Texas Department of Public Safety v. F.L.S.

Case Number: C-1-CR-14-210499

F.L.S was stopped for driving while intoxicated by a Travis County Sheriff’s Office deputy.  During aggressive cross examination at the administrative license revocation, it was determined that the client was left sitting in her car for over forty minutes so a DWI task force officer could conduct the field sobriety tests. The officers on scene waited for a DWI task force officer to ensure the continued use of DWI task force grant funds for overtime pay. 

Result: The administrative law judge found there was no legitimate law enforcement purpose for the delay and client’s case was ultimately dismissed through a diversion program.
