STATE V. C.H.-2

County: Hennepin (6/2012)
Charges: 2nd Degree DWI (two prior DWI's plus a Test Refusal)
Outcome: The State charged C.H. with a 2nd Degree DWI because he had two prior DWI's plus he refused a urine test on the current case. Ryan Pacyga challenged probable cause for the charge, arguing that the test refusal should be thrown out because the officer failed to offer an alternative test. He convinced the prosecutor, and the case resolved for a careless driving with no jail.
