, veering and not coming to a complete stop at a red light. Arrested after field sobriety tests and telling police he had 3 beers. Case reduced to dry reckless.

♦19WM12464, DUI Attorney Richard Wagner got his client’s entire DUI dismissed. Orange County, West Justice Justice Center. Arrested by Huntington Beach Police. Pulled over for “passing the rubber of the tires over the dotted lines.” Arrested after the police officer saw bloodshot and watery eyes, smelled an odor of alcoholic beverage, and admitted to drinking wine, not doing the field sobriety tests as demonstrated, and breath test results of .12 percent on the Alco Sensor Vxl machine.

♦9PC02781, DUI Defense Attorney Richard Wagner got his client’s DUI dismissed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Pomona Courthouse. The Los Angeles County District Attorney filed driving under the influence of cocaine, after pulling client over for driving on the wrong side of the road, without lights at night. On day for set jury trial, this case settled for a wet reckless.

♦19HM01849, California DUI Attorney Richard Wagner got his client’s entire DUI case dismissed in Newport Beach at the Harbor Justice Center. Richard Wagner was ready for jury trial against the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. DA charged his client with driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a BAC of .08% or more. Case dismissed. Even though evidence showed six breathalyzer results over .08 percent. Poor performance on field sobriety tests, and client telling Laguna Beach cops she had wine before she got behind the wheel.

♦8WC05551, California DUI Attorney Richard Wagner won a jury trial. In the West Covina Courthouse in Los Angeles County very few lawyers, if any, would have guts or skill to take to trial.

The 12 person jury was not convinced and unanimously voted not guilty – to acquit – on all charges. Mr. Wagner also got his client’s DMV suspension (set aside) dismissed.
