2021 High Speed Fleeing Okeechobee County

Facts:  Law enforcement was dispatched for a reckless driver on 441. A deputy saw a car matching the description called in and activated his lights and siren after clocking the vehicle at 102mph. The deputy u-turned to follow the vehicle. Ultimately, the pursuit was called off. A short time later our client was stopped by a separate deputy and the original deputy was called to the scene to identify our client.

Results: We listened to our client’s story. He had also recorded the traffic stop and we were able to find inconsistencies in the reports from law enforcement. We took depositions of the deputies to lock them into their story. Then, we set the case for trial and pointed out the inconsistencies to the jury. The jury were able to see what we saw and found our client not guilty!
