State v. C. Rasmussen

Todd F. La Neve

Case Conclusion Date:December 28, 2009

Practice Area:DUI / DWI

Outcome:Not Guilty - Jury Trial Verdict

Description:Ms. Rasmussen was charged with 1st offense DUI following a traffic stop. She allegedly failed field sobriety tests and the breath test with a result of .091. At trial, co-counseled with attorney Jason Glass of our firm, we presented evidence of Ms. Rasmussen's medical history, which included significant back, spinal, and head injuries, as well as severe asthma and reflux, all of which combined to invalidate all of the results of all of the tests in the minds of the jurors. Expert consultant Joseph Citron was our defense medical expert. The jury deliberated for about 40 minutes before returning a unanimous Not Guilty verdict.
