Prior Case History:
In 2003, our client was charged with felony aggravated DUI – he had his six year-old child as a passenger. His only traffic violation was driving over the speed limit. His blood was drawn over two-and-a-half hours after the traffic stop. The numbers came back at only slightly over the legal limit. The State’s expert could not testify that our client was over the legal limit at the time of driving; the State could not prove his driving was impaired to the slightest degree because he was only speeding. There were also irregularities with the procedure used to draw our client’s blood at the scene.
After losing at an evidentiary hearing, and after an aborted appeal, the State eventually dismissed the charges before trial.
