In a Summit County DUI case, Denver DUI attorney Jacob E. Martinez successfully argued for the dismissal of the DMV revocation proceeding initiated against his client. In reviewing the documentation the DMV was relying upon in his client’s driver’s license revocation proceeding, Mr. Martinez noticed a discrepancy in the police paperwork. In Colorado, when a breathalyzer is the basis for the BAC result in a DUI case, the defendant needs to be continuously monitored by police for twenty minutes prior to the test’s administration. However, in this case, it was evident the officer did not do so. For this reason, the DMV revocation proceeding against the client was dismissed, and the client maintained his driving privilege.
