Breath Test – .147

Client stopped for disregarding DPS trooper who was directing traffic.  Client displayed a strong odor of alcohol and had red blood shot eyes.  After failed field sobriety tests and being arrested, Client blew a .147.  Attorney Segura hired a surveyor who discovered that Client had not operated his vehicle in the county of prosecution.  The case proceeded to trial and after a jury was selected and empaneled, Attorney Segura informed the prosecutor that the case had been filed in the wrong county.  After a brief discussion with the trooper, the case was dismissed.   Double jeopardy prevented the case from being re-filed in the proper county.
