Tilem & Associates won a complete victory in a DWI trial in Greenburgh last week after more than three years of litigation. The trial lasted two days and the defense focused on the lack of evidence that the driver was actually operating the vehicle which is a requirement in any DWI or DWAI trial. The driver had been facing up to a year in jail, revocation of his driving privileges a substantial fine and surcharge and imposition of the New York State Driver Responsibility Assessment.
The DWI arrest came about after an incident in the driver’s condominium parking lot where he was found asleep at the wheel with the engine running. Greenburgh police claimed that when they woke him he put the car in gear. Police further claimed that he was too intoxicated to perform field sobriety tests.
Mr. Tilem has had extensive training in DWI related topics including DUI detection, Field Sobriety Testing and conducting DWI trials. He has won 7 of 8 DWI trials in the last eighteen months.
