There is nothing better than to get a letter from your lawyer telling you your DUI case has been dismissed. This is exactly what happened recently for a client that had a warrant for a drunk driving case in the Lamont Court in South Kern County. The client had been working in the area and was stopped after a night out, he was brought in and booked for driving under the influence of alcohol, VC23152a. The client subsequently left the area and missed his Court date in the Arvin-Lamont Superior Court, a bench warrant was issued and it remained active for some time. It was discovered when the driver went to his home DMV and was unable to renew his license due to the failure to appear. He went online and searched for a lawyer who could help him get the warrant recalled and resolve the criminal charges, he retained Bakersfield DUI Attorney Bruce Blythe who immediately got the arrest warrant quashed and filed a motion to dismiss the charges on various Constitutional grounds. According to the accused, the attorney kept him informed and up to date about the case and explained the strategy that he intended to use to get the DWI case dismissed. After about 45 days Mr. Blythe got a hearing to drop the case. The District Attorney agreed with the lawyer and did not oppose the dismissal of the case on the grounds that the defendant’s rights were infringed by failing to prosecute the charges in a speedy manner. At the end of the day, the client was pleased with the efforts of the representation, the case was dismissed and he was able to get his license renewed in his home state.
