this happened in las vegas/ henderson nevada..they're saying they didin't have the blood results then so they threw it out, but that they have the results from the test now
Likely your case wasn't thrown out, but rather the court informed you that since the prosecution didn;t have the chemical results yet, they were not ready to proceed. The court generally says that "if and when the prosecution files the case, youwill receive a summons to appear.". That is what has occurred. The prosecution has 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges. It generally takes at least 4 months to get the blood results back, sometimes much longer. Now you need a great attorney to beat the case. With the McNeely decison havng come down, this is a good time to run motins to suppress the blood draws. Call my office for a free consultation and more information on the McNeely decison, andhow it will impact Nevada's Implied Consent Law. (702) 471-0321
In CA, when the prosecution doesn't have the blood test results, a defendant is discharged from a case. Many people mistake being discharged for the case being dismissed, but it's not the same thing. I suggest calling a few DUI attorneys in the Las Vegas area, and hiring the one that is the best fit. Good luck.
