OWI FELONY CHARGES DISMISSED ON DEFENDANT'S MOTION, SEPTEMBER 26, 2017

Attorney Dimmer represented a client, charged with an OWI-Causing Great Bodily Harm, after she collided with a motorcycle during a left-hand turn. The client was found to have minimal amounts of marijuana in her system at the time of the collision. Attorney Dimmer filed a motion to suppress the blood sample test result, as the investigators had threatened to arrest his client unless she gave a blood sample. Without authority to arrest the client, Wisconsin law does not permit investigators to make such threats. The court threw out the blood sample, and the State dismissed the charges.
