How Can Someone Hear Not Guilty Or Case Dismissed On A DWI Case?
Gary Churak's Answer
These are actually two different things, because for a verdict of “not guilty”, the jury would have to hear the evidence and find that there was not sufficient evidence to convict the person. Getting a case dismissed happens when the DA chooses to not prosecute the person any longer, for any of a number of reasons, such as not being able to contact the officer, such as if the officer was unavailable or no longer with the force; or there may be an issue with the breath test or blood test coming back flawed. There are a number of reasons why a prosecutor might dismiss a DWI case.
