While plowing a driveway, my truck crashed into the side of the house causing extensive damage. I said I had 3 beers but they found an open container of vodka on the dashboard and my 5 year old in the front seat so I was charged with Child Endangerment while I was OUI. It was my third offense and got extensive news coverage. (They dubbed me “Mr. Plowed” on the Internet!)
Although 2 cops and the Chief of the Fire Department testified I was disheveled and gave their opinion I was under the influence, Joe found an appellate case which had just come down the very week of trial. The Judge said he had read it that very morning, relied on it in issuing acquittals on all 3 charges and actually complimented Joe for finding it.
Then Joe followed through and convinced the Judge to overturn my 5 year license suspension for refusing the breathalyzer - which got us back in the news papers again!
