Attorney Discredits Officer’s Testimony by Proving Defendant Was Not Speeding
DALLAS, TX, August 24, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Attorney Randall Isenberg of the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg won a motion to suppress hearing for a client’s DWI case by using Google Maps and the laws of physics.
The defendant in the case was charged with DWI after an officer pulled him over for speeding. The officer testified that the defendant was traveling at about 70 miles per hour, which was well over the posted speed limit.
However, the officer admitted that his speedometer was not calibrated and said he visually estimated the defendant’s speed.
A camera on the officer’s dashboard captured the defendant’s vehicle on video for 22 seconds. Using the video footage and Google Maps, Mr. Isenberg pinpointed the spot the defendant’s vehicle entered and then exited the video frame.
Mr. Isenberg then used this information to calculate the defendant’s estimated speed using this physics formula:
Speed = Distance / Time
The calculation revealed the defendant was traveling at between 47-48 miles per hour, well below the officer’s visual estimate of 70 miles per hour.
“The officer used the defendant’s speed as probable cause to pull him over,” explained Isenberg. “Fortunately, we had the resources to prove the defendant’s speed was nowhere near the 70 miles per hour the officer claimed. That revelation, combined with the officer’s admission that his speedometer was broken and that he visually estimated the defendant’s speed, established that the officer’s testimony was not credible.”
The Judge in the case felt the officer’s testimony was not believable and granted the motion to suppress.
