Appeal: State v. P.L., 10-1-00006-1

July 2011

DUI Conviction Reversed on appeal : The Skamania County Superior Court reversed a DUI conviction and ordered a new trial in a case where the breath test results (BAC) were improperly given to a jury. The improper admission of BAC evidence was prejudicial to a defendant and the prejudice could not be cured by a judge telling a jury to disregard the evidence. The Court found that our client's trial attorney had provided ineffective assistance of counsel when he failed to ask the court to grant a mistrial so the defendant could receive a fair trial without the jury knowing the BAC result. We handled the appeal of this matter.
