A "SWEARING MATCH" BETWEEN COP AND CLIENT: THE CLIENT WON

MB hired Sifers' office to defend his Oklahoma County Felony DUI case. This was a second time felony and he was facing seven (7) years in jail and a $5,000 fine. MB did not take the breath test OR do any field sobriety tests. The D.A. wanted MB to go to jail for no less than three (3) years. Mr. Sifers announced for Jury Trial. Mr. Sifers positioned the "theme" of this jury trial as nothing but a difference of opinion: that of the arresting officer that MB was "drunk"; and, that of MB's that he was not. And, that since the burden of proof on the State was beyond a reasonable doubt, MB's opinion must carry MORE weight as to the question of whether he WAS drunk, not the arresting officer. After a 2 day trial, and a closing argument that the judge in the case in the case described to his court reporter as "brilliant", the jury not MB NOT GUILTY. The editor of the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Weekly wrote: "Extraordinary win here and I don't think there are but a handful of lawyers in the state who could have tried this case and achieved the same result."
