February 11, 2009.  Charge: operating while under the influence of liquor. Two state troopers

testified against my client, who failed both the breath test and the field sobriety tests.  One of the

troopers (the one who testified that my client failed the standardized field sobriety tests) was by

the time of trial a field sobriety test instructor, and he was quite hostile and argumentative.  The

other trooper (the one who testified that my client failed the breath test) was by the time of trial

working in the Office of Alcohol testing, and testified that he was qualified to repair and

maintain the breath test machine).  My client was found not guilty of impaired operation, and not

guilty of operating with a BAC of .08% or higher.
