Rolled to NFG

Wayne County, Iowa.  Attorney Matt Lindholm (aka The Wolf) recently obtained a NFG (Not Friggin Guilty) verdict from a Wayne County jury for a client facing an OWI second offense charge.  The client was charged following a roll over accident.  At trial officers testified that the client’s speech was slurred, he had blood shot eyes, failed the horizontal gaze nystagmus test, and refused to submit to a breath test.  Video was shown to the jury depicting the client’s speech, his eyes, and the circumstances surrounding his refusal to submit to a breath test (i.e. because he was unable to speak to an attorney) all undermining the officers’ testimony to the jury.  The jury returned a not guilty verdict in just a little over an hour.
