OWI-2ND CLIENT FOUND NOT GUILTY AT JURY TRIAL, DECEMBER 14, 2017

Attorney Dimmer's client picked up two OWI offenses within 90 days of one another. By the time the client had contacted Richards & Dimmer, the client had already pleaded guilty to one of the OWI offenses. Attorney Dimmer recognized that one of them had a very good defense--no blood or breath sample was ever taken from the client. 

Attorney Dimmer reopened the OWI and it proceeded to the circuit court as a second offense. At a jury trial, the defense argued that the police department had failed to prove that the client was intoxicated, despite the incident occurring in the early morning hours of New Year's Day. 

Within an hour, the jury returned a not guilty verdict and acquitted the client on the OWI-2nd offense.
