blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Jury Trial Day

1.17.2012

Jury Trial Day

The normal entertainment level will be sporadic on here.

Edit: The State had to dismiss its case when their expert could not give an opinion as to whether someone who has a .02 alcohol concentration (.08 is the legal limit) and hydrocodone at .01 milligrams per liter (under "therapeutic levels) would be intoxicated.

Legal authority: Layton v. State.

Irony of ironies: The only reason we knew about the low level of hydrocodone and alcohol was because of a blood search warrant. My client refused a voluntary sample. Had the State not taken the blood by force, I'd still be up there.
