Junk Science in Ohio DUI/OVI Cases

[caption id="attachment_26" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Intoxilyzer 8000"][/caption]When you hear a DUI/OVI attorney decrying "junk science" that is used in court, they are most likely referring to the fact that the air blown into the breath test machine for purposes of testing cannot be the same air that is exchanged with the deep lung alveolar sacs. It is impossible to limit the breath test to limit itself to deep lung alveolar air. The theory breaks down because: IF THE MAJORITY OF AIR BEING MEASURED HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BLOOD EXCHANGE THEN THE TEST IS NOT MEASURING THE AMOUNT...

Actual Guilt vs. Legal Guilt

Image via Wikipedia"We make a distinction in this case between the "actual" guilt or innocence of a defendant and the "legal" guilt or innocence of a defendant. "Legal" guilt or innocence is that determination made by the trier of fact in a criminal trial.  Thus a defendant found "legally" guilty has been found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury of his peers in a criminal adjudication. "Actual" guilt is intended to refer to a determination in a civil trial, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the defendant engaged in the conduct he was accused of in the...

In each case, the majority has agreed...

DUI Position Paper of the National Motorists Association

The NMA supports drinking and driving regulations based on reasonable standards that differentiate between responsible, reasonable behavior and reckless, dangerous behavior. The NMA does not support "zero tolerance" concepts, nor does it endorse unconstitutional enforcement and judicial procedures that violate motorists' rights. Basic TenetsWe believe that penalties for DUI/DWI should be related to the degree of risk involved, and that these penalties be equated with penalties for equal-risk violations of other traffic safety laws. We support those legislative and enforcement initiatives that are effective in achieving stated goals of deterrence and removal of impaired drivers. We do not support initiatives based on revenge,...

DUI Defenses Should be Permitted

Image by alancleaver_2000 via FlickrThe accused in a DUI case has the right under the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to present witnesses and evidence in his favor.  The Supreme Court upheld these rights in Washington v. Texas (1967), 388 U.S. 14, 19, 87 S.Ct. 1920, stating, "the right to offer testimony of witnesses, if necessary, is in plain terms the right to present a defense.  Just as an accused has the right to confront the prosecution's witnesses to challenge their testimony, he has the right to present his witnesses to establish a defense.  This...
