A client was pulled over by police after the officer said that he saw the car swerving from side to side. When the client stepped out of the vehicle, the officer noted the odor of alcohol on his breath and bloodshot, watery eyes. The officer asked the client to perform roadside exercises, which the officer said he failed. Thereafter, he was taken to the police station for a breath test. The client admitted that he had taken xanax and molly. The client was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
The client hired Erick Cruz to represent him. First, Erick helped him obtain a hardship driver's license so that he could go to work. Then Erick began investigating the case. Based on his investigation, Erick filed a motion to suppress the stop and evidence obtained because there was insufficient evidence to have arrested the client in the first place. Right before the start of the hearing on the motion to suppress, the prosecutor agreed to reduce the DUI charged to reckless driving and offered a withhold of adjudication that allows the client to seal the case in the future. More importantly, the prosecutor agreed not to suspend the client's license and only imposed a $250 fine and traffic school.
During his time as a prosecutor, Erick Cruz attended trainings specifically dealing with the prosecution of DUI cases. Erick knows the correct way to investigate and prosecute these cases and more importantly how to defense against DUI charges in Miami. Erick has used this knowledge to successfully defend countless people charged in connection with driving under the influence.
