Case #: 2018CT######
The Client was charged with DUI after she was involved in a crash. The Client was immediately taken to the hospital where she got into several arguments with law enforcement and the nursing staff. The Officer smelled alcohol on the Client and noticed she seemed impaired. The Officer asked the Client for a legal blood sample, which she refused to give. However, the nursing staff then took a medical blood sample from the Client which showed she was more than three times over the legal limit. The Firm investigated the case and discovered that the Officer improperly requested the medical blood result from hospital staff. As a result, any evidence showing the Client's blood alcohol level was inadmissible. The State agreed and dismissed the DUI.
