State V. B.K.
County: Dakota (6/2012)
Charges: 1st Degree Felony DWI (his fourth DWI within 10 years)
Outcome: The State charged B.K. with a FELONY 1st Degree DWI because this was his fourth DWI in a ten-year period. Ryan Pacyga challenged the stop, arguing that the officer violated B.K.’s constitutional rights because the officer did not have enough cause under the law to pull B.K. over. The prosecutor argued that the officer had three separate reasons to pull B.K. over. The judge agreed with Ryan Pacyga and DISMISSED the entire case.
