This lawyer is working hard to get a woman freed from her drunk driving arrest by claiming that his client’s coat-chewing was to blame for the high results of her breathalyzer!
Jana Moschgat, 47, was pulled over for suspected drunk driving earlier in the year. She smelled of alcohol and failed a field sobriety test. As suspected, her blood-alcohol level was 0.151 percent, nearly twice the legal limit.
But things took a big turn in court when an officer testified that Moschgat was nibbling on her coat before he gave her the breath test, which is when he ordered her to stop.
Moschgat’s lawyer pounced, asking the officer if he knew the chemical composition of the coat, noting that certain substances can alter the results of the test.
Because of this lawyer’s fast thinking, Moschgat still stands a chance, as the judge ruled that there was enough evidence to send the charges to trial. We can’t wait to hear the results of this court case!
