Recently, TILDEN LAW was re-hired by a former client who was charged with Violation of Probation in Seminole County, Florida for a second time. Our client was on probation for a alcohol related reckless driving charge that our firm was previously successful in defending and reducing from a DUI charge.
Our client was being tested on a weekly basis through his counseling center for controlled substances. At his most recent counseling meeting, our client tested positive for alcohol by way of urine testing. As a result, our client’s probation officer filed a probation violation affidavit and submitted the violation to the court and office of the State Attorney for prosecution.
Attorney N. Fleetwood Tilden, researched the method of collecting our client’s urine sample as well as the type of alcohol test and determined that neither would be admissible in court to prove our client willfully violated his probation. As a result, the State Attorney dismissed the Violation of Probation charge at the hearing and our client’s probation was terminated in compliance.
