my mother was 69 yoa, now 70 when she was stopped by the sheriffs office. they were on what i call a sting for that location, everyone else knew about it but her it seems as the normally busy hwy was all but deserted. she was tailgated till she swerved more by intimidation than anything else. he asked her to take the FST and she tried. this test is Not recommended for anyone 62 and over as it is barely physically possible for younger people. she did not know this that there were alternatives for those over 62 which she was. she also had a long standing foot problem she informed the officer which he ignored stating that if she sais she'll try so be it. the alternate test which are viable test for those under the influence was neither offered to her or given. they used the film of the test court to show the jury she failed the walk test, so they used this prejudiced tape against her and to charge her with dui. her blow was .08/.07 which is borderline at best and with the + & - of the test puts her squarely in the sober category. Whithout giving her tests suited for her age and physical condition she should be compensated for this discrimination and have the charges dropped. the trial ended in mistrial after the jury asked the judge while in deliberations if the alternate tests were viable. the judge said he wasn't allowed by law to discuss that or answer, they had to rely on their notes and memories. hung jury. my mom is going broke to prove her innonce. where is the presumption of innocence? anyway i want to help her settle this once and for all. can i write the judge as a new trial date is set for 7/30 this year and this is going to break her menallly and physically. she had since had the much needed operation and is recouperating please please help!!!!
