Client was in a single car accident where he hit a tree.  Client was interviewed by a police officer and then taken to a hospital where his blood was drawn resulting in a Blood Alcohol Concentration significantly above the .08 limit.  Mr. Kemmerick requested a hearing where he cross examined the arresting officer regarding the arrest and reading of ‘implied consent’ to take the client’s blood.  Judge agreed with defense that the procedure was improper and suppressed the results of the blood test, making them inadmissible at trial.  State dropped the DUI for a reduced charge of Reckless Driving.
