My client was accused of a felony DWI resulting in the death of an alleged passenger. However, the methods used by the trooper to obtain “confessions”, as well as his testimony, were suspect. Further, the State had released the vehicle to the insurance company, which resulted in it being turned into scrap metal before we had an opportunity to evaluate the evidence obtained from the vehicle. After hearing, the Court suppressed my client’s alleged confessions and found the trooper’s testimony to be not credible, and made favorable rulings as to other evidentiary matters. Ultimately, the client was placed on probation following the sentencing hearing.
