Michigan OUID Dismissed
Mr. Cross represented a gentleman charged with Operating Under the Influence of Drugs, or OUID.
The arresting trooper believed the client was under the influence of marijuana and heroine. Mr. Cross requested extensive evidence from the prosecutor with regard to the testing procedures and blood evidence obtained from the client.
The results were ultimately produced by the Michigan State Police Crime lab and Mr. Cross moved for dismissal of the charges based on questionable test procedures and insufficient trace amounts of drugs in the clients system to justify an allegation that the drugs affected the client's ability to drive.
RESULT: OUID DISMISSED. CHARGE REDUCED TO $100 CIVIL PENALTY FOR TRAFFIC VIOLATION.
