Mr. Keller’s client was charged with Driving after Cancellation as Inimical to Public Safety (DAC-IPS) which happens when a driver’s license is cancelled for too many DWI’s, as well as fourth degree DWI and driving in violation of a restricted license (B-card violation).  Even though his client had 3 prior DWI’s, Mr. Keller got his client’s implied consent driver’s license revocation thrown out in March, 2011 when he showed that his client had a prescription for the drugs that showed up in a blood test after the client was arrested for DWI.  The same test showed that the driver had NO ALCOHOL in his system whatsoever.  Then, at a contested omnibus hearing in the Dakota County DWI  criminal case on July 20, 2011, Mr. Keller got the criminal fourth degree DWI charge dismissed for the same reasons, even though his client had 3 prior DWI’s so that this was his fourth repeat DWI.  His client, who plead guilty to DAC, received no jail time and was very happy.
