New DWI laws go into effect October 1st.
The most important is “S.L. 2016-10 (H 357): Amendments to procedures governing admissibility of written chemical analysis results in DWI cases.”
Today’s post focuses on the defense’s responsibilities.
The new law concerns the “notice and demand” statutes regarding the admissibility of chemical analyses in DWI cases.
The defense must file a written objection to the State’s use of Blood or urine tests. Failure to file a written objection the first setting after notice cannot be corrected. Therefore if not objected to in the first five days after notice, such objection is forever waived.
If you have been charged with a DWI, had blood taken, or refused the State’s DWI testing procedures, contact the 10.0 DWI attorneys at Garrett, Walker, Aycoth and Olson. We are here to help!
