ALR findings in DWI Login/Join 
Member
posted
We are needing help in a DWI trial in Hunt County. The Defense attorney is trying to get the results of the ALR hearing (in the defendants favor because the trooper did not show) in front of the jury. I want to keep it out. How?

I think I remember seeing a case on point at one time, but now I can't find it.

Any advice or cites would be greatly appreciated.

Keith, look at State v. Brabson, 966//493 (CCA 1998); Reynolds v. State, 4///13 (CCA 1999); State v. Aguilar, 947//257. There's an annotation about ALR, double jeopardy, and DWI on p. 127 of TDCAA's annotated codes book, Criminal Laws of Texas. Hope this helps.

And if you call now, you can have that book faster than you can say Voir Dire!

That is, depending on how you pronounce "voir dire".

Everyone in Texas knows it's pronounced "vore dire" (like "dire consequences" and not "vwah deer"). Do I get one of those books now? big grin

You bet, Jane. Especially since you're not one of those grief-giving Bradley brothers.
