Why did a judge rejected throwing BAC test when I clearly marked that I expressed confusion on the form. Is there a precedent?
Hello, I took a field sobriety test after getting into an accident (not at fault, no injuries), i took the field sobriety test but not the portable breathalyzer test. I was booked and had all my rights read to me. While being interrogated I wasn't aware that the officer could call a lawyer for me, although I did consent to taking the breath test fearing an immediate license suspension (need for work), it was .16 On one of the forms, it asks whether you are confused. I checked yes and the officer never attempted to show me a list of available lawyers. Today, in a motion to throw the evidence before trial, the judge estimated that I was "educated" enough and didn't fulfill the confusion state! The officer recognized that it wasn't him checking the box. I am wondering if that check mark is subjective and the officer had no obligation to provide me with a lawyer at the time of the incident. I honestly did not know how things worked, and given the state I was in, I couldn't make clear judgement. Now, going to trial probably expected to fail, can I argue the same further in an appeals court or cut my losses and move on with my life? Do I have a case?
