Utah criminal defense attorney Ryan Holtan continues string of jury trial victories

Utah Criminal Defense Attorney Ryan Holtan

Utah Criminal Defense Attorney

Utah attorney Ryan Holtan is feeling happy, following another jury trial victory with a win in a DUI case in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The defendant was charged with a DUI following a traffic accident.  The subsequent blood test showed a .23 blood alcohol level.  These facts would typically lead to an open and shut conviction; but Mr. Holtan proved successfully to the jury that the blood could not scientifically have belonged to his client and that accident was the result of tiredness, not intoxication.

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.

For more news on Mr. Holtan, see "Salt Lake City Utah Criminal Defense Attorney Ryan Holtan Wins Dismissal of Class A Misdemeanor Assault Charges".  Also see "Salt Lake City Criminal Attorney Ryan Holtan Continues String of Jury Trial Success".

"Never rule out trial as an option, sometimes it’s the only way to win," explains Criminal Attorney Ryan Holtan who enjoys being in trial.

Ryan N. Holtan practices criminal defense and trial law at PEARSON BUTLER Law.  He was raised in Alaska and attended college in Montana and raced for Montana State University’s NCAA ski team.  Mr. Holtan attended the University of Utah law school.  As a third year law student, he participated in a year-long criminal clinic as a prosecutor with the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office.
