DUI ACQUITTAL OF ALL CHARGES - "NOT GUILTY"
Under Age 21 DUI .03 & .03 (PAS):
ACQUITTED - found "NOT GUILTY" (No DUI & No Loss of Driver's License)
Butte College Student stopped for running a stop sign. Upon smelling alcohol, the CHP Officer had Mitchell perform field sobriety tests (FSTs) - which included blowing into a Preliminary Alcohol Screening Device (PAS). The result was .03 & .03 - above the .01 or more zero tolerance for persons under 21 years old. It went to trial and Mitchell was acquitted. Because this was an acquittal, the impending one year license suspension by DMV was set aside. No loss of driver's license, no DUI school, no VIP Classes, no alcohol terms, and no Ignition Interlock Device (IID). (Mitchell prevailed in court and at DMV).
