No Trial is Unwinnable
Utah Criminal Defense Attorney
Utah attorney Ryan Holtan has continued his string of jury trial victories with a seemingly impossible win in a DUI case in Salt Lake. The defendant was charged with DUI following a traffic accident and a subsequent blood test showing a .23 blood alcohol level. This would normally be an open and shut conviction but Mr. Holtan successfully proved to the jury that despite the scientific evidence the blood could not have belonged to his client and that accident had simply been the result of tiredness not intoxication.
Utah criminal defense attorney Ryan Holtan forced the arresting officer to demonstrate the field sobriety tests in open court in front of the jury and proved that his client had actually shown NO signs of intoxication. The jury deliberated for less than hour before they found the defendant no guilty.
