Jury Verdict of Not Guilty despite 0.156 BAC

Client AS was driving home after going to a bar for trivia night.  He was stopped by Chicago Police for a minor traffic violation, and despite doing fairly well on field sobriety tests, he was arrested for DUI.  At the police station, he took a breath test which produced a result of 0.156 BAC.  Mr. Wallin took the case to a Chicago jury, and was able to successfully argue that Mr. S.’s acid reflux made the breath test inaccurate, and that putting that test aside, there was insufficient evidence to support a finding of guilty.  After deliberating, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty on both counts of DUI!
