Not guilty verdict – refusal of breath test

 

May 27, 2016 – Jason Lantz secured another not guilty verdict.  In a triscales_notguilty-753313al in Snohomish County District Court, Evergreen Division, Mr. Lantz’s client was charged with DUI after submitting to a breath test with a result of .22.  During trial, Mr. Lantz successfully argued that the breath test results should be excluded because there were serious concerns about the State’s ability to lay the proper foundation for the test (and, therefore, whether the test was accurate and reliable).  The jury returned a no guilty verdict exonerating his client.
