Appeal: State v. J.E., 09-1-00440-9.
Superior Court Reverses Trial Court Conviction: A Superior Court judge has ruled that the trial court erroneously prevented the defendant from applying the “safely off the roadway” defense to a charge of DUI/Physical Control. The Court ruled that city code provisions which attempted to make it impossible to present this defense were in conflict with state law requirements, and thus were unenforceable.
