Breath Test in East Lansing-Drunk Driving Case says Man is Nearly Twice the Legal Limit - Jury Still Says "No" to a Conviction as DUI Attorney Mike Nichols of Meridian Township Fights for His Client

By Michael Nichols

An East Lansing jury recently refused to convict a man of drunk driving or even operating while visibly impaired even though the datamaster dmt breath test instrument claimed his breath alcohol content was .15/.14. Mike Nichols was the trial attorney for the accused man. Nichols says "the prosecution brought everyone from the head of the alcohol enforcement unit for the Michigan State Police to the top engineer from the manufacturer of the instrument. We are obviously pleased with a hung jury."

More on this incredible case can be found at the blog spot for the National College for DUI Defense:
