May 27, 2010 — DUI Attorneys from DM Cantor were able to convince a judge to throw out a man’s prior DUI conviction for purpose of sentence enhancement.
According to court documents, in the case of State v. Siepmann (Case No: TR2008147127) the defendant had been convicted for a second time of Extreme DUI involving a .181 breath test. Due to his prior conviction, the defendant was facing 120 days in jail instead of the mandatory minimum 10 days in jail.
DUI attorneys from DM Cantor were able to argue that the prosecutor did not disclose Siepmann’s motor vehicle from the DMV in a timely manner and as a result, evidence of his prior DUI conviction was suppressed.
Although the prior conviction had been suppressed, the judge was still allowed to enhance the mandatory minimum sentence based upon other evidence. Siepmann was sentenced to serve an additional 5 days by the judge.
“The rules regarding the disclosure of evidence is very specific because the State violated these rules they were unable to use that evidence,” said Phoenix DUI attorney David Michael Cantor. “Although we were unable to earn our client the lowest sentence possible. It still beat 120 days in jail.”
DM Cantor enjoy an excellent reputation as DUI Attorneys in Phoenix, and throughout the Legal Community because of their aggressiveness, integrity, honesty, and professionalism.
