|Utah Criminal Defense Attorney Ryan Holtan|
Utah Criminal Defense AttorneyUtah 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.
