Did you have your BAC retested?

As a criminal defense attorney, it is common to have results of a client’s blood alcohol submission retested. This ensures accuracy, that the previous results were not tampered, and that the prosecuting office still has the evidence to be tested. In drug cases, this is also standard practice, and should always be utilized.

Recently, stories have come out about the potential for tampering at the DPS lab level, where many counties, including Comal, send off their blood alcohol samples to be tested. Just the sheer idea that one can not rely upon these results raises many red flags and should be used in the defense of your case.

Innocence Prevails

After decades of imprisonment for a crime they did not commit, Dan and Fram Keller were released from a Texas prison. They will be compensated a total of $3.6 million dollars, at a rate of $80,000.00 a year of imprisonment each, for having been falsely accused and incarcerated for heinous crimes they did not commit. 

In 2013, a Judge found that the couple did not receive a fair trial, remanding the case to the trial court. Now, the Travis County District Attorney’s Office has dismissed the charges based on lack of “credible evidence.” 

Such is a lesson that one can not give up on their innocence. There are many appellate channels that can be utilized in order to achieve freedom, and The Law Offices of Courtney Miller, PLLC are here to help.
