Commonwealth v. H.M. - Public Intoxication - DISMISSED

August 2017

Client was charged with public intoxication in Arlington after the arresting officer observed the hallmark signs of drunkenness (odor of alcohol, bloodshot, watery, glassy eyes, and slurred speech.)  Client admitted to consuming alcohol as well, and was arrested.  However, due to the firm's familiarity with different possible outcomes in this particular court, our lawyers were able to map out the best possible plan to advocate for a successful resolution.  Client followed every recommendation of our lawyers, and Ms. Carmichael got his charge DISMISSED with the possibility for expungement!
