DUI Not Guilty!

L. Kenneth Chotiner

Case Conclusion Date:February 20, 2013

Practice Area:DUI / DWI

Outcome:Not Guilty

Description:Client arrested for a DUI because he was Jamaican. Cops assumed they would find marijuana in his blood. They were right. But they did not find the active ingredient only the inactive metabolite. In Pennsylvania that is enough to convict. However, I objected to the test results because of an evidentiary issue. The Court sustained my objection and kept the blood results out of evidence. Another win.
