People v. Amelia C

December 2010


.14 BAC (PAS)/.12 BAC (EPAS):

HUNG JURY (9 of 12 Jurors for Not Guilty) - ENTIRE CASE DISMISSED.

Young single working mother with two small children was accused of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) in Anderson, California.  An Anderson Police Officer testified at trial that Amelia did poorly on the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs), blew a .14 BAC on the roadside breath test (PAS), and a .12 BAC on the chemical test after being arrested.  After approximately 6 hours of jury deliberation, the Foreperson held back tears as she announced to the Court that the jury was deadlocked - 9 jurors voted not guilty and 3 jurors voted guilty. After a 4 day jury trial in Shasta County, the entire case was then dismissed.

(Note a .08 BAC or more causes two separate and distinct actions - one by the court and one by DMV).

Practice area(s): DUI / DWI

Court: Shasta County Superior Court
