Not Guilty Of Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI)

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

In June 2012, John Ingrassia obtained a not guilty verdict after trial for his client charged with Driving While Ability Impaired by Alcohol (DWAI) Mr. Ingrassia's cross examination of the arresting police officer and breath test operator established that his client's condition was not consistent with an impaired person and the police officer, despite a breath test reading of a .07% Blood Alcohol Content conceded that he was unable to state with any degree of confidence what the driver's actual blood alcohol content was at the time the vehicle was being driven and stopped by the police.

Had the accused been found guilty of DWAI a mandatory 90 day license suspension and a mandatory fine and surcharge would have been imposed.
