I received a notice in the mail that the DA's office had discovery materials that were available for me to pick-up (I did not make the request). Thinking that it was my blood results, I picked up the documents. It turns out that the documents are not my blood results but rather documents detailing how the lab had significant errors in their results between 11/2011 and 3/2012 (my DUI arrest was 8/2012). Included in the documents is a list of all the retests and emails/docs detailing the investigation.
My question is, how does this affect my case? It has been 10 weeks since my arrest, I have already been to my arraignment (DA had me plead 'Not Guilty') and I still have no blood results.
