DUI Against Minor in North East, PA Withdrawn

On a Saturday morning at 4:00 a.m., a Pennsylvania State Police Trooper followed an underage motorist for more than a mile under the belief that the motorist may have been under the influence of alcohol “due to the time of the night.” Although the trooper could not establish any PA Motor Vehicle Code violations due to erratic or other bad driving, he nevertheless initiated the motor vehicle stop because “an item was hanging from the rear-view mirror of the vehicle.”

After a preliminary hearing, Erie DUI lawyer Tim George filed a pre-trial motion arguing that the stop violated the constitutional rights of an underage motorist. Shortly before an evidentiary hearing on the issue, the Commonwealth agreed to withdraw the charge of DUI.

Mr. George and his entire office staff were very kind and helping me through my first ever experience with the law. He was able to get me exactly what he said he would in the outcome of my trial. The entire staff was very informative and kept me up to date on everything. Very pleased with my experience and would most definately recommend him to others.
