"It's okay. I f*#ked up."
No I didn't say that. That's what the cop said in the courtroom. It was right after the judge did the right thing. The cop wasn't mad. The prosecutor was livid. My client was free to go.
So what happened?
The judge agreed with me. Believing that if the cops have a videotape purportedly saying my client was drunk, then my client better be on that video. If not, then no, respectfully no, officer you are not going to sit here under oath and testify that my client failed all of the Field Sobriety Tests when the video doesn't ever show my client.
Don't you think it would be an awful lot easier for the police and the accused if there was video? Then the he said, she said goes away. After all a picture is worth a thousand words.
