Cindy Castillo DUI, Case Successes

State v. Mr. C (2017)

Practice Area: Criminal Law/ DUI

Date: May 18, 2017

Description: University Lakes Justice Court: Mr. C was alleged to have committed a first time regular DUI after being stopped by Arizona State Police Officers after an alleged traffic violation. Mr. C allegedly did poorly on field sobriety tests and a recorded blood alcohol content test of .088 on the Intoxilizer 8000 breath machine. If found guilty, Mr. C would have been required to serve jail time, complete substance abuse classes, install an ignition interlock device on his car, and pay substantial fines. Mr. Goebel was able to convince the prosecutor to allow Mr. C to plead to a reduced plea of Reckless Driving. This prevented Mr. C from having a DUI conviction on his record, pay reduced fines, and not have to install an ignition interlock on his car.

Results depend upon factors unique to each case. Results in one case do not predict results in another case.
