A Las Vegas attorney who regularly defends DUI suspects is facing a bench trial following his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports 56-year-old John Leo Duffy was arrested last month and a bench trial for him is scheduled for July 9.
Duffy was booked on March 3 into the Clark County Detention Center and later charged with DUI and failure to maintain a lane according to a criminal complaint.
Duffy was released on his own recognizance.
Since Duffy works closely with the vehicular crimes unit of the county district attorney’s office, the Nevada Attorney General’s Office has been solicited to handle the prosecution of the case.
The County Commission is scheduled to vote Tuesday on handing the case to the state AG’s Office.
