Last week TILDEN LAW was contacted by a former client who we represented on a DUI charge in Seminole County, Florida that was successfully resolved as a lesser charge of Reckless Driving. As a condition of his sentence, our client was placed on probation with a special condition of probation that he neither possess nor consume alcohol. Unfortunately, our client tested positive for alcohol during a meeting with his counselors. As a result of the positive test result, our client’s probation officer violated his probation and the judge issued a VOP warrant with no bond.
Attorney N. Fleetwood Tilden, contacted the State Attorney’s office and was able to convince the prosecutor not to object to our client being granted a bond. Mr. Tilden also researched the test used at the counselors office to test our client for alcohol and determined that there are additional environmental factors which may cause a “false positive” result. Mr. Tilden filed a Motion to Recall Warrant and was ultimately successful in convincing the judge to recall the arrest warrant without ever arresting our client and allow our client to remain out of custody pending his hearing.
